Top 5 Things to Do in Seminyak - Enjoy the Very Best of Seminyak, Bali

Enhance your enjoyment and relaxation in Seminyak by experiencing various water sports, watching spectacular sunsets, exploring stunning temples and learning to prepare Balinese dishes.


Water Sports: Surfing, Kitesurfing and Windsurfing

Bali enjoys the benefit of stunning beaches and there are a number of spots around the island that are ideal for certain water sports. When residing in Seminyak, there are three water sports that can be enjoyed with ease, namely, surfing, windsurfing and kitesurfing. These activities are best enjoyed during the dry season which lasts from April to August in Bali because during these times there are ideal wind and current conditions that contribute to making the best waves. Seminyak also hosts a number of surfing schools, so it doesn't matter whether you a beginner or a veteran at surfing.


Spend Quality Time with Family and Friends

The primary objective of a vacation in Bali is to unwind and relax. However, if you are travelling with family or friends, you would also hope to spend some quality time with them. One of the best ways to do so is to try your hand at the Totem Room Escape. Designed as an escape room, the Totem Room Escape requires you to look for clues and solve puzzles in order to escape from the room before the time runs out. It is a wonderful way to bond with those travelling with you.


Enjoy the Sunset at the Beach

Watching the sunset from the beach is an iconic 'Balinese' experience – the beaches are beautiful and the sunsets are often quite memorable. The only way to make it even more memorable is to settle down at a bar with a nice cold drink, preferably a local beer, and watch the sunset from the comfort of a bar. When in Seminyak, one of the best places to this is the La Plancha, a beachside bar located within walking distance of a number of resorts including the Anantara Seminyak Bali Resort.


Explore the 'Island of a Thousand Temples'

The Indonesian island of Bali is peppered with numerous temples and temple complexes. Each of these temples is of religious significance and most of the temples, such as the Uluwatu Temple, are architectural marvels. When you are residing in Seminyak, you can consider visiting a number of local temples such as the Pura Masceti and the Pura Petitenget. These two temples are significant because they are part of a string of temples that were designed to protect the island from evil spirits.


Take a Balinese Cooking Class

The Indonesia cuisine is best sampled in Bali and for those residing in a Seminyak Bali resort, this is an easy endeavour. While many a resort offer cooking classes, tourists can also opt to explore a website called Cookly. This particular website has all the information you need about the cooking sessions and classes that are available on the island. Learning to prepare a traditional Balinese dish is one of the best ways to remember your holiday and a dish such as a grilled chicken satay or a Nasi Goreng on the table at a dinner party is a wonderful way to share your holiday with loved ones back home as well.
