You want to hang out, enjoy a cold beer and watch the sun slide into the Indian Ocean AND still keep an eye on the kids! In Bali there are tons of places to chill out and lounge that are perfect for young, old and anywhere in between. Here are some of our favorites Bali Beach Bars and some of yours too!

La Plancha

You can’t miss La Plancha because of its bright colored bean bags and umbrellas spreading out over the beach. Late afternoon and early evenings at La Plancha are perfect for families as the kids can run on the beach while parents chill on a beanbag. It can get a bit rowdier later at night, but by that time we’re all tucked up in bed snoring with the kiddos. Find this Bali beach bar at the end of Jl. Dhyana Pura in Seminyak.

Ella n Dut Bar

Ella and Dut is a classic Bali beach bar; plastic chairs and Bintang umbrellas, and most importantly eskies of ice cold drinks for everyone. The vibe is very friendly and there are plenty of families with kids hanging out, so your kiddos might even make some new friends. Find Ella n Dut in front of Bali Mandira Hotel in Legian.

La Laguna

Baby sister of La Plancha, La Laguna is a super-bohemian restaurant/ Bali beach bar in Canggu. It’s laid-back, funky and totally hipster but we still love it for the space and views. Grab a bean bag and let the kiddos run and roll on the grass while you enjoy the delicious cocktails and tapas-style eats.

Komune Beach Club

My family has had many a chilled out evening at Komune Beach Club. The lovely grassy areas, beachfront views, campfire and night surfing are plenty to keep everyone entertained at this Bali beach bar. You can also spend the afternoon lounging by the pool on big comfy mattresses while the kids splash around. The kids menu is pretty good too!

Sam’s Place

Another Kuta classic, Sam’s has cold beers, friendly banter and a great location in front of HQ Beach Club. Put your feet up on a beer crate and let the kiddies build sandcastles and paddle in the Kuta surf.

K Resto

Stop in at K Resto for sundowners and stay for dinner because the food is great! Most of the tables and stools are on the beach at this Bali Beach Bar so you can watch the kids play while you have some adult time. Pizzas and meat and fish straight from the grill are reasonably priced and beers are nice and cold! Find K Resto on Double Six Beach where the vibe is very family friendly until late at night.

Boardwalk @ Bali Garden Beach Resort

Boardwalk is the beachfront hotel of the Bali Garden Beach Resort on the beach in Kuta. They have indoor and outdoor seating, a large grassy area for kids to run around on and also a swimming pool to watch the sunset from. Mediterranean Cuisine, International and Indonesian options, and fresh seafood are on the menu so parents and kids will get delicious food and reasonably priced drinks.

Bali Beach Bars Allow You the Best of Both Worlds

You don’t have to feel nostalgic for your pre-kids holidays when you have these Bali beach bars to hang out at. The kids will be totally happy to play in the sand while you have some time sipping cold drinks and having a laugh with your friends and family.
