06 Finest Things to Do in Seminyak - Top 6 Activities to Experience in Seminyak

As one of Bali's most popular beach hotspots, Seminyak offers a wealth of engaging activities for all travellers. Here are six ways to enjoy the sights and flavours of Seminyak during a getaway.

1

Tour the Nyaman Gallery

Whether one is an art lover, a collector or a culture buff, a visit to the Nyaman Gallery is an absolute must for all visitors holidaying in Seminyak. As the area's foremost art institution, the gallery provides a platform for many Indonesian and Balinese painters and artists with its motto of helping budding new voices gain a global audience. As a cultural epicentre of sorts, the Bali art scene centres around this iconic gallery which also highlights a large collection of ceramics, sculptures and wearable works of art. Some of the main attractions include elaborate carvings hailing from East Nusa Tenggara while the oil paintings and the blown glass items are equally impressive.

Dive beneath the Blue

Head down to Adventure Scuba Diving Bali for an underwater excursion of a lifetime as the venue is one of the premier scuba diving hubs where one can also secure a PADI certification. Not only is Seminyak Bali's unofficial diving capital, but the area is also teeming with diving schools and water sports centres where travellers can learn how to dive in a matter of days. Blessed with sunny skies and ideal conditions for diving for most of the year, the rich marine life heritage of Seminyak also makes it the perfect location to take a peek beneath the waves.

Sign Up for a Surfing Safari

Revered as one of Asia's premier surfing Meccas, Seminyak Beach is tailor-made for surfers of all experience levels. Decidedly more low key and less congested than the surfing spots of Kuta, wave riders can let lose among the waves in peace here without worrying about bumping into other water sports enthusiasts. Surfing gear and boards are also widely available on the beach through rental shops while a two-hour surfing lesson is the best way to kick start your surfing journey. Those based at Katamama and any other similar hotel in Seminyak Bali will find that most resorts also offer surfing packages.

4

Have a Cuppa

Regarded as the best coffee house in Seminyak, a cup of teeming hot coffee or cappuccino at Revolver is a rite of passage all visitors must experience on a visit to the area. The intimate coffee stop is not only renowned for its use of exquisite coffee beans but also the plethora of coffee-based beverages in its menu. The food options are equally enticing so drop by for lunch or breakfast or when one is particularly craving a cup of Joe.

5

Pay Homage to Pura Masceti

As one of Bali's most famous temples, Seminyak's Pura Masceti is no ordinary place of worship on the holiday island. This agricultural temple which is primarily a sacred spot for local farmers contains all the hallmarks of Bali's finest temples in both architecture and serene surroundings.

6

Shop at Jalan Laksmana

Often considered among Bali's best retail joints, a shopping spree at Jalan Laksmana is a great way to spend time in Seminyak. Home to big labels and local brands alike, the surfwear, resort wear and accessories available at Drifter or Saba and Mist are simply to die for.
