LEGIAN

Legian is tourist beach town in south western Bali and is a part of Badung regency. Wedged in between Kuta and Seminyak, Legian is packed full of hotels, restaurants, clubs, bars, shopping, and massage parlors. Padma and Double Six Beaches in Legian are popular surfing spots amongst more beginner-level surfers and are favorited for sunset and drinks. You’ll find Bintangs aplenty in Legian. After Kuta, Legian has got to be one of the areas most packed with tourists in Bali because of its proximity to the airport and all of its nightlife.
