Travelling to Seminyak With Kids Under the Age of 12?

If you’re planning a holiday to Seminyak with your kids under the age of 12, there are a few things you should do as well as things you should try to avoid doing if you want to make the most out of your experience in one of Bali’s most popular destinations.

Here’s what you should do

Explore the beaches

Seminyak is home to some of the best beaches in Bali, offering fantastic views and plenty of fun activities to enjoy with the kids. From paddle boarding and swimming to beach hopping and surf lessons – there’s something for everyone.

Visit nearby local attractions

There are plenty of unique attractions easily accessible from Seminyak that the kids will love. Make sure to visit to nearby Waterbom Park in Kuta Tuban with rides for all ages, restaurants, a food court and a swim-up bar; Gallery Trick Art 3D in Denpasar – a popular interactive museum featuring vivid 3D art, optical illusions and quirky special-effect rooms, and Bali Bird Park in Gianyar, which is home to 1,000 birds representing more than 250 species in an enclosed aviary.

Sample the local cuisine

When it comes to dining out with the kids, Seminyak offers a wide selection of local restaurants. Warung Made is a great option for traditional Indonesian cuisine and a family-friendly atmosphere. They also serve up a delicious array of vegetarian dishes and tasty desserts. La Lucciola is a beachfront restaurant with a relaxed vibe and a beautiful view of Seminyak and Petitenget Beach. The menu has a mix of Western and Eastern dishes and there are also plenty of options for kids, such as classic pasta dishes and burgers. Finally, there’s Biku, a great restaurant for young families, as it has a dedicated kids’ corner with toys and books to keep them entertained while you enjoy a meal. Biku is renowned for its afternoon teas, but they also serve up delicious meals with a focus on local ingredients and flavours. Plus, the outdoor seating area is lovely and inviting, making it a great spot for kids to play.

Here’s what you shouldn’t do:

Don’t over-schedule activities

While there are plenty of fun and exciting things to do in and around Seminyak, it’s important to be mindful of your kids’ energy levels. Don’t plan too many activities in one day, and make sure to give your kids plenty of time to relax and recharge.

Don’t neglect safety

Even if your kids are excited to explore, it’s important to be mindful of their safety. Make sure to keep them close when in public spaces and keep an eye out for any potential hazards.

Don’t forget the sunscreen!

Seminyak is known for its sunny days, so make sure to pack plenty of sunscreen for the kids. This will help to protect their skin from the harsh rays of the sun, and help to prevent sunburn.

Following these tips will help to ensure your family holiday to Seminyak is as enjoyable and stress-free as possible. So, make sure to also plan some downtime for the kids, and enjoy the amazing sights, sounds, and flavours that Bali has to offer.
