    Great Beach but in poor condition
    The beach itself is great with lots of beach bars, street vendors and nice long boardwalk, nice long beach walks to Kuta or Seminyak. However the conditions last week were quite poor. Enormous amounts of garbage, smelly brown water spots (no idea what that stuff is) and no swimming allowed for the entire week. Not that the water was particularly enticing in the first place. It's really sad to see that such a wonderful natural resource has been run down to such pitiful state. We will not return there unless this gets better.

    Very nice to kick back and have a quiet drink or snack while watching the world go by.
    Legian beach is beautiful with lots of sun lounges with umbrellas and chair/ tables to sit under an umbrella to have food or a drink. These facilities belong to each stall holder up under the trees. When you sit down they will approach you and if you don’t order a drink or something off them will charge you for the use of there facilities. Best to order from them immediately and they will then usually forgo the charge. Lots of beach sellers but not as many as on Kuta beach. If you don’t want to buy anything don’t look at them as they walk by and be quick to tell them no or you will be swamped with sellers.

    Every year there is a new idea on how to improve kuta beach. Some are good like the new skate park,some are okay like the extension of the footpath on the beach side from the main entrance heading in the direction of the beach walk shopping centre which is great for an easier beach walk but where there is erosion stairs ways of sand bags to access the beach and a total look of untidiness. If you really want to stop the erosion replace all the palms that were cut down in the 1970s. Some things are just bad like the new wooden boxes that are meant to separate all the businesses but in reality are just eye sore and destroys the view. You can no longer see the beach clearly from the road and you can no longer see people passing by if your on the beach. If your a regular beach sitter don't expect the lovely Balinese friends you've made to be in the same spot as we found out. We shall see how long this new idea lasts if it manages to survive the first monsoon season.

    Lovely spot to sit and watch the sunset
    Lovely spot to sit on the beach and relax, Sitting having an ice cold drink while watching the sunset is a must do while in Bali. The new beach path and toilet blocks are a welcome addition. One of the things to absorb at the beach is all the hawkers trying to sell their goods, you can relax and the shopping will come to you.

Stayed in legian, never tried seminyak or kuta (for comparison)

Positives: Beer is about $3 a bottle at most shacks which is perfect for having a few watching the sunset. Some nice bars and restaurants with lovely ambience at the beachside hotels which anyone can use, 2for1 cocktails at $12-$14 (very nice too) and your standard cheap Bintang beer for $3 or $5 for a tall bottle. Meals range from $8 for a beer/pizza or $16 for example duck, steak or lamb. Staff are usually incredibly friendly at hotels and don’t tend to try and rip you off.

Negatives:
Beaches are lined with rubbish, went surfing, $5 for 2 surfboards although they will try and charge you $10(1 hour) had a few plastic bags wrap around my arms and legs while surfing for 30 minutes. Beds cost around $5 each to hire with an umbrella, or as usual they will try and charge you more. Be prepared to be approached every 3 minutes by people trying to sell you bracelets, sunglasses, hats, watches ect.

Good: cheap beer, nice sunsets
Bad: overcharging, dirty beach/ocean, struggle to relax due to beach sellers

Our hotel was just across the road from this lovely beach and we spent lots of time on it. It has something for everyone and every time you go there you see something different.

In the daytime it is great for long walks, watersports and sunbathing. Loungers are available to rent for not much money along with umbrellas.

It is lined by small shops and some really good cheap restaurants selling local food. Most of the time the sea is quite calm and very safe but it can get choppy. When this happens, lots of debris is washed up which is a real shame and it’s a pity people don’t take more care of it.

Went here on the late afternoon of the last day of 2019 & come back again in the late evening on that day. In the afternoon, the beach was already quite crowded, but we still can walk on the white sand beach to wait for the sunset. In the late evening, it get even more crowded, with lots of fire works. It was truly a happening place for the new year countdown. We all enjoyed our time here

This beach is much more relaxed and cleaner than other beaches around.
In my opinion not great for for families with children. Too many haglers trying to sell useless stuff for absurd amount of money.
Waves were a bit strong, I don't recommend for casual swim, maybe for surfers it would be more suitable.

Legian beach is a great beach for a swim, surf, long walk or run. You can also get a massage, pedicure souvenirs or anything you desire, It’s a bit quiet through the day at the moment due to COVID but nights are busy with locals. You can always get a cold beer, great sunset and almost any type of food you’re after. Lots of sun lounges and umbrellas for rent all day. Really good beach scene to see.

Legian beach, sitting by the beach ⛱️ without being hassled to buy stuff from hawkers, it's not my cup-a-tea. I didn't enjoy my time there. I wish there is a law, like respecting "No thank you". It's hard work buying stuff if u don't bargain, you get ripped off, if you bargain, never ending backwards and forwards. It's quite tiring.

Came here early 2019 and it seemed okay, returned this year and the beach is way worse with a lot more vendors all the way along it and a 100 times more rubbish on the beach and in the water. No one seems to have control of anything happening on the beach and very ‘sparse’ efforts to clean it up. All of this is a shame as the town offers some great hotels, restaurants and bars and should have a great beach to go with it.
