Hop aboard your 1980 VW Kombi, a classic ‘surf bum’ bus (with modern upgrades like Wi-Fi) that provides a fantastic way to enjoy the beaches of Bali for a day. You’ll start your bar-hopping tour at your first stop, the clubhouse at off-the-beaten-path Batu Belig Beach.
Purchase a cocktail such as a Delinger (vodka, strawberries and ginger sorbet) or another tropical drink that your guide recommends, and if you’re hungry, you may order food from the French-Balinese menu. After some time here, head to your next venue, passing through beach villages and stopping on the way at Pura Batu Ngaus, a 17th-century fertility temple where offerings are left in a blowhole connected to an underwater cave.
Drive by rice paddies and admire views of Uluwatu in the distance as you near the next stop, a boutique art hotel whose bar and restaurant boast ocean views. Relax here over a variety of sangria, and purchase tapas if you need something to eat. Then continue your tour south to Jimbaran Bay, where you’ll visit a beach club to watch the sunset, perhaps with a vanilla margarita, gimlet or frozen martini in hand.
Your final stop is a Bali hotspot, the ever-popular Ku De Ta, a waterfront bar, lounge and restaurant with a luxurious resort-like atmosphere in the Seminyak district. Your tour ends here—one of Southeast Asia’s premier beach clubs—so grab a cocktail in preparation for the rest of your night out in Bali on your own.
Please note: All food and drinks, including those from the Kombi’s minibar, are at your own expense.
