Ella n Dut Beach Bar

Legian
Ella n Dut Beach Bar

Ella n Dut is a very down-to-earth beach bar that’s right in front of the glitzy Azul Beach Club. Unlike most of the other beach bars on this list, this friendly local bar offers simplicity and a very laidback ambiance. While others feature a restaurant serving a range of cuisines, this simple bar has only a couple of cosy chairs and several beanbags under parasols on the sand. The drinks selection is extremely limited. The only nibbles you get are peanuts. These come complimentary for every beer you buy. However, a Bintang is just IDR 25,000 (under 2 dollars).

  • Location: Jalan Pantai Legian, Legian
