What to Do in Seminyak Beach
If the dining, shopping and spa attractions of Seminyak don’t quite manage to fill your day then maybe you need to go to the villages of Canggu and its neighbouring Umalas. Just a short drive from Seminyak’s main road, the beach is peaceful and quiet: it’s perfect for an early morning surfing.
The beach from Seminyak and up north to Canggu is also the favoured coast for horseback riding, with the Umalas stables just nearby. A range of notable spa establishments also reside in Seminyak, offering soothing treatments delivered by experienced Balinese therapists.

The Escape Hunt Experience Bali offers a fun time and some good brain exercise for you and your team of up to five, as you put on a Sherlock cap and plaid cape then literally get locked inside a room to solve a mystery – be it a murder, a theft, or a royal family kidnapping. With an LED timer ticking overhead, your wits are put to the test as you must find the hidden clues, solve a series of puzzles and ultimately crack the case in order to successfully ‘escape’ from the room in time.

Need a break from the beaches and shopping? Visit Canggu area, a district that lies midway between Seminyak and Tanah Lot which houses a family club sitting on over 3.5 hectares of land. Centred around a stylish plantation-style clubhouse, it provides a complete family club experience and facilities for hanging out, dining, sports, and leisure for all your family members.
The club is the first in Bali to introduce a professionally turfed and floodlit sports field. Other sporting facilities include a tennis and squash centre with four tennis and two squash courts, a 25-metre swimming pool and a gym and aerobics centre complete with audio visual entertainment. The younger ones will be spoiled for choice with the Splash Park, playground, playroom and den to choose from.

Another way to enjoy Bali’s beautiful scenery is to try horseback riding along the southern beaches and through the lush rice terraces of Kerobokan and up to Canggu for a few hours – accompanied all the way by a professional guide who will put your comfort and safety first. This service is provided by several stables in the area.
The home for international standard horse facilities offers a selection of disciplines and size of mounts to suit your every riding need and to give you a truly enjoyable riding experience. If you are staying in Bali with your loved one, it could be a romantic activity just before sunset.
Over the last few years Bali has become the best spa destination in Asia, and there is a virtually endless range of spa choices in Seminyak so there’s no excuse not to pamper yourself with a rejuvenating Balinese massage, Balinese Boreh or creative signature treatment tailored to your needs by a professional therapist. Every spa facility offers unique treatments that are worth exploring.
A few notable spa facilities stretching along Jalan Raya Seminyak, Kunti and Laksmana that you can experience during your stay are the Moroccan-themed Prana Spa, Chill Reflexology, Espace Spa and Jari Menari Massage Centre (literally meaning dancing fingers, and it’s no wonder the centre won an award for its four-hand massage treatment from Singaporean M Spa Magazine) – where all the therapists are male.
The Samaya and Sofitel Seminyak provide oceanfront experiences, while luxurious spa treatments abound at Luxe Lounge Spa at Sentosa Villas and Studio 5 Spa & Café. Finally, Glo is famous for its nail art service and more affordable spa treatments & reflexology can be found at Soothe.
Surfing in Seminyak Beach
For intermediate surfers who wish to find a quieter beach to enjoy wave riding with fewer competitors, the beaches at Seminyak can be your best possible option. The beach is cleaner than Kuta, there are fewer beachside hawkers and the waves are their best for surfing in the early morning.
