Bali has no shortage of brilliant beach clubs, many of which don’t charge for day access and are open throughout the day and into the evening. Unlike other destinations, they’re much less exclusive and really open for any tourist in Bali to visit.
From Canggu to Seminyak, Kuta to Uluwatu, all of Bali’s key tourist areas have beach clubs which are perfect for both long days lounging in the sun, or sunset sessions.
I’ve listed my favourite 5 here, so read on and get planning your Bali trip!
Potato Head Beach Club
A rather iconic Bali destination, from its architecturally amazing amphitheatre-style building and entrance, to the famed pool parties occurring every day of the week. 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.
Address: Jl. Petitenget No. 51 Seminyak, Bali 83061
Opening Hours: 10am-2am daily
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.
Top tip: Definitely book if you’re planning to get a table at sunset time for dinner
Address: Kuta Utara, Canggu, Kabupaten Badung, Bali
Opening Hours: 11am-11pm daily
The W Hotel – Woo Bar
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!
Address: Jl. Petitenget, Kerobokan, Seminyak, Bali, 80361
Opening Hours: 10am- late daily
Sundays Beach Club
Unfortunately, this amazing day beach club doesn’t have free entry and it is attached to the very plush The Ungasan Cliff Resort. However, this beach club offers more than the others and might have been our favourite in our time in Bali.
An adult day pass costs IDR 300,000 which includes beach club access (via super cool lift), a towel and fast wifi. You also receive a IDR 150,000 voucher towards food and beverage which definitely helps towards your lunch, but wouldn’t completely cover it.
Sundays Beach Club also offers kayaks, snorkeling equipment and SUPs as well as an evening bonfire sunset session!
However, to use/reserve a lounger/bean bag, the entry cost jumps to IDR 500,000 per person.
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!
Address: Jalan Pantai Selatan Gau, Banjar Wijaya Kusuma, Ungasan 80362 Bali
Opening Hours: 9am- 6pm daily
Not exactly a beach club, but more of a cliffside bar, this legendary hotspot is known for its infamous Sunday evening sunset parties. However, it’s a vibe any of evening of the week.
The perfect spot to watch the surfers line-up and take on the Bali waves, this bar pumps the music and draws in a very cool crowd. However entry is free.
Top tip: Arrive early to grab a seat.
Address: Jalan Mamo, Uluwatu – Pecatu. Kuta Selatan
Opening Hours: 10am – 10pm daily (1am on Sundays and midnight on Wednesdays)
