Best Beach Bars in BaliHow do these rankings work?
Tropicola is a unique beach club in Seminyak with ’80s style and an aesthetic inspired by Miami, Acapulco, Palm Springs, Tulum and Playa Del Carmen. Order the frozen Margarita with celery, cucumber and elderflower for a refreshing-yet-boozy tipple. Technically, you’re not at the beach, but who needs sand when you’ve got a huge pool and endless fun?
This is a sunset hotspot in Canguu, with a drinks list that screams ‘island life’ and authentic Balinese vibes. Built using reclaimed wood from more than 500 old fisherman boats, and expertly hand decorated, La Brisa is one of the trendiest, yet sustainable eco-friendly venues in the island. Shipwreck chic!
The fun starts with a funicular ride down lush, jungle-y cliffs to reach the blue lagoon where you’ll find this popular beach club. Explore scattered rock pools, enjoy complimentary water sports and relax by the bonfires to the cool tunes, as the sun sets cliffside. Grab a beanbag and toast some marshmallows for the perfect end to a day in paradise.
Expect DJs, live music, cocktails and seafood feasts at this luxury beach club where the fun goes from dawn ’til dusk.

Each space has its own individual style and atmosphere. So, whether you want to party of flake out, there’s the perfect spot for you.
Opening out directly onto the black sanded beach of Canggu, The Lawn is easily one of the best beach bars in Bali. Splash about in the ocean before sinking into beanbag out on its green lawn. Choose from zesty cocktails such as the Coco Lemon Gin with homemade lemongrass syrup and fresh coconut water. Bites to eat include poolside nibbles of fresh seafood.
Four pools, nine bars (including two swim-up pool bars), five restaurants, a sushi bar, daily DJs and night surfing? It’s no wonder that Finn’s Beach Club is so popular. Laze away the day in the sun from the comfort of single and double day beds on a white sand beach, or Party Beds in the lagoon pool. It’s absolute heaven here.
