Legian is one of Bali’s most popular beach resort areas where you’re also spoilt with rows of small shops lining its streets. Local souvenir shops and art markets offer a good variety of trinkets and brightly coloured tropical wear. Fashion boutiques line the main Jalan Legian route – a recommended starting point is at the junction of Jalan Melasti, where you’ll also find Mertanadi Art Market.

    The main street is best explored on foot – you’ll easily find yourself popping into one shop after another, each with different sets of items and price tags. Most items aren’t tagged, so be prepared to put your bargaining skills to the test. Below are among the best places to shop ‘til you drop in Legian.

    Jalan Legian is the primary walking street of Legian, the second most popular beach resort area after Kuta. It’s lined with a huge variety of shops, bars, hotels and clubs. In fact, the street forms a long stretch connecting Kuta and Seminyak.

    Several alleys and side streets, including Poppies Lane (I and II) and Jalan Sahadewa (nicknamed 'Garlic Lane') branch off to the beach from this one-way street that runs north to south. Both sides feature footpaths making Jalan Raya Legian, as it’s referred to by locals, or ‘Downtown Legian’ by regular holidaymakers, a great walk for both shoppers by day, and night owls after sunset.

    Connecting the famous Legian streets of Jalan Padma and Jalan Melasti is Jalan Sahadewa, otherwise known as Garlic Lane (after a popular restaurant down the narrow street). Jalan Sahadewa is lined with many small shops selling a huge variety of items, from souvenirs to clothing. Some offer fixed (but reasonable) prices, and others are simply places to put your Bali bargaining skills to the test.

    You're welcome to just enter and have a look, go out and pop into another next door to find one that suits you best. Jalan Sahadewa is best explored on foot despite an absence of decent footpaths, and some parts of the road are quite crammed with parked scooters.
