Surfing in Bali has been on our travel bucket list, and those waves did not disappoint. The clubs at night were “bangin” (according to my boys), and each day was a version of wake up, surf, eat local food, relax, enjoy the nightlife, repeat.

Here are six best things to do in Seminyak, Bali

Bali is known to be a surfer’s paradise, as the beaches in Seminyak offer consistent and beginner-friendly waves year round. My boys have been dying to surf here and our mornings were spent with them selecting the perfect surf spot.

Then hubby and I would set up on a sun chair (which the locals are happy to rent you for $3 for 2 hours) and bask in the sun. The laid-back atmosphere and gorgeous scenery makes it the perfect spot for relaxing, swimming, stand-up paddling, surfing and people-watching. There are plenty of surf shops along the beaches to easily get equipment and lessons if you need it.

Exploring Seminyak at night is a blast. The streets come alive after dark and are filled with music, street food, and vibrant energy.

They were able to enjoy the fun club scene with their toes in the sand, and mingle with people from all different cultures.
