This is an experience that should be on your bucket list. Stare out into the horizon and sip on some cocktails; you'll wish that sunset bali lasts forever.
Sunsets are our favourite colour. Cocktails are our second favourite. Here's where to spot both in #BeautifulBali.
Double-Six Rooftop - Sunset Bar
The name gives itself away to what it offers, but this famous location of what used to be Bali’s first super club boasts amazing views of the golden hour. The VIP floating pods offer a new way to experience the sunset. Located in Seminyak, you may find international DJs dropping in from time to time.

Rock Bar at AYANA Resort and Spa, BALI
A bit of a hike to get to, and often times with a ridiculous queue to navigate. However, once you’re atop the cliffs with a full panoramic view of endless clouds and dramatic crashing waves, you understand the need for the hassle. There is nothing left to do except to order a cocktail or two and await the most mesmerizing view of the sunset in your front row seats. This place promises one of Bali’s most iconic sunset view spots. The no- singlets, shorts and T-shirt rule ensures that only the smartly-dressed get to experience their carefully arranged signature cocktails or their cable car ride.

El Kabron, Uluwatu
Savour the Spanish vibes at this restaurant that also sits on a cliff. Perched 50 metres high from sea level, the vibe of this place comes from its Mediterranean colours and chic boho vibe. Paella, tapas and sangrias would be your poison while you oversee, or should we say “oversea” the Indian ocean.

Get down and dirty with the sand under your feet here on the Seminyak beach while you get cushy on their bean bags. This bar can be seen from miles away with their colourful bean bags spotting the shores. Their tapas and tipples give a bare (-footed) experience as you enjoy the unpretentious vibe and watch the sunset.
La Laguna, Canggu
Caravans, comfy cushions and enchanted gardens by the beach make this place a gypsy wonderland. Another instagrammer’s favourite would be their famous bamboo bridge that goes across the beach. Their fabulous list of favourite cocktails and housemade concoctions are perfect for a lovely evening on Berawa beach.
