Denpasar is the capital of Bali, Indonesia and the largest city on the island. Apart from the city's diverse array of attractions, Denpasar's Ngurah Rai International Airport is also one of the primary gateways used by foreign tourists on their way to other parts of the island and the rest of Indonesia. Visitors will enjoy Bali's white sand beaches just as much as the exotic cuisine, temples, markets, and museums. You can make your own plans and move around faster if you get a car for hire in Denpasar.
Begin your city tour from Puputan Badung Square. East of the square, you will find the Bali Museum and the Pura Agung Jaganatha temple next to it. Continue further east to find the Fine Arts Institute. If you hire a car in Denpasar and head north of the square, you will run into the Puri Satria, the royal palace. Also to the north is the historic Jaya Sabha building, or the Governor's State House. If you came here on a cruise, then you have already seen Benoa Harbor a few miles south of the city. The Maospahit temple on Dr. Sutomo Street and nearby Catur Muka Statue is also worth a look-see.
If you want to do some traditional shopping, then head straight for Jalan Gajah Mada. Pasar Badung. It is the central market in Denpasar and is popular among tourists. Jalan Gajah Mada also has plenty of smaller stores where you can buy the same trinkets and traditional clothes.
The white sands of the Sanur Resort 15 minutes east are probably the most famous among all the Bali beaches near Denpasar. If you prefer a surf beach with big waves and pitch black sand, then the Padang Galak beach further ahead of Sanur is perfect for you. As a tourist, you will surely want to visit Kuta with its hotels, restaurants, and pubs. If you are there, then do not miss the Kuta and Legian beaches. The Nusa Dua Resort has some fantastic white sand beaches, and you might also want to stop over at Jimbaran Beach on the way from Denpasar to Nusa Dua. If you are heading to Java by ferry, then you will be going to Gilimanuk, which has the nice Soka Beach and the Medewi Beach a bit further down. If you are looking for dive sites or snorkeling, then you must go to Lovina Beach.
