About

Twenty minutes from the airport and just north of Kuta, Legian is a trendy and bustling town that is only slightly more laid back than its wilder southern neighbor. Not as chaotic as Kuta, and not as expensive as Seminyak, Legian is a comfortable place to stay if you’re looking to explore Kuta, Legian, Seminyak, and the western coast.

Pass the time in Legian by hitting up the markets for some shopping. Visit small shops and discover traditional Balinese souvenir bargains at the Merta Nadi Art Market near the beach by Jl Melasti. If you’re partied out or tired from all the adventures you’re having on the island, indulge in a massage in a spa or by the beachfront while watching fellow tourists stroll along the sandy beach. When the sea calls, go for a swim or try your hand at catching a cruisy glassy wave with surf lessons offered on the beach or at a shop like the Rip Curl School of Surf. Lounge and soak up the sun with a refreshing drink in hand by the gold and silver sand beach of Legian’s most famous stretch of beach, Double Six Beach, or jump right into a spontaneous game of beach football or volleyball and move to your choice of beach clubs along the coast as the sun goes down.

If you’re looking to wind down with a nightcap, stop at 101 Rooftop and ease into a slow night at this laid back rooftop bar. Night owls in search of evening festivities can head towards Yolo Bar, where karaoke and a vast array of flavored vodka and beer can kickstart the night. For something more upbeat, Eikon on Jalan Legian 170 is the place to let loose to energetic dance music and the occasional live performance. For the hardcore partygoer, Trip Guru suggests Jenja Club, a two-floor club with a range of house, electronic, or hip-hop and a different DJ every night. As your night ends and you head home, remember to stay aware of your surroundings and keep away from shady characters in this commercialized area.

Riding a Blue Bird Taxi is an option to get around, but the best way to get to know Legian is by walking its restaurant and shop-lined streets.
