Bali’s Beaches for Every Kind of Beach Babe & Dude
1. Seminyak Beach – Epicurean’s Delight
Seminyak is known for the fantastic restaurants, clubs and cafes. Seminyak beach is no exception. The party continues to the beach with some of the best restaurants and beach clubs digging their heels into the 5 kilometres of silky smooth white sand of Seminyak Beach. Put on your chicest outfit and head over to the coolest beach clubs in town. Mrs Sippy, La Brisa, Ku De Ta, Potato Head and Cocoon Beach Club are some of the popular beach clubs dishing out groovy tunes and cold sundowners in a chilled out ambience. These trendy beach clubs are open through the day. So, hop on over during the day, grab a couple of loungers and transition from relaxed to party-mode as the mood of the club changes from day to night.

2. Nusa Dua Beach – Kid-Size Fun Too!
The popular haunts of Bali sometimes get PG-13. If it gets just a tad bit outrageous for the kiddos, Nusa Dua is the place to head to for a day. Family-friendly restaurants dot the beach, and the glittering clean water is pure splashing material for kids.

3. Petitenget Beach – Sunsets & Surfs
Petitenget Beach also located in trendy Seminyak is only a 7-minute drive from your private villa at Chandra Bali Villas. Here, you can surf, lounge about under multi-coloured umbrellas or grab one of the oceanfront chairs for an epic sunset and fresh dinner. La Lucciola or ‘La Looch’ is our personal favourite for delicious Mediterranean food lightly dusted with Asian flavourings. We cannot get enough of the seafood at Breeze. It’s the perfect place for a long indulgent lazy lunch. Dine in style, see and be seen at one of the coolest Bali beaches.

4. Double Six Beach – Surfing, Luxury & Horseback Riding
Horseback riding on the beach is like something out of a 90’s music video. But it’s for real here. You can saddle up and ride a horse on Double Six beach. Plenty of activities like surfing and snorkelling are available for the adventure seekers. The surf breaks are perfect for beginners. De-stress on the beach with a Balinese massage while listening to waves crashing in the background – trust us there’s nothing more relaxing than this. The discerning travellers will love the sophisticated dining options available on the beach as well.

5. Balangan Beach – Surfer Haven
Balangan’s relaxed vibe minus the dusk-to-dawn parties has the party crowd staying away. This only means one thing – more wiggle room! An ice-cold beer, homely Indonesian food and a quiet beach is the recipe for a relaxed island holiday. The surf breaks are great for beginners and advanced surfers. Most restaurants are affordable here if you’re worried about the wallet.

5. Jimbaran Bay – Sunsets & Catch-of-the-day
Get here early to grab a seat close to the show of the day – the sun setting in spectacular fashion. Well, the seat doesn’t really matter because the stunning sunsets light up the sky and it’s mesmerising from any angle on the beach. However, we are partial to the views from the many fantastic beach clubs (with a little drink in our hands). It’s also the perfect place to enjoy yourself and avoid rush hour traffic. The restaurants here serve a delectable range of fresh seafood that wafts in the salty ocean air. Hungry yet? Then, head to Jimbaran Bay for a delicious meal under sunset skies.

Bali is incredible with some of the dreamiest beaches in the world. The chilled out laid-back vibe combined with excellent food and numerous activities makes this a great holiday. Get in on the easy-going and have a truly relaxed holiday. And, if it’s the water you’re craving, jump into your private pool at Chandra day or night. Bonus: We also provide huge floaties and breakfast trays in pools!
Although, what our guests most look forward to are our grazing platters and cocktails served 4pm onwards. Contact our team to book your favourites from our grazing menu, your floatie of choice and everything in between.
