The main road in Kuta has a multitude of shops and restaurants on each side selling a wide variety of goods including swimwear, sarongs, handicrafts, cassette’s, CDs, jewelry, clothing, furniture and leather goods. You’ll also get hit for watches, transport and bracelets from the ever present street hawker. If you’re not interested in their wares, don’t make eye contact. If you look at the goods, they will follow you for the next kilometre or so even if you insist you’re not buying!

The upper end of Jl. Legian from Seminyak to Krobokan has turned somewhat into an enclave of boutiques specializing in men’s and ladies clothing, interior and homewares stores, antiques, furniture and some interesting deli’s and warungs. There’s not many hawkers up this end of the street which makes for a nice change.
Kuta has some department stores and shopping centres where the prices are fixed, try Kuta Square and Kuta Centre located very close to each other in Jalan Kartika Plaza.
