    Seaside Escape

    Nestled in the heart of Petitenget Beach, Mano Seaside is one of the most favorite beach bars in Seminyak. What makes Mano more special than the others is their choice of music, which is played regularly by island-based DJs who are known for their sunset tunes. Apart from that, the café’s cozy rattan lounge chairs and beanbags in the garden, as well as their delectable dishes that include seafood and local delicacies, are the talk of the island. Of course, a sunset session will be more fun with cocktails or craft drinks. Therefore, Mano also has various kinds of cocktails and healthy juices. Mano is located on the beachfront, and to go there from Petitenget road you just pass a temple, a big parking area and traditional food stalls. This makes it more interesting because it gives a sense that the location is quite hidden. In addition, they have a new swimming pool that was just opened in September. The swimming pool definitely gives you more reasons to escape to this seaside gem.

    Sunset Chill

    If you have spent time in the Seminyak area, then you should make your way to Batu Belig, where 707 Beach Berm is located. With colorful beanbags and a tropical design, 707 is very easy to spot. If you head to Batu Belig Beach from Batu Belig road you will not miss this beach bar, as it is perfectly situated at the first step of Batu Belig Beach, which is also one of the best sunset spots in Bali. The 707 has three parts – the first is the beach part with beanbags, a long table and stools that stand on the sand. The second part is the upper area with beanbags on the grass, and the last is a spot between the beach bar and the DJ deck. The 707 also offers beer, cocktails and light bites at affordable prices. With no minimum charge and no restrictions, no wonder the 707 has become the must-go place for both residents and tourists in Bali.

    Stop Drop Coconut

    Enjoying sunset with a fresh young coconut to drink – sounds like the perfect combination! For this experience you can go to The Naked Coconut, the newest baby on Berawa Beach. Located just 200 meters from Finn’s Beach Club and a few meters across One Eyed Jack restaurant, this beach bar is the place to go to lay back, as it is filled with various patterns of rugs and batik-cushioned pillows, all set in front of some decorated trees. The menu is also extraordinary compared to other beach bars in Bali – fresh smoothie bowls, barbecue corn and satays, and beautiful-crafted drinks are on the list. Not to forget, there is also an occasional acoustic session with a bonfire in the middle of the beach bar. The Naked Coconut is not only for hanging out with your friends or family, but you might also meet some new people and make new friends.

    Open Lawn

    In the hub dominated by Kombucha, healthy food, surfers and yogis, The Lawn opens its own (literally) lawn for everyone who would like to have the real Batu Bolong experience. The Lawn is truly unique, as it does not restrict guests from bringing in their own food or picnic mat – you are also free to roll out your yoga mat and do yoga or other activities. This suits the Batu Bolong vibe perfectly, where people can easily join in many activities, and cafes and restaurants are open with a friendly ambiance. The Lawn has a van under a thatched hut that serves fresh coconut, mojitos, summer cocktails and popcorn. Since their menu is quite limited, you’d better bring your own food and light bites to The Lawn. Care to bring your kids? Please do because not only can they run around freely, but they can also swing on the wooden swings.
