Jalan Pantai Mengiat is a vibrant shopping street lined with dozens of souvenir and art shops, bars and restaurants on both sides. Located 400 metres east of the state-owned and run Indonesia Tourism Development Corporation (ITDC), the street runs 1.5 km south of Nusa Dua’s hub, parallel with the Bali Collection shopping complex, and ends at Jalan Srikandi in the traditional village area of Bualu.

Shopping on Jalan Pantai Mengiat

The rows of small traditional art shops are similar to those that you’d find at Poppies Lane in Kuta or at the beach art markets of Sanur. Items include batiks and sarongs, shirts with tropical prints, wooden statues, and key chains. Prices vary but in Nusa Dua are generally higher than other areas, but bargaining is very welcome and encouraged.

Padi Art Market is the first shop you'll come across if you start from Bali Collection. This shop offers Bali spa products, batiks, jewellery and handicrafts. Continue along Jalan Pantai Mengiat to find a compact row of art shops at its southern end, which extends to the intersection of Jalan Terompong and Jalan Siligita. There are money changers, spas, warung (food stalls selling local cuisine), tailors and tour kiosks in between.
