Seminyak Diary

My husband and I stayed in Seminyak for 4 days on our trip to Bali, with so much to do in Bali we only got spent one day to fully explore Seminyak, from food to partying, activities to shopping we got it all covered. Have a look..


Try surfing. SO MUCH FUN! It was my second time surfing but somehow my husband managed to become a pro (of the small waves 😉 ) on his first lesson. We did an early morning surf lesson with a local school, 1:1 training with Junior Buddy (Putu Hanky Junior, I think I’ve got that right). You can find him just under KU DE TA on the beach for a nice 1.5 hour session. We paid 600K for 2 people.



We built up a huge appetite for breakfast post surfing and chose to binge at Revolver Espresso, a super chilled cafe. Everything was amazing, you must try the Smith & Wesson and a tiramisu pancake thing (pictured below,can’t remember the name). The waffle fries are yumm!


Nalu bowls and living stone are more breakfast places you must try in Seminyak.

After stuffing ourselves we thought of walking along the street and indulge in some shopping. We started out with the Seminyak flea market which is my opinion was really disappointing and overpriced. We are not huge fans of shopping but wanted to pick up some local stuff, the main road following revolver espresso has some nice boutique shopping but we loved the street just outside our hotel: Legian Kelod St. which had more decor shops compared to clothing. One particularly nice shop was Himaya Art, a tiny shop selling sea shell with woven handicraft like cushion covers, bags, pouches and really cute stuff. We wanted to pick up everything! There are really nice macrame shops selling pot hangers on the street too. At the Seminyak end there’s a store called Toko Emporium selling cool tropical themed stuff. Kim Soo is a stunning home store with a cute cafe, it is by far the best and most reasonably priced boutique store in Seminyak. Here are some of things I picked up..

For me, a trip is never complete without a visit to a local supermarket and there is a huge Bintang supermarket at Legian Kelod St. We picked up local snacks for our flight home and obviously bought some spicy sambal, it was a must!


Seminyak has tons of nice places to eat, we loved Earth Cafe, a vegan fav with an organic store. Mama San is another treasure, they had a vegetarian menu, yayy! Shelter (pictured below) is a chic rooftop above nalu bowls. For desserts, try Gelato Factory, great for midnight ice cream cravings 🙂


Where to start? We loved La Placha and Motel Mexicola the most, they had the most fun vibes! Bar crawl along the main street, Bali has amazing cocktails and Bintang is always there to save the day! Potato Head and KU DE TA are really nice beach clubs but we found them a bit crowded for our liking, maybe because we chose a Saturday night.
