Travelling to Bali as a Vegan

Mr. E and I spent a week in Seminyak, Bali during the month of August and it was simply delightful. I thought I would share some of our favourite places to eat out, in case you were planning a trip to Indonesia sometime soon.

Shelter Cafe

Located just off the main street of Seminyak, Shelter Cafe was by far one of our favourite places. Somedays we would eat breakfast there in the morning and then go back for an iced coffee in the afternoon. It does get quite busy, so be sure to head in early if you’re wanting breakfast.



We loved the breakfast burrito and the huge range of smoothies that were on offer. Nalu Bowls is also situated downstairs, which was perfect for our smoothie bowl and fresh coconut cravings. They also serve lunch and have a range of raw desserts on offer.

Mr. E and I love our Indian food, and this restaurant definitely did not disappoint. We ate here a number of times and were pleased with the large range of vegan options available.The food was delicious, with very authentic Indian flavours. A little bit on the pricy side for Bali, but totally worth it.




Sea Circus

Unfortunately we discovered this gem on our last night in Bali. We would have eaten here many more times if we’d known about it earlier. After a week of eating fairly Balinese cuisine, lots of fresh fruit and vegetables, we were craving a classic burger and fries. And that’s exactly what we got here at Sea Circus. Delicious.

Breeze at The Samaya

This was a highlight for us during our stay in Bali.



We decided to enjoy an evening of luxury at The Samaya’s ‘Breeze’ restaurant, with a few sensational cocktails as the sun set over the beach, followed by a two course vegan dinner. It was absolutely delightful. Not cheap, but such a special evening that we will both treasure.



As two vegans who take pleasure in cooking, we spent some of our trip preparing our own meals in the villa. We were lucky enough to have a complete kitchen in our villa, which allowed us to cook a couple of meals over the week. (This is also a great way to save money.)

That’s just a little snippet of our stay in Bali and the places we enjoyed visiting and eating at. I hope this comes in handy if you ever find yourself visiting beautiful Bali!
