Seminyak Bali today is Bali’s up and coming fashion, dining and accommodation precinct, an upmarket coast enclave just north of Legian and Kuta. Situated some 10 km from Denpasar, the capital city of Bali, Seminyak stretches from Double Six Street in the south and morphs to the village of Kerobokan and Umalas, north of the Pura Petitenget temple. Even though it might be somewhat challenging to stipulate where exactly Kuta, Legian or Seminyak start or end, but one thing is apparent: Seminyak is undoubtedly in a class all of its own. The air here was considerably more complex and laid back compared to Kuta, while the beach mainly is relatively quieter throughout the day.
Seminyak is a part of the first west shore conurbation in South Bali and visitors may get very congested at times. By Legian and Kuta, the Legian Street runs parallel with the beach, and at its limit carries on as Seminyak Street. You may also get to Seminyak through the eastern bypass of Sunset Street. This is nearly always the faster path from Kuta and Legian to Seminyak, even though it’s further space wise.
