For shopping sprees, walk through Poppies Lane and find many beach apparel outlets as well as surf shops where you might chance upon some surfboard bargains.

By night, find yourself in one of many wild fetes happening across town. Pre-game at Sky Garden Rooftop Lounge where you can grab an all-you-can-eat BBQ buffet that comes with free-flowing beer or enjoy a sunset cocktail at Azul Beach Club. Visit the iconic Hard Rock Cafe along Jalan Pantai Kuta for some live music with local bands or special guest performers. For a one-stop nightlife spot, LXXY Bali is the place to go.
