Moreover, the mix of calm beach, the waves of the Indian ocean, and the swaying palm trees, is what makes sunset in Bali amazing. Once the ocean turns into a golden yellow, it’s a sight that you won’t ever forget. That’s why we say that sunset in Bali is such a masterpiece.

Let’s move on to the best places to enjoy and witness the memorable sunset show of Bali. Actually, Bali is the only place where you can find a sunset spot almost anywhere on the island since Bali is located near the equator. But of course not all of them are the best spot to view the sunset in Bali. To make your experience 100% better, here are the best places to enjoy the sunset in Bali according to us.

1. Uluwatu Temple

Let’s start the list with Uluwatu Temple. Located on top of a steep cliff, this temple is surrounded by the ocean below with waves crashing into each other. Besides the temple right next to it, there is an Amphitheatre with the Kecak dance show almost daily. But we’re here not only for the Kecak dance show.

The sunset view of Uluwatu Temple is already amazing to witness. Imagine you spot the sunset just on the edge of the cliffs nearby and witness when the sun goes down, it will be a moment for you to remember forever.

But there’s more than just the cliffs that Uluwatu Temple offers. Remember when we mentioned that There’s Kecak dance show at Uluwatu Temple earlier? According to Girlswanderlust, it turns out that the show actually starts around sunset time.

Yes! You can watch the amazing Kecak dance show with an amazing sunset view in the background! It’s really great and unforgettable isn’t it? To experience this, you can buy the tickets directly at the temple or book a tour in advance for entrance tickets for the show. But of course we recommend you to arrive a few hours before the show starts to get the ticket as quickly as possible.

2. Pura Lempuyang Luhur

Another temple to visit and spot the sunset is Pura Lempuyang Luhur. Located in Karangasem, this temple is also one of the best places to spot sunset in Bali. But to get the best view, you have to climb to the top level.

Pura Lempuyang Luhur known for its thousand ladder steps. You need to climb a thousand steps to arrive at the best spot of this place. But once you get to the top level, your struggle will be paid off.

Once you get to the top of Pura Lempuyang Luhur, you will feel like you’re standing above the clouds. If you’re lucky enough to get there when the weather is clear, you can witness the amazing sunset of Bali with Mount Agung at the same time. This makes your experience of witnessing the Bali sunset memorable.

3. Kuta Beach

Kuta Beach, the famous and the busiest beach on the island. Of course we should include this beach on the list. This beach has held the title as one of the best sunset spots in Bali. This is why Kuta Beach became famous overtime.

You can enter the beach for free and you will find a lot of cafes and restaurants nearby. Furthermore, you will find a shopping mall just nearby the beach. This shows how strategic this beach is.

But there’s something you should pay attention to. Kuta Beach is also listed as one of the most crowded beaches in Bali. Living up to its name, tourists came to Kuta Beach to witness the great Bali sunset from this beach. Of course you need to arrive at this beach earlier to get to the best spot.

4. Batu Belig Beach

Next in our list is Batu Belig Beach. Located in Kerobokan, North Kuta, this beach is a hidden gem you should know. This brown sandy beach offers a more calm and laid-back vibe. It’s less crowded than Kuta Beach so you can have your own space on this beach.

This beach faces west, making it ideal for the sunset-spotting in Bali. You can witness the panoramic view of sunset when the sun slowly sinks into the ocean. Moreover, Batu Belig Beach is also a sloping beach, which means that you can witness the sunset without any obstacles.

For us as a local, we love to enjoy sunset from Batu Belig Beach by laying down on the brown sand and witnessing the sunset while slowly closing our eyes, making it the perfect way to end our days before savoring the delicious oyster at the restaurant we will mention next.

5. Oyster Dealer Beach Haus
