You can actually walk from the beach to the airport and board a
plane as a few tourists prefer to spend the extra hour in the water.
When arriving at Denpasar on an international flight you'll walk
into a long hallway to the sound of gamelan music. At times processing
can take a while but when you reach the counter there isn't much
hassle as most of the people coming through are package tourists
and travelers. Another 10 yards or so and you're out into the street
and the humid air hits you. There won't be a shortage of taxis waiting
to drive you to Kuta or wherever you want to go and these are affordable
though it's best to ask inside the airport what the going rate is.
