Destination guide

Where luxury travellers and backpackers converge

Consistently popular among luxury travellers and backpackers alike, Indonesia offers an alluring combo of dramatic scenery, ornate religious temples and monuments, and white-sand beaches. These beaches in particular lure so many visitors from around the world, securing Indonesia's reputation as a dream honeymoon destination and holiday escape. Legian, a suburban area on Bali's southern coast, offers stunning beaches, a quiet, low-key setting and an easy trip into nearby party-centric Kuta. Browse Legian vacation rentals, and prepare to fall in love with everything Indonesia has to offer.

Things to do

In the unlikely scenario the outdoor scenery starts to bore...

The entire island of Bali is chock-full of museums and cultural attractions well worth your time. In and around Legian, you'll find the Museum Kain, showcasing Indonesian batik cloth, as well as the Le Mayeur Museum, dedicated to Adrien-Jean Le Mayeur's works and personal collection of Balinese art and artifacts. The kids in your crew may enjoy the Dream Museum Zone Bali, showcasing 3D optical illusions and "trick" art practically made for selfies. The iconic, cliffside Uluwatu temple is about an hour south of Legian, and also not to be missed.


Find your zen among the stunning scenery

Whether you book an ojek (motorbike taxi) or a bemo (minibus) or choose to go for a hike through the jungles, Legian is best explored with a local guide. Tour the rice paddies, laze on the southern coastal beaches or snorkel among colourful reefs. Legian, like much of Bali, is the perfect spot to practise your yoga, with plenty of options for lessons. Nearby Kuta is known for its nightlife, festivals and bar scene, offering a lively escape from sleepy Legian. Consider Legian vacation rentals set along the coast, and prepare to spend most of your days in and around the water.


Plan for it to be either wet season or dry season

Bali is known for experiencing 2 seasons: dry and rainy. Temperatures tend to be consistent throughout year, but expect humidity and precipitation to change. January through April and October through November are considered the low seasons, so if you're looking for a bargain and don't mind a bit of rain, this an ideal time. May through June and September are Indonesia's shoulder seasons, when Legian vacation rentals are moderately priced, but the weather is more pleasant than in the off-peak season. High season happens in July, August and December, and it's best to plan your holiday well ahead of your arrival.

Natural highlights

A dreamy escape from reality, right at your fingertips

Bali's diverse geography is a major draw for many, thanks to white-sand beaches, verdant jungles and bustling cities. The decidedly suburban Legian is a dreamy escape from the chaotic Kuta, and offers a mix of calm waters and rugged beaches perfect for surfing. From Legian, you can hop on a boat to nearby islands, such as Nusa Lembongan. But no one would blame you if you prefer to soak in the sun on the area's beaches, all framed by lush rainforests. Ubud's iconic rice fields are about an hour north, and well worth a peek.
