If you are looking for a social environment close to the budget and midrange accommodation and the bars and clubs then Kuta beach is for you. This white sand beach is beautiful during the dry season and is a great place to surf and meet other people as well as starting the night with some drinks while the sun sets. With the most social area at the south of Kuta beach, as you head further north up the coast you will find that the atmosphere turns into a more laid back family scene around Legian and then into a couples or family scene around Seminyak where there are some beautiful high class restaurants and bars located right on the beach.
For a family or couples atmosphere with a little more class you can try Sanur for a long white sand beach with lagoons of clear water and shaded paths running up the beach passing market stalls, beach cafes and water sports facilities. Nusa Dua offers a more up-market scene similar to Sanur with possibly more beautiful with interesting out crops of rock adding features to the coastline.
If you are interesting in surfing then you will enjoy the beaches along the Bukit at the very south of the island of Bali. All of these Bali Beaches provide excellent reef breaks and usually a long walk down a cliff to a white sand beach with a lagoon. If you are interesting in diving the north coast or the north east will be your place where black and white sand beaches offer excellent snorkeling and there are many great dive sights located close by. Black sand beaches are usually found in the volcanic areas along the northern areas of the east and the west of the coastline al though there are still plenty of white sand beaches. Thos who really want to get away from it can choose a luxury boutique villa outside one of the smaller seaside villages such as Candidasa, Padangbai, Lovina or Singaraja where there will be a much more tranquil and secluded atmosphere perfect for honeymooners as well as those who are looking for a more relaxing break.
