For part of our 10 night stay in Bali we decided to head to the Southern part of the island to the resort town of Seminyak.
Our sole purpose for doing this was so the girls could get some beach time in and we literally did nothing else other than head to the beach; with the exception of a doctors visit for myself and to stop by a beautiful art gallery to add to our collection!
We stayed in an AirBnB property that was located only 2 minutes away by foot from Seminyak Beach and despite the property being rather basic and almost quirky (and not in a good way) with its super close proximity to the beach it was perfect for our short stay.
Other than the first day where we headed into town to eat we spent most meals at the beach or in our property. Seminyak Beach is lined with various eateries including the famous Potato Head Beach Club as well as La Plancha Beach Bar & Restaurant.
The first time we stepped foot on the beach Matt & I both looked at each other completely overwhelmed; we just weren’t expecting the sheer number of people, beanbags, umbrellas and surfers. Everywhere we turned there were people. Having said that, it still had a very relaxed vibe about it and neither one of us felt like it was too crowded.
In the morning the beach was filled with people running or taking a leisurely stroll, kids playing, visitors taking surf lessons, even people riding horseback. As day turned to night beanbags would take the place of loungers, pretty umbrellas would be set up and live bands would fill the air with tunes; the perfect combination to watch the beautiful sunsets.
I thought I would regret our decision to not explore the area more but honestly I don’t; we knew our month was going to be pretty busy at times and we needed to make time to relax and let the kids just chill and Seminyak turned out to be the perfect place to do that.
