When you are only visiting for a short time, you need to make every minute count. So here’s some inspiration on how to spend a fabulous day in the hip hood of Seminyak. Here are our top picks of fun things to keep you busy from sunrise till sunset.
Start the day with a beach walk and a visit to Pura Petitenget Temple. Its central location right off Jalan Petitenget, makes it easy to access from most areas in Seminyak. And if you’re lucky, you might witness one of the ceremonies held in front of the temple for a quintessentially Balinese moment.
Location: Jl. Petitenget, Seminyak
Next, grab your caffeine fix in one of the hipsters cafes in the neighborhood. You can’t go wrong with Seminyak institutions such as Revolver Espresso and Sea Circus to perk up your mornings with designer brekkie, delish coffee and fresh juices. But don’t miss out on the new generation of trendy cafés. Sisterfields serves an all-day breakfast with winning eggs benedict and seriously good coffee. Or order a healthy smoothie bowl from Nalu Bowls, Bali’s first smoothie bowl shack, using only fresh local ingredients and crunchy homemade granola. Yum!
