First time to bali! Legian or kuta?

First time visitor to bali.

Would like to know where to stay? Kuta, legian? Good accommodation?

Travelling in October. Also things to do? All I can find is "spa, and relaxing".. Looking for snorkeling, animals, tours, shopping...

1. Re: First time to bali! Legian or kuta?

Kuta and Legian are almost indistinguishable from each other. The west coast of Bali, where Kuta and Legian are, are not suitable for snorkelling due to the open ocean swells which create sometimes large waves on the beaches and reefs. Maybe Sanur, Candidasa or somewhere on the east coast would be more suitable, there's spas, restaurants, tours and snorkelling. One of the DE's will be able to guide you further.

Sanur is better for you in my opinion. It has better swimming and is on the better side of Bali for snorkelling and day trips.

I don't know of many large shops over that side, but you could always do a shopping day trip with a driver who will take you to all the malls and outlets.
