Dreamland beach

New Kuta far more appropriate

What we say: 1 star

Now the beachhead for the sprawling Pecatu Indah Resort complex, Dreamland has been renamed New Kuta — an entirely appropriate action. Today, above the beach stands a colossal monument to bad taste, an absolute eyesore and complete blight on the landscape.

Yeah, we're not fans. Nor are the families who ran warungs on the beach and got kicked off their land. Nor are many of the surfers, who left for other beaches. Nor are the regulars who had visited here year in year out to avail themselves to simple beach pleasures. Apparently the developers are though, so at least this gigantic aberration made someone happy.

Our advice? Try the next beach south, Balangan or, further south still, Padang Padang.

If you're still torn, parking is 15,000 rupiah for a car and 5,000 rupiah for motorbike — more than double any of the other beaches on the Bukit.
