Legian holidays offer you the perfect combination of relaxing at the beach before enjoying a fun evening out. Nestled between Kuta and up-market Seminyak, Legian boasts a mile-long stretch of golden beach and is a prime spot if you fancy going surfing. The resort is one of Bali’s nightlife hotspots and is a paradise for party goers, with its thriving bars and clubs.
By day, sunbathe on the soft sands of Legian Beach and cool off in the azure ocean. With its westerly winds during the dry season, the waters here are ideal for surfing as they boast impressive swells. The Rip Curl School of Surf offers lessons if you’re a novice. You can visit the lively Waterbom Park in nearby Kuta for adrenaline- pumping water slides too. Shop at stalls selling local handicrafts, or head to nearby Beachwalk Shopping Centre where you can find well-known international brands. Don’t miss the spectacular sunset before you take advantage of Legian’s stellar nightlife. There’s loads of places to choose from, including laidback waterfront bars and multi-storey clubs like the renowned Engine Room. You can also feast your eyes on the panoramic views at the rooftop lounge of Sky Garden.
