I recently spent three weeks in Bali, Indonesia. My friend and I stayed in a Surf Camp and besides our „Eat-Sleep-Surf“ rhythm, we occasionally went out to Bali’s most famous party places.
As I had to be fit for my surf sessions at six o’clock in the morning, we did not went out that often.
Anyway, today I would like to share with you my three favorite places/parties you should not miss out when visiting Bali.
Single Fin – Uluwatu
Uluwatu is located on the Bukit Peninsula and it is really beautiful! There is a big pro surf spot where the surfers have to go out in the water through a cave in order to surf the nice, big reef break waves. Besides the little bars and Warungs, there is a famous bar on top of the hill with a nice sea view, called Single Fin.
Every Sunday they have a big party with a DJ, a live band and dance music.
I can highly recommend taking a taxi or an Uber to Uluwatu in the afternoon and visiting the surf spot before sunset.
Around six o’clock you can sit down in a Warung and have some good cheap Nasi Goreng and a Bintang for little money while watching the surfers surfing in the sunset.
Later you will be happy to join the free entrance party at Single Fin, where you will meet lots of people.
The location is really nice and you will have a great evening with lots of dancing and fun.
Old Man’s Wednesday Night Party – Canggu
Canggu is kind of a hippie village above Seminyak which is in the Kuta area.
Above the famous reef break surf spot „Batu Bolong“, there is a bar called „Old Man’s“. Every Wednesday they have the huge open air party „Old Man’s Bar’s ‘Dirty Ol’ Wednesday“ with lots of drinks and food.
They usually close around twelve, but people told me that there are other beach partys around if you are still not tired of dancing.
La Favela – Seminyak
„La Favela“ is one of the most famous clubs in Seminyak, Bali. We were even able to walk there within 10 minutes from our surf camp.
The club itself is really nice, the DJs play good music (they are mostly playing charts) and the atmosphere is just great.
They also have different floors, open air seating and smoking areas and they even have a Photo Booth. Even though it was pretty expensive (50K per print), we loved taking pictures and fooling around in front of the camera.
What I loved while we were in the Surf Camp is that the people often go clubbing together, which is really nice. Just be careful when walking back home or taking a scooter or a cap, never go alone, it is always better to go in a group.
Let me know if you ever went clubbing in Bali :)!
I’m sorry for the bad quality of the pictures, I took them with my phone.
