If it’s your first time in Seminyak, it’s worth getting out of your villa or resort grounds, and explore. This classy beach resort area has much to offer. Seminyak has all the highlights of neighbouring Kuta and Legian. However, it outclasses them by having the most number of classy restaurants along its streets.
Seminyak’s beaches are among Bali's most favourite spots to enjoy amazing sunsets. This includes exotic Petitenget Beach. Only a few steps from the beach is a major temple of the same name. After several minutes from here are some of Bali’s best chill out spots. There's Ku De Ta, Woo Bar and Potato Head Beach Club. Here are a few pointers to help you get started.
If we compare Seminyak to neighbouring Kuta and Legian, it’s a world apart. Seminyak Beach offers a splendid stretch of gold to dark sand, complemented by gorgeous sunsets. The coast has become popular with resident expats over recent years. It now has a refined feel to it. You’ll find a stylish scene, with rows of designer boutiques along its main roads. Side streets feature a handful of the island’s best dining venues. World-renowned nightlife and gig venues are around each corner.
