The areas with the best nightlife in Bali

Bali’s nightlife is concentrated in the southern tourist areas between the villages of Kuta, Legian, and Seminyak, where most of the nightclubs, restaurants, and tourist bars are located. This area, once filled with coconut palms and rice paddies, has become one of the liveliest nightlife spots in the world, with excellent restaurants, live music, shows and electronic music clubs.

Bali’s nightlife hubs are conveniently close. Seminyak sits 5 kilometers (3.1 miles) from Kuta and less than 6 kilometers (3.7 miles) from Denpasar’s center. Despite this, moving around can be challenging. Taxis or Uber are the safest options; avoid riding mopeds / scooter at night due to common accidents in busy areas.

1. Seminyak

A few kilometers north of Kuta, along the coast, you will find Seminyak, with many seaside bars and restaurants with a refined atmosphere and exclusive nightclubs. The Seminyak area is much more exclusive than Kuta, thanks to the high density of private villas and luxury resorts, and the crowd is mainly made up of upper-class Australians, wealthy Indonesians from Jakarta, European travelers and locals. expatriates living in Asia, with an average age between 25 and 45 years old. During the week, the area can be quiet, especially on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday evenings.

Of course, bars and nightclubs are more expensive, some clubs have a weekend entry fee and a dress code. Most of the lounges and clubs in Seminyak offer stylish interiors and open-air landscapes with lush green lawns and pools lined with loungers overlooking the sea. Some also have poolside bars, serving a range of high quality cocktails, martinis, wines, champagnes and vodkas.

Seminyak nightlife is spread over at least 5 streets: Jalan Oberoi, Jalan Petitenget, Jalan Dhyana Pura, Jalan Double Six and Jalan Batu Belig. Jalan Oberoi is the best street for dining and partying in Seminyak, while Jalan Petitenget offers more stylish venues, including beach bars and restaurants and trendy nightclubs. Jalan Dhyana Pura is famous for having several small gay-friendly bars, while the Batu Belig area near Canggu is quite trendy and less touristy than the rest of Seminyak.

15. Visit the Monkey Forest in Ubud

Right in the center of Ubud is a forest inhabited by monkeys. It is indeed their forests, they are numerous and rule the roost 🙂 In our opinion, this is the best activity visit in Ubud not to be missed!

There is an entrance, but that won’t stop the free-roaming monkeys from coming out of the forest and coming to you if they suspect you have food in your bag.

Admission is IDR 30,000 rupees (€2) for adults and IDR 20,000 for children. Open 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily.

Walk in the forest

The forest is rather large, enough to walk for 1 hour or more in the middle of the monkeys which are absolutely everywhere you cannot miss them. The latter are very intelligent and watch everything that moves to find food. They are not so interested in your glasses or caps but really in the food. If a monkey sees you putting your hands in your pockets or your bag then they will think you have something to eat and will immediately come to you and often help themselves and try to look in your bag.

What to feed them?

It is forbidden to give them peanuts, biscuits … the only food allowed are bananas which you can bring from outside but which the park encourages you to buy on site to help finance the park.

Are monkeys aggressive?

Yes and no. Some are rather calm and others are on the lookout for anything that moves to feed. So if you have to eat they will not hesitate to jump on you. Which is rather amusing but can scare some people off. And indeed to play they can sometimes try to bite you, not very hard but here it is a risk. I’ve been there many times and never had a problem.

16. Visit of the Indonesian Cultural and Heritage Park in Bali: Taman Nusa

Here is a visit that few know and yet is really worth the detour. This cultural park is not even listed in some of the guides at the moment and that’s a shame! So keep reading to learn more about this cultural tour which in my opinion is the best to do in Bali with the Bali Museum in Denpasar!

Visit Indonesia in an afternoon!

This is the slogan of this park which allows you to discover the culture of the different regions of Indonesia in a fun way through reconstructions of monuments, houses…
You will also have a panorama of Indonesia through time, from the prehistoric era until today.

Open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily

Address and contact:
Taman Nusa, Jl. Taman Bali, Br. Blahpane Kelod, Gianyar

17. Visit the Bali Bird Park, which is home to over 1000 different species of birds. 

The Bali Bird Park brings together over 2 hectares: 1000 birds of 250 different species from Indonesia, Africa, Latin America and Australia. It is the largest bird park in Indonesia. During a walk you will cross different areas that recreate the natural habitats of different birds. Throughout the day you will have the opportunity to attend several shows and interactive sessions with the birds to leave with beautiful memories.

Bali Bird Park is where you will find the finest collection of Indonesian birds and species in Africa and North America. An absolute paradise for birdwatchers, the Bali Bird Park is where you can teach your children about species conservation and compassion for birds and animals. Besides the bird park, there is also a reptile park on site. You’ll have to pay a separate fee for the reptile park, but it’s worth it.

18. Hiking

Bali offers some fantastic hiking opportunities that families can enjoy, but it’s essential to choose trails suitable for children. Here are a few family-friendly hiking destinations in Bali:

1. Campuhan Ridge Walk

This gentle and scenic trail near Ubud is perfect for families. The relatively easy path winds through rice fields, lush hillsides, and small villages, providing beautiful views of the surrounding landscapes. It’s a short and manageable hike suitable for children.

2. Mount Batur (Sunrise Trek)

While Mount Batur is more challenging, the sunrise trek is doable for older children or teenagers. Starting early in the morning, this hike offers stunning views of the sunrise over the volcano and Lake Batur, making it a rewarding experience.

3. Tegenungan Waterfall

Although not a traditional hike, the path to Tegenungan Waterfall near Ubud involves a short trek down some steps. The waterfall and surrounding area offer a pleasant setting for families to explore, swim, and enjoy the natural beauty.

4. Sekumpul Waterfall

For families seeking a more adventurous hike, Sekumpul Waterfall in North Bali offers a beautiful trek through lush forests and rice terraces. It’s a longer and more challenging hike, but the stunning waterfall views make it worthwhile.

Welcoming visitors from all walks of life, Bali is understandably a popular destination for LGBT visitors.
