What used to be a remote village has been developed in recent years to include many charming villas and bungalows available for holiday rentals. The stretch of beach at Canggu is a very popular surf spot with often dramatic waves crashing on the shore. Sunsets here are particularly spectacular and can also be enjoyed while dining al fresco at one of the seaside restaurants.
Kerobokan is a sprawling traditional village with well-appointed villas hidden away in quiet lanes. Both Canggu and Kerobokan are about a 20 minutes drive from Seminyak and besides offering lovely views over pastoral rice fields they are a pleasant areas to go home to after enjoying busy Seminyak.
Called the trendiest spot in south Bali, this sea front village is a world on its own! Hip and stylish, with great shopping opportunities that include high-end boutiques, numerous spas and beauty salons with treatments designed for your well-being, local and international restaurants, bars and a legendary clubbing scene.
A marvelous long and flat stretch of beach invites you to sunbathe and enjoy the sunsets at various high-end beachfront establishments. Good surf too and less crowded than the Kuta -Legian area!
Ideal for a family holiday is Sanur, a coastal stretch of beach close to Bali's capital Denpasar in the south-east. It is a more up market and quieter alternative to Kuta if you come to Bali for sun and fun.
At low tide the white sand beach is vast and shallow, and at high tide excellent for swimming. A variety of water sports are available, with equipment to rent.
