“Not my favourite beach”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2014

I have to echo the other reviewers and say that the amount of salespeople and their pushy "don't take no for an answer" style of selling really detracted from this beach experience for me. It was impossible to read or nap on a beach chair without being constantly interrupted and begged to purchase something.

It was fun to watch the surfers, but as a person who is always a little nervous around water, I found the current to be too strong and the waves too big for me to venture very far in.

That being said, I did enjoy several of the little beer stops along the way and, of course, the view of the ocean is always beautiful. We only stayed in Legian for 2 days, and I think that was just enough time to see what we wanted before moving on.

“perfect sunsets”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2014

At the moment both the beach and water are very clean. The surf is also great. Bring your boogie board or rent one. Stay for sunset n chill out in a bean bag in front of a beach bar. It's perfect.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2014

I say this with utmost respect, a little bit smelly & dirty compared to Australian beaches. But a must see and do for everyone!

“Too many seller”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2014

big beautiful beach, but with many people that come to annoy you to sell whatever they have or take you around or surf...if I want to go somewhere or do something, I'll ask for it. Otherwise live me alone, please!
But the beach is beautiful
