Seminyak is basically 2 streets – Jalan Dyana Pura known as the gay bar strip and next to that but too far to walk is Jalan Laksmana known as the restaurant strip (see gay map).A taxi from any bar to any restaurant or vice versa will never cost you more than a couple of dollars but most people have their own mopeds to scoot around on which is great fun and reasonably safe so long as you don’t go too fast.
Along the Bar strip (see map) you will find Mixwell which has a drag show most nights and is especially busy on Fridays and Saturdays .If you really want to see the sights and make the most of your time, a well organised tour is a good choice.The budget-friendly bemo is Bali’s main public transportation and every town has a bemo or bus station.But do remember to pay the fare before getting off so as to prevent the bemo driver from driving off with your change.It is normal to be charged extra for a large bag and also for a bemos to depart only when the vehicle is full – even though this can take quite a while.Whether you’re looking for gay-friendly accommodation, shopping, massages or places to eat, drink or dance the night away, Bali Gay Guide has it all.
The long runnning Calego Gay beach has gone – taken over by a massive hotel development so we now have a new gay beach Called Cantina Beach which really isnt that much further north along the sand but its abit trickier to get there by bike than what Galego used to be. Although not exclusively gay it is very Gay-popular.
New years eve is always a great night with parties everywhere.
Do not even think about buying, taking or talking about any type of drugs in Bali because besides the fact that they are no good, the penalty if you are arrested is DEATH!!!
It can be fun at times but could suffer in comparison to say for example, what Ibiza has on offer gay folk as far as partying is concerned.
Bali is more about the nice people, the culture, the shopping, the beaches, the weather, the great food and the cheap prices for everything.
To get there by bike or taxi Travel along the main seminyak oberoi road past kudeta, potato head and W hotel and continue on the road as it winds around away from the beach.
