In all seriousness, this is actually what it's like throughout the whole stretch. But ironically it's also lined up so you can walk on one side of either rubbish so you don't have to step on all those gunks.

Further down towards the other end of Kuta Beach, more outdoor restaurants, pubs and cafes have beany bags and even outdoor gigs. © Evan Hwong Photographs

The further away from the main entrance (I think I'm down at the 4th km) there's lesser people and you get to feel more intuned to your surroundings. © Evan Hwong Photographs

Closer towards the end of Kuta Beach and onto Seminyak Beach, the activities changed from beach parties to fishermen casting out their nets... © Evan Hwong Photographs
