Bali boasts some of the best Beach Clubs in the world. Most of them can be found facing the Indian Ocean just north of Bali’s airport, near the towns of Seminyak and Canggu. Another region with fancy ocean-front Day Clubs is Uluwatu, however often they are on a cliff, so while you can view the ocean, its hard to reach the actual beach!
We believe visiting a Beach Club is a must-do during any Bali honeymoon or vacation as a couple. We have been living in Bali for over 5 years and have visited many, sometimes together as a couple and sometimes with friends. Below are our favorites.
1. El Kabron (Uluwatu)North of Uluwatu
Its on a cliff, so technically not a beach club, but otherwise El Kabron checks all the boxes. It overlooks the Indian Ocean on a spot with great sunset views, has a large infinity pool and relaxed seating surrounded by beautiful palm trees. All in all, the atmosphere here is really amazing and perfect for couples.
Food at El Kabron is Spanish-inspired. If you love authentic tapas and seafood, you'll have a great time here. To enjoy a day bed here you will need to spend at least 1 million rupia (around 65$).Official Website
2. KU DE TA (Seminyak)Seminyak
Kudeta is the Indonesian word for coup d'état, an attempt to overthrow a government. The Ku De Ta beach club in Seminyak is very peaceful however. It is one of the most well known beach clubs in Bali, right in front of Seminyak beach. A large daybed, good for 2-3 people, can be booked in advance on their website for 2.4 million rupia, a large part of which is returned in credits which you can use to order cocktails or food.
In some beach clubs, food is not so great: people will come anyway for the views. Ku De Ta is different, here the food is of excellent quality. You can have a full dinner here, including wood-fired steak, but also order small dishes to enjoy while watching the sun set into the Indian Ocean (Ku De Ta is greatly positioned to watch sunset). We recommend trying the octopus or the tuna tartar.Official Website
3. La Brisa (Canggu)Canggu
La Brisa is hard to describe as its a very unique place. Its a bunch of simple wooden buildings surrounded by palm trees and with a pool in between. But somehow it all fits perfectly together, making it our favorite spot to hang out in Canggu, especially as the sun is setting. Food here is excellent as well, we love their poke bowl.Official Website
The amount of sunbeds and relaxed seating options here is limited compared to some of the other beach clubs. They have a lot of bean bags on the beach but they fill up fast. In any case, it is a very nice place to escape from the bustle of Canggu for a few hours - especially during sunset times.
4. Palmilla (Uluwatu)East of Uluwatu
Melasti Beach in South Bali is one of our favorite beaches, as it has beautiful white sand bordering a crystal blue ocean that is great fun to swim and play in due to the playful size of the waves. Palmilla Beach Club can be found right on this beach.
Palmilla features a large pool and luxury sunbeds. Food and drinks here are simple but decent. Entrance fee is around 10$ for general seating, but a higher minimum spend is required to enjoy the nicer options like the gazebo's. Do note you won't catch sunset here as it is facing south.Instagram
5. Potatohead (Seminyak)Petitenget, North Seminyak
Potato Head is more than a beachclub: it is a creative village by the ocean where music, art, design, food and wellness come together. It is located in Petitenget, the area on the north side of Seminyak where many fancy beach clubs are. The beach club features an infinity pool and often has a DJ playing in the late afternoon. Many restaurants are available at Potato Head, but you can also order food right to your daybed.
While its possible to reserve a daybed at the beach club, most spots are first-come first-serve. The beach club opens at 9AM and fills up fast, so its worth showing up early. No entrance fee is charged, however in order to claim a bed at the beach club a minimum spend of 500.000 Rupia is required.
We love Potato Head because its very artistic. The facade of the main building is designed from thousands of recycled wooded windows, creating a colorful vibe. Upon entrance you will walk past the 5000 Lost Soles piece of art, a colorful arrangement of flipflops found on Bali's beaches. Couples love taking selfies between all the art that can be found at Potato Head.Official Website
6. Single Fin (Uluwatu)Uluwatu Cliff
Not exactly a beach club, Single Fin is right on top of the cliff of Uluwatu. However we like to visit Single Fin for their cocktails, especially during sunset. Uluwatu is known as one of the most challenging surf spots in the world, and from Single Fin you have an excellent view over the waves and experienced surfers during the day. At night there are often parties.
Recently Single Fin opened a pool area, making it an even more desirable place to hang out for a couple of hours during the day. Do note that around sunset the place usually gets very crowded. Tip if the crowds get too much for you: for sunset you could walk down into the cave below the cliff if its high tide.Official Website
7. The Lawn (Canggu)Canggu
We love The Lawn. Very relaxing beach club right at the end of Batu Bolong, overlooking Canggu's black sand beach. During the day The Lawn is a calm beach club, but at night its one of the most popular places for nightlife. The Lawn offers views of the ocean with quite large waves - you can often watch surfers from here.
