    Kerobokan
    707 Beachberm Batubelig

    This laidback beach bar is on the dark sand coast between Seminyak and Canggu. It's far north from the bustle of Legian’s Double Six strip.

The kitchen is quite basic, serving simple ‘surfers’ bites’. These include fried calamari, nasi goreng fried rice and mie goreng fried noodles. However, the chill-out ambiance is quite lively, and the no-frills service is part of the reason crowds gather here. A small Bintang is IDR 25,000 (USD 1.85) and cocktails are from IDR 95,000 (USD 7).

    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).

    • Opening Hours: 09:00-24:00
    • Location: Jalan Pantai Legian, Legian
