Potato Head Beach Club, Seminyak

A rather iconic Bali destination. From its architecturally amazing amphitheatre-style building, to the famed pool parties occurring every day of the week, it’s a must visit in Bali. The Potato Head brand has a number of outposts across Asia, but none are as spectacular as this beach club located in Seminyak.

Overlooking the glittering Indian Ocean, the beach club has a stunning infinity pool with a swim-up bar as well as three restaurants, another two bars and a large lawn, famed for one of the best sunset views in Bali.

Top tip: The daybeds operate on a first come, first served basis so if you’re planning to spend the day there, arrive early.

La Brisa, Canggu

Serving up some truly tropical vibes is this epic shabby-chic beach club right in heart of Canggu’s beachfront. It’s seriously chill and the perfect way to spend a super lazy afternoon on a bean bag or recycled wooden sun loungers.

The Lawn, Canggu

Located in Canggu, in the heart of the action, this beach bar has a great pool and a huge amount of seating ‘lawn-style’. Open throughout the day with direct access to the beach and its own infinity pool, it also offers up great dishes in its restaurant.

In fact, it’s known for its epic pool parties and incredible sunset sessions. With 4 pools, daily yoga and 6 restaurants, you could come here everyday and still not get bored!

The W Hotel – Woo Bar, Seminyak

Another Seminyak hotspot! Not only is the entrance pretty incredible (a real bamboo tunnel), but it’s huge and you can nearly always grab a table.

Top tip: Technically, you’re only supposed to sit in the Woo Bar area to enjoy drinks, food and also the pool. However, you can get away with enjoying the sun loungers – just don’t order food sitting here or they will ask for your room number!

Sundays Beach Club, Uluwatu

This beach club is my longtime favourite in Bali. In fact, I’ve written a complete guide to Sundays Beach Club here!

A mid-week adult day pass to Sundays costs IDR 400,000 (£22) which includes beach club access (via super cool lift), a towel and fast wifi. Within this, you also receive a IDR 200,000 (£11) voucher towards food and beverage. This amount definitely helps towards your lunch, but wouldn’t completely cover it.

A weekend day pass for adults costs IDR 450,000 (£25), and you receive a IDR 250,000 (£14) voucher towards food and drink.

Sundays Beach Club also offers kayaks, snorkeling equipment and SUPs as well as an evening bonfire sunset session!

Top tip: Firstly, arrive 11am or early to guarantee entry as they do have a quota and secondly, there is a happy hour at sunset (5-6.30pm) so save your boozing until then!

It’s the perfect spot to watch the surfers line-up and take on the Bali waves.
