Arrrrh the beach... this is one place we didn’t list on our agenda when planning our trip, as we’re not particularly beach people who spend time tanning ourselves to a crisp! Writing it off completely was a bit harsh and I wish we had made an exception just this once. Still, we managed a couple of hours toe dipping in the coolness of the sea, watching and listening to the great ocean waves, tingling us with excitement and almost sweeping us in, it was a case of “sand on, stress off” after a 17 hour flight! This was bliss...

Seminyak Beach is 10 minutes walk from The Alea hotel, the route is a straight cut through residential area dotted with quaint villas and tropical greenery. The temperatures didn’t hold back, after all it was mid-day when most sun worshippers had crawled back to the luxury of their hotels air con. For us it was great having the beach almost to ourselves. A few local vendors trying to delight us with their wares, friendly smiley people and a polite “no thank you” will suffice. We enjoyed moments of peace and calmness, watching swirls of waves coming in and cooling down our roasted feet from the blazing heat of the sand. The salty sea air and catching an odd glimpse of a surfer conquering a wave added to our fun in the sun.

We spotted crabs popping out from pockets of sand and running into the sea, so well camouflaged. The longer we spent just walking and gazing at the vastness of the ocean my mindset touched senses one can only dream off in paradise, making me feel alive and regaining my sanity. The beach is clean, lined with palm trees gently swaying in the breeze and sand so soft you’ll be leaving picture postcard memories and footprints for others to follow. Bars and restaurants setting up for late brunches, we parked ourselves at a cafe, people watched and took few photos.

We ended our leisurely stroll at a bohemian cafe which looked like one big tropical fruit cocktail, inviting cosy colourful bean bags, low level tables and a signpost with some funky quotes, this was a picture of relaxation, peace and love. The cafe overlooks the ocean where you can get fed and watered enjoying the ambience and I guess a fabulous party vibe in the evening for ‘movers and shakers’, enjoying a few beers and watching an amazing sunset.

Our recommendation: Definitely go for it! all you have to do is press ‘escape’ and you’ll be transported into a world of calmness, ride a wave and let your free spirit run wild, this is therapy on the cheap. Personally for me, I’ll be putting the beach on future trips, after all what’s not to like?....Indu & Versha.

This beach was quite a walk from our hotel but we still made the effort to get there. It is generally clean (although this isn’t the case when the sea has been rough) and it’s long with great sand.

You can rent sun loungers for your visit and there are several bars and restaurants to keep yourself fed and watered.

The sea can get rough and lends itself quite well to surfing and other watersports. There are plenty of people around here who will teach you how to do it for a price.

If you need to get there and back cheaply we used the Grab camp app which was really reliable and very cheap.

Very nice beach. I went in the late afternoon, and it wasn’t very crowded. The beach is very clean, and the water was clear. Nice, relaxing experience. Know that you pay to use the loungers, and there are people selling things like sunglasses and bracelets.

Nice sunsets, but when you look a little deeper, the beach is awash with plastic and ruccish that washes in. There are local dogs patrolling the beach, and while they don't interfere with you, they do leave their calling cards. The locals embrace tourists but the touters are also pests - no such thing as a quiet walk along the beach

Stayed in Seminyak for 5 days. Visited the beach three times and very disappointed with the amount of plastics on the beach..never been anywhere and seen such an amount of plastics from high to low water. Tourists actually walking along picking up all the debris. There are tractors on the beach raking the sand but not picking up and debris. Find it hard to believe that the tourist board/government allow tourists to swim and paddle amongst this filth. The amount tourism brings to Bali then take some of your tourists money and pay local people to pick up the rubbish... the amount of rubbish on the beach depends upon rainfall flooding the rivers and taking it down to settle on the beaches. Anyone going in the sea comes face to face with the rubbish pity help any other unseen nasties are in the water...... expect a tourism tax to be incurred if action taken to clean up.

During my Jan 2020 visit to Bal, we stayed in Seminyak and went to Seminyak each couple of times for the sunsets. Sunsets are beautiful, but it gets crowded and might come in the way of you enjoying a good sunset. the beach is not great for swimming as the waves could be be huge. there are good beach side restaurants where you can enjoy the sunset, like La plancha and Champlung.

Nice clean beach, fine sand, stunning sunset, beautiful to watched the waves going in and out. A scnery we cannot find easly. It was quite when we were there. Lucky us!, to share the beach only with few people. We came here several times during the week and each visit was always stunning. Easy to find place to eat along the beach! Our fav beach so far!

Once you go past Legian beach you are on Seminyak Beach.

There are also some high end hotels on the vicinity and I noted that it was less busier here.

A nice place to have a stroll, popular with surfers and it was relatively clean.

Great place to watch sunset, get some cold ones and chill with your partner. It was almost empty due to pandemic time, but as we read usually its very busy, especially for sunset time. Beach is very long, sand is nice and waves were to too big as in Kuta beach. Definitely will recommend to all my friends!

The beach was a lot nicer than i expected. The water is warm and shallow with a decent surf. You would have to walk out quite a bit to get deep into the water.
The best part about this is the Sunset View, it's absolutely breathtaking.
