Kuta Beach: During the pandemic, Kuta was arguably hit hardest. Vastly popular with Australian tourists, the hotel and bar-zone centered around Poppies I and Poppies II became a ghost-town almost overnight. Now less frantic, Kuta is regaining some of its lost appeal and is an affordable and centrally located base for family holidays as well as for nightlife.
