1. Walk Along The Beach
Feel the sand and water in between your toes, this is one of the ultimate ‘holiday’ feelings. Being a beach destination it may seem obvious but needs to be said. The beach changes in feel the further north you walk, if you can, try and walk up to Batu Belig.
2. Relax On The Beach With A Sunset Drink
While we are still in beach mode, may as well stay for sunset. Seminyak knows how to sunset. This is when Seminyak beach really comes to life. Locals and visitors all flock to the beach and the atmosphere is great. There are so many amazing places to have a sunset drink in Seminyak so you can pick a new place each night ;). This is one of the best things to do in Seminyak at night, at least to start the night.
3. Spend The Day At A Beach Club
Beach clubs are done right in Seminyak. There are a few to pick from. If it is your first time to Seminyak and you feel like a beach club day, Potato Head or Ku De Ta are iconic picks. Think pool, cocktails, great food, beach and beats.
