Legian Beach is a big stretch of sand that extends north of the famous Kuta Beach and ends at the beginning of Seminyak Beach. Set between two of Bali’s most renowned beaches, Legian is a cross between Kuta’s surfing paradise and Seminyak’s nightlife scene.
It’s an excellent recreational place, with clean seas and streets dotted with stores and cafés. Legian offers the same quick access to shops and bars as Kuta, but with a slightly more tranquil and less wild vibe. It’s a small neighborhood where you can still enjoy Kuta’s affordable pricing without the fuss. On Saturday and Sunday nights, the beach is densely filled with visitors, expats, locals, and tourists of course.
Legian is densely packed with shops selling anything from high-end brand surf wear to Balinese trinkets. Covering Legian’s major retail district will not take long. It comprises Jalan Melasti, Jalan Padma, Jalan Werkudara, and Jalan Arjuna, which all run parallel to Jalan Legian on the beach side.
The Legian surf breaks are perfect for beginners trying to catch their first white water waves, before moving towards catching the unbroken waves at Kuta.
