I have been to a lot of beaches and this one is probably the worst one ever. We were so disappointed in how trashed the shoreline is with plastic. There was really no place to sit in the sand and it felt unsafe to take our sandals off. I could forgive a littered beach but what I couldn't overlook was all of the plastic in the water. It literally felt like we were swimming in garbage. I've never witnessed anything like it. It was so depressing and I really hope that some of these huge investors in Bali address the plastics problem. Fortunately we came to Bali to experience the culture. If you are going for the beach go somewhere else... or at least get a hotel with a great pool. This beach deserves 1 star but I gave it 2 because the locals there will give you surf lessons for dirt cheap.

Very long beach with tides that change very quickly. When the tide was rising around 1:00 pm, surfers appeared to catch the waves. Not a Beach that you can really swim as the surfer break line is close to the shoreline. Certainly not a Beach for small children. Lots off vendors and food offered along the shoreline. Did notice a wee bit of garbage on the beach like straws, wrappers, etc but nothing stinky or smelly. Great place to sit and watch the waves or hop in them.

Kuta Beach wasn’t that great, it wasn’t that dirty but it wasn’t clean either, but there were too many people trying to sell me things the entire time, if the local people can stop hassling tourist all the time, the experience might have been better.

Every 10 steps I took there was always someone hassling me to buy they service or products.

Seriously it was kind of annoying , hope the situation gets better there.

Really don’t see what the fuss is all about
- Full of Fake Local people who just scam you for money and tourist just don’t see it
- limited Halal Food
- Dirty Beaches
- Save your Money and go elsewhere
-Not Cheap at all- besides the $10 massages

Don’t recommend at all
