Where Can I Eat?
You are spoilt for choice when it comes to food in Legian, you can opt for the street food or play it safe and go to the one of the many restaurants. It is very easy to find a place to eat. Whilst we have our favourite places to eat, we also like to explore new places each time we visit.
Moo Moo’s is definitely our favourite place to eat, yes we love the satay chicken!! Uncle Norms is also one of our favourites and where we spend a lot of evenings listening to the local bands and making new friends. It is an awesome place for all ages to sing, dance the night away whilst enjoying a Bintang or two.
If you love shopping there are lots of markets that line the streets. Have your negotiating skills ready to snap up your new purchase. Some stores have fixed prices however, in the majority of the stores/markets you are required to haggle for the price.

About Legian Beach
The Legian Beach is just a 5-10 min walk from the hotel where we stayed. Legian Beach is a wide beach with loads of sun lounge chairs and guys with their eskies selling Bintang Beer or other cold drinks. The sun lounge chairs belong to these guys so if you are purchasing drinks from them you can relax on their sun lounges as long as you wish. However if you are not purchasing drinks from them then a small fee would be negotiated for the use of the sun lounges. It’s a great place to relax and watch the sunset.
There are dedicated areas where you can swim which are monitored by life guards. The beach is a great place to learn how to surf, there’s plenty of Balinese that have their surf boards ready to give you a lesson or two.
Whilst waiting for a wave to come in you can watch the aeroplanes landing and taking off in the distance at Denpasar Airport.
Perhaps you just want to sit and relax and soak up the atmosphere. The beach is a great place for all ages and is very popular with both tourists and locals.
