Guidance On Kuta Tourism Area
Many vacationists are confused about the Kuta area. Because the Kuta area can mean; urban village, it also implies sub-district. The scope area when you mention Kuta beach, Waterbom Park Kuta, is within the Kuta urban village area. To clarify, Kuta urban village location is in the Kuta sub-district, Badung Regency, Bali.
Besides the Kuta sub-district, Badung regency also covers the South Kuta sub-district and North Kuta sub-districts. Therefore, don’t confuse between the three sub-district, because of its different area.
- Kuta sub-district. Example area, Kuta urban village (Kuta Beach, Waterbom Park), Seminyak, Legian.
- South Kuta sub-district. Examples of tourist areas in the South Kuta sub-district include; Pecatu, Ungasan, Kutuh, Benoa, Tanjung Benoa, and Jimbaran.
- North Kuta sub-districts. While the North Kuta sub-districts, such as Kerobokan, Tibubeneng, Canggu.
That is why I saw plenty of content regarding a guide on things to do in Kuta on the internet include a wide coverage area. It covers activities in Seminyak, Ungasan, Tanjung Benoa, which is in a different domain with Kuta Urban village.

What Is The Best Way To Go Around Kuta Bali?
