“Don't expect paradise, but a nice beach”
Reviewed 12 August 2014 via mobile

Come here for the experience of watching the sunset on colorful bean bags with hundreds of other people, and for some decent swimming when conditions are not too rough. However the beach can be pretty annoying too with a lot of commercialization and pollution ...

“Black Sands”
Reviewed 12 August 2014

I was disappointed with the quality of the beach after hearing so much about it…if you can overlook the countless stray dogs and plastic bags and the ungodly odour then I guess you could say its okay. Personally the black volcanic sands don't sit well…nor does the effluent running into the swimming water…needless to say i didn't go for a swim at this beach this trip.

“White sand beach has brown sand”
Reviewed 11 August 2014

The beach in Seminyak tended to be crowded in spots, but it is a nice beach for walking and for dipping into the water. One really can't swim there because of dangerous rip tides. I was surprised that the supposedly white sand was the color of dirt and not the white sand I have found at other beaches. Nonetheless, I enjoyed being on the beach.

“Very clean, tidy and friendly.”
Reviewed 10 August 2014

Shame you can't really swim in the sea but we spent so much time here, it was beautiful and with plenty of little bars to enjoy a drink and some food in.
