Bali is famous for its spectacular sunsets, that paint the sky yellow, orange and purple all through the year at around 18 o’clock. Whether you prefer a quite sunset on a beach on your own or you rather be sipping cocktails in a stylish bar, Bali has just the right spot for you. Have a look at these 5 places, that – if conditions are right – are perfect for enjoying the sun sinking into the ocean.
The Classic Sunset – Kuta Beach
Kuta was where tourism started in Bali and since then people have gathered at Kuta beach around sunset to watch the spectacle. Enjoy the sunset from one of the café’s along the beach, from your own private Kuta villa or even better, sit in the sand right on the water’s edge as the sun paints the sky red, yellow and orange.
The Uber Cool Sunset- The Rock Bar
The Rock Bar is pure glamour. The minimalistic bar sits on the cliffs of the Bukit peninsula, 14 meters above the Indian Ocean making it perfect for sunset views. The bar has a dress code, so be sure to dress up a little to ensure your access to Bali’s coolest sunset spot. At Rock Bar the sun goes down well with a Grand Margarita or a Lemon Tart Martini on the side.
The Romantic Sunset - Jimbaran Bay
Jimabaran Bay is famed for its romantic restaurants right on the beach. Get there early and watch the sun set while enjoying a pre-dinner drink. As the sun and the light disappear, the waiters will light candles on your table and get ready to take you order of fresh caught seafood from Jimbaran’s fishmarket.
The Postcard Perfect Sunset – Tanah Lot
Tanah Lot temple is one Bali’s most photographed sites. The small picture perfect temple is located on a small rock, off the beach on the west coast of Bali. It doesn’t get any prettier than it gets when the sunset acts a background for the temple. The only drawback is that the word is out, so be prepared to share the moment with hordes of photographers.
The Quite Island Sunset – Lembongan Island
Not exactly in Bali, but an hour by boat off the coast you find Nusa Lembongan. This laid back island is Bali as it was 25 years ago. Here you can find a quite white sanded beach where you can enjoy the sunset on your own only accompanied by the sound of the waves rolling onto the coast.
