The 14 best places to watch the sunset in Bali, Indonesia

La Plancha

When you have limited time on Bali, you should definitely check-out this place. It is located right on the beach in Seminyak and has plenty of comfortable beanbag chairs. Sit down, drink a cheap cocktail, and watch the sunset!

Echo Beach

Another sunset hotspot is Echo Beach, which is located in Canggu. The beach is a well-known surfing spot and has some great seafood cafés. A perfect location to watch a sunset!

Tanah Lot temple

When you are a culture and nature lover, you should visit the Tanah Lot temple. Here you can see the sun set as the tide goes down and this results in an amazing postcard like scenery.

Uluwatu Temple

Another great temple where you can view the sunset is at the Uluwatu Temple. This temple is located on top of a steep cliff and is surrounded by the magical ocean. Next to the temple you can find an open-air Amphitheatre where you can watch the famous Kecak fire dance. The show usually starts around sunset time and provide you with an amazing view.

Pura Lempuyang Luhur, Karangasem

This temple is a bit more off the beaten path in comparison with the Tanah Lot temple or the Uluwatu temple. Here, you first have to climb thousand steps to the temple’s top level. Above, you will feel like you are standing on the clouds. When the weather is clear and sunny, you can see Mount Agung and during sunset time an amazing view!

 

Kuta beach

One of the busiest beaches of Bali, and not one that I normally would recommend to visit, but I have to say that from this beach the sunset looks pretty nice too! Despite the crowd, the beach is long and you can find a good and quiet spot. You can enjoy the sun set down, see some surfers, peddlers, and visitors.

Single Fin Bali, Uluwatu

Single Fin is an amazing cliff-top bar at Uluwatu. During sunset time, the bar is packet with tourists that enjoy the music, good food, surfers skills, and most importantly, a wonderful sunset.

Lovina beach

Up in North Bali, Lovina Beach is worth a visit! The black sand beach stretches out over two kilometers and is a perfect place to see the sun set down (,but also to see the sun rise in combination with a dolphin tour in the early morning).

Potato head beach club

If you like beach clubs and bars, you should visit the Potato head beach club and watch the sun go down at this swanky beach lounge. If you want to go for dinner, make sure to reserve a table in advance.

Warung Sunset Point Amed

Looking for a different sunset experience than at the beach or at a temple? From here, in Amed, you can experience the Balinese sunset in a different way. See the sun set behind Mount Agung!

Pemuteran Bay

Another great place to see the sunset is at Pemuteran Bay. This village is located close to Kuta, and is known for scuba diving and snorkeling.

Dreamland Beach

A must visit to see the sunset! This beach is located more south of the Island and will provide you with a clear sunset. Make sure to bring a flash light, since the way down (and especially up after sunset) is not so easy.

Jimbaran Bay

If you love food, and in particular fish, you should visit one of the plenty fresh seafood restaurants in Jimbaran Bay. Enjoy freshly caught seafood while seeing the sun disappear into the horizon.

Silent Hill, Bukit Asah, Karangasem

Love nature and camping? Go for a Picknick or camping to the hillside of Bugbug Village, Karangasem. The view will definitely inspire you!

The six best places to watch the sunrise in Bali, Indonesia

 Tegallalang Rice Terraces

Close to Ubud center, you can find the famous Tegalalang rice terraces. When visiting in the early morning, you can see the sun rise above the terraces and reflect on the pools. It is so much more worth a visit during the sunrise than during the day, when it is overflooded with tourists.

Sanur Beach

Sanur is the perfect place to watch the sun rise over the water! Go in the early morning, enjoy the quietness, and see the sun rise.

Ubud Water Palace

Rather than see the sunrise at a beach, go and see it rise at a temple! Located in Ubud, this water palace with a lotus lagoon, is a great place to see a sunrise.

Pura Ulun Danu Beratan

This temple is another great place to see a sunrise in Bali. In the early morning, the water is still, and the sun slowly rises over the mountains behind the temple.

For our adventurous readers, I can definitely recommend seeing the sunrise from the top of Mount Batur. You will wake up in the middle of the night, hike in complete darkness 1717 meters up, to view the most unforgettable sunrise of your life.
