dining on daybed with view to the ocean
if you want to have your breakfast, lunch, or dinner with the best view to the ocean, visit atmosphere.
the restaurant is quite big but the best place is on daybed which is on the upper floor. there are only 3-4 daybeds so during busy hours usually it's hard to get this place.
There are many street shopping area...just like the one in the photos. There's one very near to Kuta beach...all along Legian road...n also a few places more towards Tuban. What you'll find here? Paintings, home decor items, handwoven baskets, clothes, sarong, souvenirs, wood carvings, accessories for the ladies, immitation handbags and etc.
Beachs in Kuta...
"Beaches are okay...."
I'm a real beach snob. Heck, I lived in Hawaii and have a preference for all things tropical. On a scale of 1 - 10... I rate the Beach Environment (taking into consideration sand, water, view, volume/quality of people, coral life, etc.) a 6.
Now it's true certain parts of Bali have better beaches than others, but overall, it's merely an above average rating.
Again, pls note the islands I have visited. You'll understand why I'm so discriminating...
That aside, Bali IS a Surfer's paradise and apparently there is a more than decent scuba scene - - although not to the caliber of micronesia and Australian coast...
Still, Bali Beaches have their moments. Here are but a few beach jpgs I collected while there.
Oh, I can't swim in the water. I have super sensitivity to polluted water: my skin starts to BURN. Both times, both trips (11 years apart!) I entered the water, I got the burn / tingling sensations. I had to get out. Bummers!
"Kuta Cowboys! Ladies... if you got the $..."
...you got a Man!!!!!
"Need massage? Hair Plaited? Pedicure? Manicure?"
You will be swarmed by the Beach Touts, Men and Women!
"Surf Boards... RENT ONE!"
You can rent surfboards and learn to surf. It's not too bad in Kuta... but you'd want some experience if you surfed in Ulu Watu
"Surfs UP! Kuta view towards the South."
"A quiet Beach Tout. She and I enjoyed the sunset"
together, remarkably, in silence. She too got mesmorized by this tranquil moment and forgot to sell me stuff!
