Bali - South Coast

Everything good, bad and plain ugly in Bali can be found within a 15 minute drive of Bali’s Ngurah Rai Airport. Bali’s south coast encompasses the majority of Bali’s upmarket hotels, downmarket bars, luxury resorts and tacky clubs.

The beaches run practically back-to-back: Seminyak, Legian, Kusa, Tuban, reaching the surf mecca of Uluwatu on the southern tip, before coming back up to embrace Nusa Dua, Benoa, Jimbaran Bay, and finally Sanur.

Each resort has its own flavour and brand of tourism, from luxury to low-brow. The benefit from being so close is that you are guaranteed variety.

It’s in this area that modern tourism began with the 1960’s surf bum and hippy trail, breeding a great sense of loyalty that many guests feel to the area. Most of the beaches are now filled back-to-back with hotels, meaning many of the better and newer) resorts have been built away from the beach, although normally with complementary beach club.