The extensive menu caters to diverse preferences with high quality food. We can confidently recommend this spot not just for its stunning ambiance but for the culinary escapade it offers.Official Website
8. Woobar (Seminyak)Petitenget, North Seminyak
The Woobar is part of W Bali, a luxury hotel with a futuristic entrance that will impress any visitor (we felt like we walked into a James Bond movie). The beach bar area features a pool inspired by Indonesian rice layered rice terraces overlooking the Petitenget beach in Seminyak with the Indian Ocean in the distance.Official Website
You can book a daybed (which fits up to 4 people) in advance via their website. This requires a minimum spend of 2 million rupia (roughly 130$) for the group as a whole. While food at the Woobar is decent, we believe the drinks are at another level. Definitely try some of their cocktails. Adventurous couples might want to give their zero-waste cocktails a try: its where Woobar aims to reduce leftover ingredients as garnishes and ingredients to create some unique drinks.
9. Azul (Seminyak)Legian, between Seminyak and Kuta.
A bit of a hidden gem. Azul Beach Club can be found on the second floor of a bamboo building right across the street from Legian's beach, between Seminyak and Kuta. This might not classify Azul as a beachclub in the most literal sense, as it is separated from the beach by a set of stairs and a road. However we think it still is a great option to spend a couple of hours relaxing, so we have included it in this overview anyway.
From the bamboo building you can overlook the Indian Ocean. Azul features a large pool and several cozy seating options, which unfortunately cannot be booked in advance, except for the premium cabana. A minimum spend of 250k rupia (around 18$) per person is expected. A nice feature of Azul is the relaxing whirpool.Official Website
10. Finns (Canggu)Berawa near Canggu
Great beachclub in the Berawa area of Canggu. Finns is one of the oldest beach clubs in thea area, is probably the most well-known club in Canggu, and has expanded a lot lately. While they still have the original beach club with bamboo bar and ocean-facing pool, there now are new Finns VIP and Finns Beach Party areas. These are more spacious and feel more premium. Finns is great for those who like to party: often a DJ is playing even during the day, and at night often parties are organized here.
Finns is popular, and can sometimes feel very crowded. Definitely book your sunbeds in advance. A single-person daybed normally requires a minimum spend of around 85$ dollars, but cheaper options are available if you arrive before 2PM and outside of weekends.Official Website
11. Infinity Beach Club (Seminyak)Seminyak
The Infinity Beach Club is a serene place with a large pool facing the Indian Ocean. Don't expect loud music here, this place stays pretty calm all day. But it is a great spot to take picturesque photos. Kids are not allowed at this infinity pool area, making it a great choice for couples on a honeymoon.
While it is part of the luxury Seminyak Hotel, non-guests can book a sunbed online. A day pass costs 500k rupia per person (roughly 33$), a large part of which can be used as credit for food and drinks.Official Website
12. One Eighty (Uluwatu)East of Uluwatu
One Eighty is a clifftop day club with a scary glass-bottom sky pool stretching 6 meters over the cliff, allowing couples to get an amazing view of the Indian Ocean and green cliffs of South Bali. Great relaxing vibes and beautiful sceneries.
Admission is roughly 35$ per person, of which most can be spend on food and drinks. If you are up for a fun combination: part of the same complex is fine dining restaurant The Cave, a romantic underground tasting experience.Official Website
13. Cafe del Mar (Canggu)Berawa near Canggu
Made famous in Ibiza, now in Bali too. Cafe del Mar is a modern ocean-front beach club between Canggu and Seminyak. This is one of the more higher end beach clubs in the Canggu area. Daybeds (good for up to 6 people according to the website, but we believe that would be tight, they're better for couples) start at 1.5 million rupia (around 100$) minimum spend.
Service here is really top-notch, and the food is first-class too. They have great oysters as well as many cocktails to choose from. Cafe del Mar is, due to its steaper pricing, often a little less crowded than some of the other beach clubs in Seminyak and Canggu. One thing to note is that there is a river floating between the beach club and the actual beach, making it hard to enjoy the beach itself.Official Website
14. Atlas (Canggu)Berawa near Canggu
Atlas Beach Fest claims to be the largest beach club in the world, and we would not be surprised if this is actually true. This massive new development can be found on the Berawa side of Canggu. The big facade of the building through which you enter the premise is an adventure in itself. Once inside, many shops, restaurants and pools can be found. The club is well positioned to enjoy the Bali sunset.
We'll be honest, as we don't think this is the most romantic place. But if you would like to experience the largest beach club in the world: go for it! Most people book a daybed in advance. A nice feature is that when you book these in advance on the website, you can choose the exact spot where you'll be seated. All rupia spend towards your reservation can be used for food and drinks. But even without a daybed you can enter Atlas Beach Club, you will just be charged roughly 15$ each for entrance. After dark, you can enjoy another record-breaker: the Atlas Super Club is the largest nightclub in Bali.Official Website
15. Klapa (Uluwatu)North of Uluwatu
Klapa New Kuta is a beach club part of the Klapa resort on Dreamland Beach, which is located between the airport and Uluwatu. The club is located on a cliff overlooking the ocean, so not directly on the sea.
A unique selling point of Klapa, besides the beautiful view, is that it is a very affordable beach club. You'll pay roughly 8$ to get in, but this can be spent on drinks and beverages. A lounger chair can be used for free.Official Website
