Berawa Beach is situated at Banjar Brawa, Tibubeneng Canggu, about five kilometres from Seminyak. The beach is windy and fairly clean with light brown sand, and is an interesting spot for surfing, meditation, yoga and horse riding. Here, you can witness the daily life of typical fishermen who catch fish from their traditional boats.
Biasa Art Space
Going on its name, Biasa Art Space should be ordinary. However, it really can’t be defined as such. This art centre has been at the front line in promoting young and talented Javanese and Balinese artists of the contemporary genre since 2005, and is where the creative, conceptual and avant-garde can be nurtured and supported. Biasa Art Space usually exhibits artwork of progressive and previously unexposed artists.

There are no sun loungers and it’s almost hard to find hawkers peddling their wares here, so you won’t find the crowds lapping up the rays as in Seminyak or Kuta. The sand is black and hot and the water is not particularly good for swimming but it is good for surfing, especially for intermediate level surfers. Read More...
Double Six Beach, also referred to as ‘Blue Ocean Beach’, is a half-kilometre stretch of golden-white sand that is part of the whole length of Seminyak Beach. The beach connects the northernmost strip of Legian, also referred to as ‘Blue Ocean Beach’ and Seminyak’s southernmost beachfront of The Oberoi Bali resort, which is often referred to simply as ‘Oberoi Beach’. Part of Jalan Double Six (also known as ‘Jalan Arjuna’), one of Legian’s main beach side streets, runs parallel the beach, lined with hip bars and restaurants. Read More...

Located not so far from Berawa Beach, to get here you have to keep going straight until you reach the sign for Echo Beach. This is a favourite beach for more proficient surfers and expats (although swimming is prohibited), as it is virtually deserted and very few vendors make it a peaceful place to relax. Although surfboards can be rented on the beach, most surfers arrive with their own boards. If you are not an advanced surfer, Echo Beach has a small strip of beachside warungs with standard fare and a fancy modern place called The Beach House which serves beer and food in a beautiful location to hang out Read More...

This beach is named after a nearby temple. The grey sand creates a mysterious look and tourists rarely come to visit, but since it’s located in a tranquil neighbourhood, this peaceful beach has become an alternative hideout venue from the crowds where you can swim, sunbathe, jog, meditate or meander along the waterfront before sunset.
Petitenget Temple, referred to as ‘Pura Petitenget’ by locals, is a significant, centuries-old temple in Bali and one of the very few cultural landmarks at the island’s upscale beach resort area of Seminyak. Somewhat overshadowed by the modern developments of lavish five-star resorts in the area, this temple still remains an important highlight and a must-see while in Seminyak, especially during its festive 210-day anniversaries and the traditional dance rehearsals regularly held by the locals in a grand pavilion nearby.
Red bricks and sandstone make up most of the temple’s architecture, giving it an antique feel. Up the dragon staircase is the temple’s vast courtyard, where a dozen different shrines Read More...

Primo Bali Chocolate Factory
This small chocolate factory in Kerobokan, several minutes north of Seminyak proper, produces pure high quality handmade chocolate from locally-sourced cocoa beans. The artisan factory was started by Pepe, a passionate Italian who works closely with cocoa farmers in the island’s central highlands. Enter the small factory and you will be greeted by the amazing aroma of chocolate. A custom-built grinder that he designed sits by, working its way through raw, single origin and seasonal cocoa beans. In fact, the chocolate here is all ‘seasonal’, and the beans are ground at low speed and low temperature, otherwise known as ‘cold processing’, which in turn maintains the full flavour of the chocolate while suppressing its acidity levels. End products that you can sample and purchase here include bars and pure chocolate drops in flavours of plain dark, kaffir lime, orange, chilli, ginger, mace and rosemary. Visitors may arrange for appointments before visiting.

Located on the west coast of the southern region of Bali, to the north of Kuta and south of Umalas, Seminyak Beach is relatively quiet during the day. Its cool, sunny and breezy ambience provides a perfect site for hanging out with your friends, kite flying, sunbathing or swimming – but be sure to check the red flags displayed by lifeguards indicating a ‘No-Swim Zone’ before you jump into the ocean. Surfing in certain areas of the beach is allowed and you can rent surfing boards at the beach for same price as in Kuta. Read More...
