Legian is a suburb of Kuta located north of the main resort. Offering a more laid back alternative to the main resort of Kuta it is still close enough that all the facilities of the main town are close at hand. The beach at Legian is a quieter place with more gentle surf than Kuta, making it perfect for swimming and novice surfers, on the weekend evenings the beach area comes alive with beach parties and live music, popular with locals and tourists alike.
All though slightly off the beaten track Legian is really only a short distance from the main centre of Kuta and for those looking for quiet days but entertainment during the evenings the resort of Legian couldn't be better. A number of restaurants can be found in Legian while the main bars and clubs are all located near Kuta.
Legian is situated perfectly for holiday makers to explore the island of Bali and all it has to offer, why not visit the monkey sanctuary, or the town of Ubud just to the north which is famous for its market and handicrafts. Also worth a trip during a holiday to Legian is the town of Celuk famous within Bali for the manufacture of silver and jewellery, the perfect place to pick up a souvenir.
