About KUTA Lombok
"The scenery is spectacular, with cliffs and mountains reaching the coast to create jagged and awe- inspiring landscapes and views."... there is more... a LOT more
Aside from the name Kuta-Lombok has not much in common with its overdeveloped namesake Kuta-Bali. There are no big nightclubs, fancy bars or flagship-stores for surf brands, but it faces south, and its beaches receive the same Indian Ocean swells.
Kuta is a holiday paradise for surfers and travelers with a lazy and relaxed atmosphere, it is the perfect base camp for exploring the southern beaches and is just a stone’s throw away from most of the Surf Spots. The village is situated on a bay and offers a good variety of restaurants for all budgets.
The side of the road is filled with small shops selling Sarongs and other souvenirs. Get a Sarong and use it as a colorful beach towel, they’re made of good quality and really handy to have.
If you’re interested in the local lifestyle you can visit Sade and Rambitan, two traditional Sasak villages 10km north of Kuta. Both are open to tourists where locals will show you the architecture and their communal way of life for a small fee.
On Wednesday and Sunday there is small Market in Kuta which is worth a visit.
