We can’t think of anything better than a cheeky trip filled with sunshine, salty skin and some of the most divine clifftop and beachside bars that this island paradise has to offer.
So from upbeat boozy day clubs to lazy chilled out sunset views, we’ve got something for any vibe you’re after.
Read on for the best beach clubs in Bali.
Tropical Temptation Beach Club
Sitting pretty on top of the soaring cliffs of Melasti Beach lies the brand new funky Tropical Temptation Beach Club. With its traditional bamboo structuring, two sparkling infinity pools for some serious selfies and a delicious fresh tasty menu focusing on local produce and quality ingredients, you’ll want to spend everyday lazing back on their daybeds and deck chairs soaking in the dj beats and stunning sunsets.
Arguably the OG when it comes to Bali beach clubs, Potato Head has gained superstar status globally for its sweeping sea views, fun vibes, great music and all-round relaxed tropical atmosphere that draws in droves of tourists and expats alike. The best part is that they’ve also now opened some super cool villas to suit all travellers meaning you can have all of this right at your beachside doorstep.
Previously known as Omnia Beach Club, the recently opened sky-high Savaya promises unbelievable views, jaw-dropping architecture (Google it) and some big-name DJs dropping in to spin the decks. Known as Bali’s ‘luxury playground’, this spot is definitely for the fabulous and those seeking a more up-market chic party club.
Café Del Mar
If you can’t get to Ibiza quite yet, then Café Del Mar is 100% the next best option. Think beautiful cocktails, multiple swim-up bars, infinity views over the ocean and Grecian-inspired white and blue interiors to really transport you to the Mediterranean. You’ll never want to leave.
For those of us looking for a more boho, laid back vibe then there’s no comparison to La Brisa. This place is more of a relaxed wonderland or something out of Alice in Wonderland with hidden corners, hanging coloured lanterns and magic everywhere around you. With some of the best sunset views in Canggu, we suggest you settle in early and take advantage of their delicious all day menu with a big fruity cocktail in hand.
Sundara Beach Club serves up elegance in buckets nailing that luxe ocean vibe you’re after on a mellow sunny Bali day. With a 57 meter infinity pool offering unparalleled ocean views over the sparkling Jimbaran coast, you can spend the whole day lounging in between dips with a good book and a couple of pina coladas from their 2-for-1 cocktail sundowner list as dusk arrives. Yes please.
Palmilla Beach Club
Another new lush addition to Ungasan is Palmilla, a boho beach club full of white and blue shabby chic day beds, hammocks and day lounges all perfect for a lazy day in the sunshine any time of the year. These heavenly surrounds are made even more perfect by the fruity delicious array of cocktail jugs and beer buckets ensuring you don’t have to keep getting up and down to the bar.
There’s nothing like a cruisy boozy afternoon set in prime position at The Lawn looking over the azure blues of Echo Beach watching the surfers catch some waves. We love that there’s something for everyone at this little piece of paradise, from a swim-up bar and dive pool to keep you cool, to their ridiculous cocktail list and their lawn space for families to picnic and chill out while the kids play on.
Le Pirate Club
For our island-hopping friends, Le Pirate Club brings bright kitschy beach vibes to the tiny coconut tree lined island of Nusa Ceningan connected to our other favourite island Nusa Lembongan by the famous ‘Indiana Jones’ style suspended yellow bridge. With direct beach access, you’ll be in prime position for a spectacular sunset staring over to the volcanoes in the distance.
Minoo means ‘heaven’ in Persian, and quite frankly we can’t think of a more perfect description of this chic beach club set on the white sandy shores of Melasti Beach. You may have seen pictures of their famous junkung boat that doubles up as a look out spot surrounded by a 12 meter infinity pool ideal for those balmy peaks of the day. With a rotating range of local DJs and a fabulous grazing menu, this spot is ideal for those who are keen to head away from your more well-known boozy day clubs.
Como Beach Club
Another luxe upmarket addition to the Canggu oceanfront game is the Como Hotel’s very own Como Beach Club. With their own modernised take on the traditional surf shack, you’ll be able to refresh and replenish after a big day of exploring by lazing back against the backdrop of the crystal clear waters of Echo Beach. With an extensive international wine list alongside some seriously zingy cocktails and tasty shared dishes, you can spend an entire day relaxing here from sunrise to sunset.
Sundays Beach Club
As the weather gets cooler, we can’t help dreaming of Sundays Beach Club’s white sand, azure water and seaside bungalows sipping bottle service in the Uluwatu breeze. This gorgeous very instagrammable spot even has a luxe spa you can book in advance to give you the full VIP experience. Go early, stay late.
