    Beach activities at Kuta, Bali-II

    by goutammitra Written Apr 11, 2012

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Ride on a Glass Bottom Boat:

    Here the water is so clear that you can see depth up to 5'-6' feet with your naked eye. They take you to a place where you can see live Corals, various fishes , Sea weeds. If you have an Under Water Camera , it's a feast for your eyes. Even if you don't have then they put bread crumbs in your hand to attract the fishes, you can take lots of picture as the time allowed here is about 15-20 mts. With glass bottom, you can also take lots of pictures.

    Beach activities at Kuta, Bali

    by goutammitra Written Apr 11, 2012

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    You have various beach activities available at all the beaches of Bali, such as Surfing, Boating, Sailing, Water Skiing, Banana Boat, Scuba Diving, Speed Boat riding, Para Sailing and so on. We took Speed Boat riding besides some more small activities. Munu wanted to experiment with Para Sailing, but the height of Para-Sailing perhaps scared her a bit.

    Please note: Here also you are expected to bargain a lot on the printed price of beach activities. The printed prices are from USD$ 10 to USD$45 for each activity. But you can get at least 3 activities combined for USD$ 20-25 if you can bargain.

    Equipment: Various, available on rent or with the operator.

    At certain times of the year,
    the weather conditions are favorable
    for the ruthless sports person
    with strong arm muscles.

    There are plenty of places
    that rent the equipment in Sanur
    and they also can organize tours
    to chase the best places and conditions,

    One business that can assist you is
    Bali Kite Surfing School in Sanur.

    Diving and snorkling at Menjangan Island

    by blue_sky04 Updated Apr 4, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Menjangan Island is a small island located in the northwest of Bali island.
    I've not been there myself, but my friends who like diving & have dived in Menjangan Island told me that this island is a good place for diving or snorkling.
    I hope this information is useful for you and give you more options to consider.

    The pic of the fish here was taken by Barbara Phua, a Singaporean tourist who dived at Menjangan Island. Read more about this at:

    For more information about diving in Indonesia, you can check the website below.

    When & Where to Surf

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Trying to catch that perfect wave
    takes more than just the physical effort,
    but also it take knowing what time of the day.

    In several surf shops in Kuta
    you can ask for your free copy of a Tide Chart
    which lists the daily tides for every day of the month
    and the best places to surf.

    You can also check out the web-site below.

    Happy surfing to all you cute boys out there!

    ParaSailing...n everything else!

    by savitha Updated Apr 4, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Many activities such as parasailing,banana boat,jet ski, wakeboarding,water ski, Turtle Island Tour, Sunset Fishing and even diving.

    I did parasailing and snorkelling here at Tanjung Benoa, Nusa Dua.

    Price advertised in the brochure was $15USD for Parasailing & $25USD for a snorkelling tour ( 1hr )...(Btw, price in the website for parasailing is only $10USD)

    The prices in the brochure is still negotiable..So, do not just pay the price and start your activity...

    Managed to get the parasailing for $8USD & 15USD for snorkelling tour & rental of equipment.
    (I still think that it was a bit expensive as in Malaysia, we can go snorkelling for ard RM30 and less... )

    The parasailing activity was fun, but certainly too short! Wished they would let me stay up in the air longer! :)

    Equipment: No need for gear as it is provided... ( with an additional cost, of course! : )

    Learning to Surf

    by neris29 Written Mar 24, 2009

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Kuta is a great place to learn how to surf. This is clear from the many surf schools lining the beach. The surf is just right for beginners.
    I went to one of the largest schools, Odyssey, which was very well run. They have all types of courses to suit all your needs. half day, full day and multiple day courses. The instrcutors are local but can all sepak English. Most schools guarantee that you will be able to stand by the end of the lesson.

    Equipment: The bigger schools will provide all the equipment - rashgard, surfboard, leash, helmet. So just bring your swimsuit.

    Surfing with the Big Kahuna

    by balisunshine Updated Jun 21, 2008

    Since I am not a surfer girl,
    I asked a my friend Kahala
    to do a write up on one of
    the surf schools here in Bali.

    Thanks for the write up Kahala!!!

    'What’s yellow and blue,
    filled with fun and energetic people,
    and conveniently located at the end
    of Poppie’s One in Kuta?
    The answer is Big Kahuna Surf School.

