Looking for a place to while away the day, cooled by the ocean breeze and with the sand between your toes? Here’s our choice of the best beach clubs in Bali – perfect spots to sit back, sip cocktails and enjoy the view.
Cafe Del Mar
The newest beach club in Bali, Cafe del Mar, has its roots in Sant Antoni de Portmany on the Spanish island of Ibiza. What started as one fantastic clubbing venue in 1980 now has 12 locations around the world. Enjoy luxurious dining and bar experiences with world-class DJs in the Bali outpost of the Earth’s original island beach club.

Finns VIP Beach Club
Berawa Beach, Canggu
Famously known as the World’s Best Beach Club, Finns VIP Beach Club occupies premium beachfront land, only 10 minutes away from Seminyak. Don your favourite bikini and splash around in one of the music-video-worthy pools stretching out along the sand, with swim-up bars and underwater speakers, or sip on drinks as you lounge on luxurious daybeds available on a first-come, first-served basis with a minimum spend guarantee. If you’d like to step it up a notch and experience true celebrity-style living, try Finns VIP which is an entirely different experience, with an adults-only pool area in a stylish white-on-white setting. Wrap it all up with a delicious Mediterranean meal, to the tune of a regular line up of international artists. This is another level of beach club chic.
Sundays Beach Club
Ungasan, The Bukit
When Finn’s moved to Canggu, Sundays Beach Club swooped their old spot, and it’s our cover image. Located adjacent Karma Beach club, the descent to the powdery white sand requires a worth-it ride in a cable car and some steps. Kick back and enjoy life at this chic day retreat that is nestled on a white sandy crescent beach on Bali’s Bukit peninsular. Pull up a beanbag or sun lounger and enjoy a day of sea kayaking, snorkelling or stand up paddle boarding wile listen to cool island beats and grazing from a perfect beachside menu. Sip handcrafted cocktails and watch the sun set while creating fabulous holiday memories.
Ungasan, The Bukit
Enter one of the globe’s hottest beach clubs high above the glittering azure ocean. Ride an inclinator down the limestone cliff to a white crescent of sandy beach that is perfect for a party. Bamboo and thatch buildings encircle an intimate scene, with hedonistic drinks and delectable food completing the whole experience. Groove to the soundscape by the stars of Ibiza and London’s DJ decks.
Karma is in the amazing Bukit region, where you can stay right on the cliffs.
Echo Beach, Canggu
Step into an amazing ambience at Echo Beach. Pirate ship pastiche meets bamboo building, tribal trimmings and fishing nets, ropes and palms trees. La Brisa is big and has a menu to meet demand. Drinks range from sensationally cold beer to cocktails crafted from local fruits. Kids will love this unique destination where the sand is their playground and the pool an oyster. Top tip: reserve a sunset table.
Ku De Ta
Ku De Ta is set on the southern coast of Bali Island, facing the Indian Ocean alongside Seminyak’s stretch of golden sand. It boasts a breath-taking sunset 365 days a year. Lounge on the cosy daybeds, chill out to some cool tunes, sip exotic cocktails, and enjoy a romantic dinner as the sun sets into the ocean.
Potato Head Beach Club
Potato Head Beach Club is located in Seminyak. It is hard to miss because of its unique ‘Colosseum’ – a towering elliptical façade of mismatched 18th century teak window shutters collected from across the Indonesian archipelago. Potato Head Beach Club is ideal for families, sun-worshippers, diners and party people. Take a dip in the infinity pool and watch a stunning sunset.
Pecatu, The Bukit
As elegant as it is beautiful this is an exclusive clifftop playground perched on the rocky bluff of Uluwatu. Don’t waste a moment, dive into a morning cleanser and take a dip in the pool before slipping into a long champagne lunch. Chill on the sunbeds to the arias of all-star DJs all while gazing upon the raw beauty of the ocean. Ulu Cliffhouse‘s world-class chef delivers a diverse menu from club sandwiches to tamarind and tuna ceviche and whole roasted fish. Legendary music producer leads the in-house studio. Ulu’s is well on the way to redefining the Bali beach club experience.
El Kabron Bali
Uluwatu, The Bukit
Spectacular views, sexy cocktails and outstanding Spanish cuisine are just a few reasons why we love El Kabron. It’s perched high above the Indian Ocean, offering sweeping views of the golden sands and surf breaks below. Lounge by the pool all afternoon, then stay on for sundowners and tapas, finishing off the evening dancing to groovy beats on the experience.
OMNIA Dayclub Bali
Uluwatu, The Bukit
This jaw-dropping cliff-edge venue in Uluwatu is designed to maximise panoramic ocean views from its cascading balconies, floating platforms and swimming pools. With modern extravagance and impressive VIP offerings, this baby delivers on lofty OMNIA brand standards, as set by the swank Las Vegas Nightclub by the same name. Hang out in plush booths, lounge on sunbeds or slip into your own private infinity pool. OMNIA Dayclub Bali puts out a sophisticated island vibe and fabulous food and bev. Japanese cuisine comes from the aptly chosen Sake no Hana restaurant (its flagship location is London) and a sushi-sashimi bar. Party music works all day and bathing suit weather lingers ‘til late.
