If you haven’t sprawled out beside a white sand beach with a designer cocktail in hand and your toes touching a glittering infinity pool – did you even holiday in Bali? We think not. Whiling away a sunshiney day (and night) at one of Bali’s best beach clubs is high priority on every Bali bucket list, so we’ve cherry-picked 30 of the very best from every happening neighbourhood. We’ve found the beach clubs that have reopened, and the ones that are still closed due to the pandemic. All you need to do is make a reservation, turn up, tune out and lounge on, just don’t forget your bikini!
Note: due to the current restrictions in Bali. Some of the beach clubs that have reopened are only open on certain days and times, with limited capacity. We say, call ahead to double check and reserve your spot before heading to the beachfront!

With its Bali-inspired aesthetics and endless amounts of delish food & cocktails. Potato Head Beach Club is top of the list for most Bali visitors – and deservedly so.

From the same family as Laguna, Favela, Sicilia and Plancha. La Brisa brings more of the same ramshackle cool that helped make all the others such roaring successes. Gorgeously casual with a chic edge (we love those reclaimed wooden deck chairs!). We’re stoked to say that none of the castaway island charm has been lost at La Brisa. Think rustic Spanish cooking, delish cocktails, swaying palm trees and a hot soundtrack to complement a lazy day in paradise.

4. Finns Beach Club – Canggu
Finns Beach Club – Canggu’s iconic bamboo powerhouse of tropical island hedonism. This toes-in-the-sand venue on Berawa beach has long had the hearts of sun-worshippers, partygoers and luxury lovers alike, famous for its front-row seaside location, its oh-so scrummy gourmet bites and cocktails, and don’t even get us started on the fabulous parties beneath the stars (on hold for the moment, obvs). It’s oh-so easy to spend an entire, blissful day here – lounging on your own sun bed, swimming to the pool bar for a Mojito or two, and by nighttime, getting stuck into a floodlit surfing session right out front while the vibes ramp up inside. It’s one of the most comprehensive (and utterly breathtaking) beach clubs around

6. Ulu Cliffhouse – Uluwatu
Hovering high up on Bali’s Bukit peninsula. Ulu Cliffhouse has (quite literally) elevated the island’s beach club scene to giddy new heights. The views across the Indian Ocean are pretty darn breathtaking, enhanced perfectly by a menu crafted by world-renowned Peruvian Chef Diego Muñoz. Throw in a 25-metre pool, a music recording studio, restaurant, bar and art space. You’ve got one seriously cool hangout spot. Head down from 4pm and check out their daily DJ lineup – a rotating cache of local and international dudes who know just how to serenade that sunset.

Perched smack bang in front of one of Bali’s best right-handers. Komune is the go-to spot for the wave riding crew who love a bit of five star après-surf.