    Guaranteed to “Have You Up and Surfing
    in One Lesson or the Next Lesson’s Free,”
    Big Kahuna has been sharing the joy of surfing
    with adventurous beachgoers for more than twenty years.

    Unlike some surf schools,
    “BK” focuses on ALL aspects of surfing
    including general water safety, wave selection,
    paddling, and through additional lessons, turns and basic maneuvers.

    The lesson begins with a quick meeting
    and check-in at the BK office.
    Adorning the signature yellow and blue BK colors
    and situated at the end of Poppies One,
    the office is literally steps from the welcoming waves of Kuta Beach.
    It is here students receive their wave riding
    ensemble consisting of UV protecting shirts, sunscreen,
    and soft top surfboards.
    Soft top boards are made entirely of foam,
    and not hard resonated fiber glass like most surfboards.
    The softer feel and wider base for easier balancing make them ideal for beginners.

    Equipment: The lesson continues on the beach
    where one of BK’s knowledgeable instructors
    shares the fundamentals of beginner surfing..
    All instructors are personally trained and
    mentored by Big Kahuna himself,
    a Hawaii raised waterman that has been surfing for three decades.
    Students benefit from this wealth of surfing experience
    as they learn the latest and best in surfing techniques.
    BK’s instructors also recognize that while
    some students are natural surfers,
    other students need a bit more personalized attention and instruction.
    The smaller class sizes and great instructor-to-student ratio
    allows BK to accommodate all learning curves and skill sets.
    In fact, the instructors proudly boast they “specialize in beginners and cowards.”
    The second half of the lesson is spent in the shallow,
    sandy bottom waters off Kuta Beach.
    The combination of year round favorable ocean conditions
    and the absence of any reef or rocks make Kuta Beach
    a beginner’s “surfing paradise.”
    It’s not unusual to observe BK students getting
    to their feet and riding waves for 5 to 10 seconds during their first outing..
    The lesson concludes with a wrap-up session back
    at the BK office in which instructors provide some
    final coaching tips and answer questions.
    Students also receive their official BK Surfing Diploma.
    Still not convinced you can be a surfer and hang ten?
    Well, Big Kahuna has successfully taught students ranging in
    age from 5 to 65, including singles, couples, families,
    and even large corporate groups.
    Big Kahuna also provides free transportation
    to/from hotels, digital photographs, insurance,
    and secure lockers to safely store belongings.
    So what are you waiting for?
    Get off your okole (Hawaiian for buttocks) and
    learn to nalu (surf) with Big Kahuna!
    By the way, Big Kahuna recently opened a second location
    on Jalan Padma in Legion.
    This second location is operated by the same friendly staff
    and uses the superior surfing equipment that has
    made their Kuta location so successful.'

    A Big Aloha!!!

    Sweaty Yoga

    by balisunshine Written May 21, 2008

    For those who want to keep up
    the work out routine while visiting Bali,
    then maybe Bikram Yoga can be an option.

    Located within the Istana Kuta Gallery,
    you will find this studio that offers
    morning and afternoon options
    for their courses Monday through Sunday.

    At the time of my visit,
    2 different classes were offered 7 days a week.

    Classes at that time were
    at 130,000 Rp for one class,
    or an unlimited first timer special
    of 400,000 Rp for the week.

    Water Sports at Nusa Dua

    by bladedragon Updated Mar 26, 2008

    There's lots of water sports you can do at Nusa Dua, to name some:
    Banana boats
    Flying fish

    Just drive around the area, there are lots of places in the roadside that have signs offering their wide range of services.
    During my trip there we were approaced by Policemen!
    I thought we got into some trouble or what, but instead they're offering to direct us to one of the water sport shop.

    Experience canyoning tours in Bali! If you are looking for fun and adrenaline-filled adventure, it is for you. It's ridiculously fun and extremely safe provided you go with an experienced instructor.
    This activity is an ultimate outdoor adventure and sport using a variety of techniques that may include walking, abseiling, jumping, sliding down natural slopes and swimming in white water for aquatic canyons. And of course discover beautiful and hidden place at the heart of Balinese nature!
    For me it is #1 activity to do in Bali
