CHASING SUNSETS ON THE MYSTICAL ISLAND OF BALI

BEST SPOTS TO CATCH A MAGNIFICENT SUNDOWN

What do you think about when Bali is mentioned? Is it the splendour of its mountain landscapes, its seemingly endless coastlines, or its glorious beaches caressed by rolling waves? No matter the imagery that comes to mind, one can be certain that Bali evokes thoughts of a paradise on Earth. Known as the Island of the Gods, Bali is the most popular island in the Indonesian archipelago, and home to an ancient culture with its own unique philosophy of life.

While millions of tourists flock to Bali for a myriad of reasons—a massive nightlife scene that keeps its parties going from dusk till dawn, its magnificent cuisines based on traditional recipes and international influences, and the ever-fascinating Balinese art found in every nook and cranny of the island—Balinese sunsets are one compelling reason to look towards new horizons. Here are some of our favourite spots for you to chase your perfect sunset.

 

Meet an unforgettable sunset view at Uluwatu, Bali.

A TRANQUIL SUNDOWN

Built atop the cliffs of Uluwatu, Pura Luhur Uluwatu holds the purpose of protecting the island from evil spirits. Beyond its holiness, it rewards visitors with a majestic panorama of the horizon—and can be considered to be one of Bali’s best sunset spots. One can also watch the famous Kecak Fire Dance, a cultural performance of ancient scenes from the Ramayana, coloured with intricate costumes its performers adorn while enacting a riveting fire dance to the tune of mesmerising chants.

Perfect from every angle – view of Mount Agung from Nusa Lembongan in the late evening.

A SUNSET OF THE SOCIAL KIND

If you are the kind of person who prefers watching the sunset while kicking back to vibes of a social atmosphere, the establishments along Nusa Lembongan would be right up your alley. Noteworthy places to check out would be The Deck Cafe and Bar, Mainski Bar and Lounge, Panorama Bar and Restaurant amongst many others. On rooftop bars, beanbags on the beach, or fancy restaurants alike, one can expect the sun going down in fascinating fashion to the trendy beat of chic. Absolutely perfect for pictures to make all your friends jealous on social media.

THE UNMISTAKABLE FAVOu=URITES

The most popular experience amongst tourists to experience a sunset in Bali would be the ones that are well lauded by the ceaseless traveling contingents over the years. Along the beaches of Kuta, Seminyak, and Jimbaran one can find a throng of great spots to unwind while the sun sinks into the depths of the Indian Ocean. Laze on the beach, or lounge on a high stool at a beachfront bar—a kaleidoscopic sunset is guaranteed. One should definitely check out La Plancha at Seminyak to feel the pristine soft sand under your feet in this Caribbean inspired bar, while sipping on an ice-cold Bintang beer as the sun sets to the sights and sounds of the tropical island.

Wherever you are in Bali, and whatever sunset it is that you chase, Bali offers you a sundown adventure unlike any other.
