Gili Islands – The guide

Are you looking for the perfect activity for a chilled out day? Your search is over, as I have the answer: Go to a beach club! Not only has Bali some of the most beautiful beaches in South East Asia, but it also has the best beach clubs. It doesn’t get much better than being able to enjoy the ocean, a nice pool, good atmosphere and food and drinks all in one place. The old favorites still hold their charm and newbies are added to the scene regularly. Here are my choices for the best Bali beach clubs whether you are with family, your significant other or a group of friends:

Bali beach clubs: Potato Head is located right on the beach in Seminyak

Potato Head Beach Club is a long-time favorite of the young and trendy. Since opening in 2010 it has hosted many great concerts and festivals. The beds overlooking the infinity pool and the ocean are the perfect spot for some delicious afternoon cocktails. The food in its three restaurants is also great, so a dinner after sunset is a good way to finish a great day.

The best time to visit is Sunday, when the hotel’s restaurants serve the best brunch buffet in Bali.

Bali beach clubs: Vue is one of the lesser know beach clubs in bali

Vue Beach Club, located inside LV8 Resort in Berawa, is so far a not so well-known venue. Most times you’ll only be joined by a couple of other guests, which is kinda awesome when you want to have the pool and the view almost all to yourself. The food is good and the happy hour cocktails will put a smile on your face. You should book a nice shady pavilion with daybeds in the sun to get the best out of the experience.

Komune Beach Club overlooks the famous Keramas surf breaks on the east coast of Bali. The lush gardens lead to the pool, which at times is occupied by cute surfer dudes discussing their latest set (and when the swell is on, you can just lounge in your chair and watch them rock the waves). Food is varied and worth the long drive. If you want to keep the day going, stay for their beachfront outdoor cinema.
