Time to let your hair loose – Bali’s re-opened to international tourists from 14 October, as long as you’re prepared to serve five days in quarantine. Once you’re out, make a beeline to these breezy Bali beach clubs where you can breathe in the fresh, salty air and watch the legendary Balinese sunsets with your feet up and a drink in each hand. Cheers!
La Brisa Beach Club
On the shores of Echo Beach in Canggu, La Brisa (which means ‘sea breeze’ in Spanish) is an all-around stunner with sustainability in mind. The wildchild boho decor was built using reclaimed wood from over 500 old fisherman boats, while the menu also uses sustainable and locally sourced produce from the villages. Don’t miss the Farmer’s Markets every Sunday.

Potato Head Beach Club
This all-day drink, dine n’ play pleasure dome is definitely more stud than spud. Dive behind the shut(ter)-the-front-door facade to find a daybed-wrapped infinity pool, three restaurants and two crafty bars. Book your perch ahead then get down the serious business of lapping and lounging, but once night falls get ready to crank up the volume at PH’s infamous party sessions headlined by some of the hottest global acts to venture isle-side.

Ku Dé Ta
With a reputation spread far and wide, and offshoots popping up all over Asia, this chi-chi mainstay is still the default flopspot for many an avid island hopper. Along with some of Bali’s best pickings from the kitchen downstairs and degustationer Mejekawi upstairs, you’ll also get regular events, kid-friendly brunches, killer sunset-scopes, and thumping beats. But be warned – these days the entire venue operates with a strict dress code, so tatas and tackle should be kept under wraps.
