Seminyak has become one of the most commonly visited places in Bali, but it still lacks as many attractions as other popular areas. The resorts here are the main reason for visits, but the village itself does have a few interesting places to go and there are always beaches to enjoy in Seminyak.
Seminyak Beach is the most popular resort destination in the area and the beauty of its main beach is part of the reason for its appeal. Semniyak Beach offers a number of fun things to do, including horseback riding, beach games, or surfing. However, the surfing here is best left to very experienced riders, because there is a strong undercurrent here. If you are looking for a more relaxing time, simply hang out with friends at one of the beachside or resort restaurants or enjoy a great sunset.
Echo Beach is loved by advanced surfers, who appreciate the excellent reef breaks and beautiful vistas. Another ideal sunset spot in Bali, Echo Beach is fitted out with some beachside dining venues with relaxed atmospheres and plenty of seafood. The beach itself is lovely and is well-suited to walks and sunbathing. Clean, pretty, and relaxed, Echo beach on Jalan Pantai Batu Mejan may be the perfect place for you in Seminyak.
Not far from Jalan Laksmana on Jalan Drupadi 88B, Kendra Gallery offers visitors the opportunity to see some great artwork in Seminyak and even talk with the artists themselves. Most works are paintings done by local and other Indonesian artists. It’s a quiet and peaceful area perfect for browsing and relaxing. The gallery has its own courtyard garden complete with a lily pond.

Beautiful sunsets and lovely architecture are the highlights of Pura Petitenget, located on Jalan Petitenget and right next door to the beach that also bears this name. This temple was built centuries ago and is accompanied by a smaller temple called Masceti Ulun Tanjung. This is the only real cultural destination in Seminyak and is definitely worth visiting.
