Bali Tourism – Just over 15 years was a different town Seminyak completely separate disconnected from Legian and Kuta. It had a very relaxed atmosphere with a touch of traditional Balinese village life. Today is a different story and certainly Seminyak has become the fastest developing area of Bali. It is difficult to tell where it ends and begins Legian Seminyak.
Seminyak is definitely the higher end market of the city with many trendy restaurants and nightclubs as well as increasing stores, is a paradise for shoppers.
The beach here is a gray expanse of sand that stretches for miles to the north, along the coast, and is ideal for those who enjoy walking. You can literally walk all day on the beach and as you do, you are sure to come across luxury villas facing the sea. A little surfing takes place on this beach and is very easy to rent surfboards on the boys for a reasonable price. Most of the Seminyak beach is dotted with loungers and not difficult to agree on a price for the day. The average cost of these would be between RP30, 000 – Rp50, 000 but of course this depends on how well you can cheaply! Ocean currents in Seminyak are very similar to those of Kuta and Legian so we recommend caution in swimming. Make sure you swim between the flags guards conditioned everyday.
Seminyak has no views backpacker and can be difficult to find an accommodation, however, there are a few losmen Bima strip extending south from the northern end of Jalan Dhyana Pura, right in the heart of Seminyak. Most backpackers would be best to go directly to the nearby Legian and Kuta. Most of what the high-end Accommodation Villas and very up market. If you are lucky enough to be in a town that will surely feel like royalty with a private pool and patio with very attentive staff to help with anything you need on your vacation.
Although not staying in Seminyak is definitely worth a visit Kuta or Legian.
