Show Your Magnetic Catwalk at Stylish Seminyak Beach Area

Seminyak is Bali's most fashionable and opulent beach resort district. The streets are dotted with fine-dining restaurants and fashion boutiques, and it is home to some of the island's most expensive resorts. Scenes along major thoroughfares such as Jalan Petitenget and Jalan Kayu Aya can be fairly diverse.
Petitenget Beach in Seminyak has a private feel to it, especially when compared to Kuta and Legian to the south. After dusk, however, a more vibrant nightlife scene emerges. Many of Seminyak's highlights, including as stylish hotels and first-class beach clubs, have an international following.
Seminyak Beach differs from its southern neighboring beach resort regions, like as Kuta and Legian, mostly in the type of audience it attracts. The tremendous waves that drew vagrant surfers to these south-western coastlines originally made Bali a tourist destination. Seminyak has a beautiful shoreline of gold to black sand, which is accented by stunning sunsets.
The seaside is popular with local expats and has a polished vibe to it, with rows of designer boutiques along the main roads and side streets. Seminyak is home to some of the island's greatest culinary establishments as well as world-famous entertainment venues that host international concerts.

Seminyak General Information
The beach resort area features some of the island's most luxurious resorts and villas, which are surrounded by a plethora of luxury spas and dining options. The Oberoi, which was established during the hippie and surf boom of the 1970s and has now become a landmark, was the first of several luxurious beachfront hotels, the entire north-western end of Seminyak, as well as the road that goes through it, is named after it (officially Jalan Laksmana). The main Jalan Raya Seminyak runs north from Jalan Raya Legian and finishes at Jalan Raya Kerobokan, which is also Kuta's Sunset Road's westernmost end. In the north, Jalan Raya Seminyak splits into three major streets: Jalan Dhyana Pura, Jalan Laksmana, and Jalan Petitenget. Each one has its own particular personality and set of venues.
Seminyak Beach restaurants and food
Jalan Dhyana Pura (also known as Jalan Camplung Tanduk) goes down to the Anantara Resort, which hugs the Seminyak coastline and offers an eclectic row of clubs — predominantly a homosexual bar scene with go-go dancers. Expats affectionately refer to Jalan Laksmana as "eat-street" because of its abundance of excellent restaurants. Jalan Petitenget, farther south, is home to most of the area's renowned institutions, including Potato Head Beach Club and Ku De Ta. Seminyak Beach is made up of three separate coastal strips: Pantai Arjuna (Blue Ocean Beach), which borders Legian, Petitenget Beach, and Batubelig Beach, which is further north. Seminyak, the island's most renowned beach resort region, outshines Kuta and Legian, which are both known for their boisterous beach crowds and low-cost accommodations. Undercurrents are frequently strong, and surfing is mostly for experienced surfers. Horseback riding is a popular sport in Seminyak, with routes running from the Umalas stables in Canggu to Seminyak's Petitenget shoreline and Legian's Blue Ocean Beach region. Sunsets in Seminyak are spectacular, and they're best enjoyed with friends around the elegant poolsides of WooBar at the W Bali - Seminyak, or down on the beachfront lawns of Ku De Ta or the Potato Head Beach Club.
Peti Tenget
Petitenget Temple (also known as Pura Petitenget by locals) is a centuries-old temple that is one of the few cultural icons in Seminyak's premium beach resort. Although it has been overshadowed by the modern developments of expensive 5-star resorts in the neighborhood, this temple is nevertheless a must-see when in Seminyak. The majority of the temple's architecture is made of red bricks and sandstone, giving it an antique atmosphere. The temple's huge courtyard contains a dozen various shrines and small pavilions draped in traditional Balinese checkered cloths, all of which contribute to the temple's sacred appearance. Traditional dance rehearsals are done periodically under a big pavilion nearby during the joyful temple anniversaries. Petitenget Temple's Highlights The smaller Masceti Ulun Tanjung Temple, located next to the big temple, is where local peasants pray for protection (against famine and disease in ancient times). During the 210-day Balinese Pawukon calendar's Merakih Wednesday anniversary celebrations, you'll see Petitenget Temple festooned with flags and parasols, with pilgrims thronging for prayers. It's only logical that such a sight would provide excellent photo opportunities.
How to Get to the Petitenget Temple
Despite its remote setting, away from the rows of Seminyak's glitzy designer boutiques and exquisite bars and restaurants, Petitenget Temple is reasonably easy to reach. From the north, through Sunset Road and Jalan Raya Kerobokan, or from the south, via Kuta and the main Jalan Raya Seminyak, Jalan Petitenget is a half-hour drive from Ngurah Rai International Airport. The temple is located near the main intersection, where the Petitenget restaurant's name is prominently displayed across its white picket fence. On Saturday and Sunday mornings, the great Bale Agung pavilion across from the temple frequently hosts dance rehearsals with young Balinese females rehearsing their routines and gestures. The temple's front is green and well-shaded by enormous old trees, some of which may be as old as the temple itself. At its southern end, Jalan Petitenget, the temple's namesake street, is studded with world-class eating and entertainment establishments and connects to Seminyak's other famed dining streets of Jalan Batubelig, Jalan Kayu Aya, and Jalan Laksmana. The lovely stretch of golden-grey sand at one of the island's most beautiful sunset beaches is only a few meters from the temple and across a wooden bridge.
