A real gastronomic paradise for tourists. The resort does not boast of any attractions at all. But this does not prevent it from receiving tens of thousands of travelers every year.

For a relaxing and measured vacation, the Legian promenade is suitable. It is famous for its steel-colored shores. The most affordable prices are on Kuta. By the way, it is the most visited resort in Bali. It has water parks, bars, clubs and shopping centers for every budget.
