Double Six Beach: perfect for swimming and learning how to surf
Double Six Beach is one of the most popular beaches in Seminyak, named after a nightclub. In the daytime, this beach is perfect for swimming and learning how to surf. The beach is wide with soft golden sands and there are cafes as well as local beach stalls to get food and drinks. Around 4 pm, Double Six Beach transforms into a picture-perfect postcard from Bali. This is the time when the beach bars get out their bean bags and parasols in all the colours of the rainbow. It’s the classic Seminyak image that you’ll see on the covers of travel magazines. Sit back with a coconut or a tropical cocktail and wait for sunset to strike. It’s magical!
La Plancha has cool DJ’s and sometimes even themed parties that last until midnight. Other bars have acoustic live music to create the perfect ambience for the twilight hours. Kids play in the sand and run around on the shore. Lovers gaze at the sunset. Everyone is trying to take that perfect Bali sunset photo. It’s lively, colourful and wonderful. You just have to experience it for yourself.
Seminyak Beach aka Kayu Aya Beach: Sunset drinks in style
We’ve got 3 words for this fabulous beach in Seminyak: KU DE TA. Nuff’ said! KU DE TA is the master of beach clubs in Bali – it was the first and it’s still world-famous. Sitting in the corner of Kayu Aya Street (Eat Street!), KU DE TA is still leading when it comes down to unforgettable events, parties, exquisite food and sophisticated sunset drinks. KU DE TA has an infinity swimming pool these days and the on-site restaurant Mejakawi is truly exceptional.

The beach has black sands and slightly rough waves which surfers will love. You can also pose on the Petitenget Swings for a perfect sunset photo. All the beach clubs have swimming pools, there are frequent parties and events and the food/cocktails are great!
Batu Belig Beach: Surfing
Less busy, awesome surfing waves and cool beach clubs you probably haven’t heard of just yet. Batu Belig Beach is still raw with grey sands, untamed ocean waves and a mix of laid-back beach bars and stylish clubs such as Tropicola. Batu Belig is still upcoming and it’s the perfect area for those who like to stay somewhere quieter near to both Seminyak and Canggu. Batu Belig Street has plenty of boutique shops, restaurants, spas and cafes. It’s wonderful to stroll down this beach road that runs from Petitenget all the way to the beach. The road is perfectly paved and you’ll find many cool places to sit down for a coffee and get away from the heat. places such as Watercress Cafe, Strawberry Fields, Nook, Unicorn Cafe and more.
Some say Berawa is part of Canggu but really it’s right in between Seminyak and Canggu and it’s a cool place with fabulous villas and lots of must-visit cafes! The beach has black volcanic sands, popular among surfers and it is home to amazing beach clubs such as the impressive Finn’s Beach Club (9 pools!!!), and the amazing Cafe Del Mar for an Ibiza experience in Bali.
