The international airport in Bali is often referred to as Denpasar (DPS is the airport code). Ngurah Rai airport is actually located in Tuban which is two miles south of Kuta beach and eight miles SW of Denpasar.

It’s actually possible to walk from the beach to the airport and board a plane although I’d prefer to spend the extra hour in the water.
Arriving at Denpasar on an international flight you’ll get channeled through into a long hallway to the sound of gamelan music. 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 and you’re out into the street and the humid air hits you. There will be no shortage of taxis waiting to drive you to Kuta or wherever you want to go and these are usually affordable though it’s best to ask inside the airport what the going rate is.
