You have a full day in Seminyak outside the surf camp and don’t know what to do? Isabel shares her favorite spots with you.

One day in Seminyak with Isabel

Well, you can say that the streets in Bali are nothing like those of any other European city. They are crowded with motorbikes and just a few tourists like me who decide to walk around. The sidewalk barely exists, but I’m sure you’ll manage. Hey, it’s a true adventure out there! Be ready for a lot of honking by taxi drivers and bike drivers asking “transport, transport?”, “maybe later?” Honestly, the first day when I stepped out of the camp it was a true jungle for me. But after a while, you just get used to it. Here’s what to do during a day in Seminyak.

Food, food, glorious food

Seminyak is one of the most popular areas to stay, so it has a lot to offer. From very classy restaurants to local warungs. A warung is a small family-owned business, mostly restaurants. If you want to try a true local Indonesian meal, I’ll give you my full recommendation. Seminyak night market is the place to go to try all these national dishes like nasi goreng and mie goreng, then just switch to fresh seafood like grilled prawns and squid. Indonesian people like to eat their food with their hands, and you should give it a try as well. It’s truly a liberating feeling.

Seminyak is really crowded with shops: from handmade bracelets to big shopping malls. I am sure you will find anything you are searching for. Just look around. No matter if you turn left or right, shops are everywhere! Don’t forget to bargain, all fun is in there.

Your day in Seminyak on the beach

The best thing about the location of the camp is the nearby beach. It’s just a few minutes walking distance. It is called Gado-Gado, La Plancha, 66 beaches, Nixoma, Padma… the same beach but divided in different spots. You’ll figure that out the moment you start surfing. Either way, whether you go alone or with friends, you will definitely enjoy it!

Let’s talk about sunsets in Bali… absolutely breathtaking! You can go with friends, buy some beers or a fresh coconut (how cool is it that you can have fresh coconut every day?!) and just enjoy the amazing view. There is a lot of cute bars to listen to live music as well. (You must know that photo of the beach with crazy colorful bean bags and umbrellas? Exactly, that’s the place.)

Seminyak’s cultural highlights

When it comes to culture you must visit Pura Petitenget Temple. It’s an architecturally beautiful and ancient Hindu temple, located at Petitenget Beach. Balinese Hindus believe that the temple is protecting them from the sea. Pura Petitenget Temple has a special meaning to the local community and remains an active place of worship to this day.

And after the beautiful sunset, when the night comes, you can continue your adventure in one of the many fancy bars and night clubs Seminyak has to offer. 

I told you, your day in Seminyak has it all!
