Once upon a time Petitenget Street was a simple dirt road winding through rice fields but it’s a different story today. This street is now bursting with great shops, world-renowned beach clubs and fabulous restaurants and cafes. There’s something for everyone!
Bali’s iconic Potato Head Beach Club (pictured) is a great spot that will keep both parents and kids entertained all day long. Speaking of icons, you can’t miss a visit to Ku De Ta, especially on a Sunday morning for their special kids section with crafts and entertainment. Another all time favorite is high tea at Biku, with the children’s version being both great value and beautifully presented.

It would take you weeks to eat your way through every restaurant on this strip but some of our favourites include the high-end eateries Sarong, Sardine, and Metis. For inspired Indonesian cuisine with a twist, visit either Merah Putih, or Bambu. Kids love Taco Casa, where they serve good, healthy Mexican fare. They can don a bib and get down and dirty at The Holy Crab or enjoy ribs and a pulled pork burger at the Smokehouse Authentic Texas Barbeque. The W Hotel does a fantastic Sunday brunch where you and the Little Ones can graze for hours on the incredible buffet or Jemme offers up a good old fashioned roast every Wednesday and Sunday.

Petitenget is home to the beautiful and sacred Pura Petitenget, where you will often find locals performing traditional Hindu ceremonies. Petitenget's name itself means "magic box", a treasured belonging of the legendary 16th-century priest who refined the Balinese religion and visited this site often. Mark your calendars for the October 26, 2016 festive traditional celebration, as the temple is renowned for its anniversay celebrations!
