The white sands of Kuta are still arguably the best beachfront on Bali. The beach is much cleaner than just a few years ago, although the vendors remain annoying. Kuta is a booming Pacific resort and its streets are clogged with tourists and traffic during peak seasons. Legian is more of the same, just as crowded, but more suitable for longer stays, although in many ways it has become an extension of Kuta. Further north, Seminyak, Petitenget and Canggu offer more tranquility.
The name Bounty Club is well known, especially among those that have been enjoying a night out in southern Bali. The club, located along Jalan Legian in downtown Kuta, has been a nightlife hotspot for a night out for years already. Located in one of the most busy pieces of nightlife area of entire Bali, Bounty can easily be reached by taxi.
Bounty consists of several different parts that are united into one; there is a restaurant-like area, several stages where bands can perform life until the early hours and of course the ship, the Bounty, where it is all about. Two dance-floors in the open air, however that is just relative, because the building does actually have a roof.
For years this has been a very popular among young people - and the slightly elder alike - that want to have a nice evening out with their friends and alcohol for not too much money. As one of the biggest night spots on the islands in a price range that is affordable to almost all holiday goers, this place is virtually always crowded.
If you don't like the company of Australians, than this is the spot to avoid like it were the plague. The biggest part of the visitors here is Australian and prefers to walk around without a shirt, showing of their many tattoos and other decorations on their bodies. This might as well indicate what kind of people you will find here. You should not be amazed when people 'walk' by in their underwear and on bare feet later in the night, too drunk to remember what they were doing.
From early on in the afternoon people are completely wasted, and for several euro more you can maintain this level of drunkenness until late into the next morning, so you can have your lunch in semi-intoxicated conditions. After that you can go back to Bounty again to get drunk again. Drinking here is stimulated by the many 'sailors' that walk around with a drinks card in their hands looking for those who want to order.
Beer starts from 25.000 Rupiah per botjle, a big plastic jug of ice-cold mix-drink (which seem to be a mere mix of left-overs of alcohol) starts from 50.000 Rupiah and shots are also priced in that range. Drinks are brought to you, but the sailor hopes for a tip.
Staff is almost entirely make here because the place is known for sporadic fighting among mostly drunk Australians that seem to fight each other over the most stupid movements. It can not be named dancing anymore. Funny to see this for a while, but other places in the area offer a better night's out.
