One of the best places on the island to watch sunset is anywhere on the Bukit peninsula. This includes popular areas like Jimbaran, Balangan, Bingin, Padang Padang and Uluwatu.
Most of these are well-known surf spots that attract travelers from all around the world, and one of the best places to hang out and have a cold beer is at Single Fin.
Located at Suluban Beach in Uluwatu, Single Fin has quickly become one of the most popular venues on the Bukit. There are several smaller local warungs heading down to the beach, but none beat the view from Single Fin, where you can look out to the horizon and watch the surfers down below.
It's also become "the place" to go on Sundays, when they have crazy parties with live music and/or DJs working up a sweaty crowd.
Single Fin was started by one of Bali's first professional surfers, Made Kasim, and expat Tai Graham. The surfers' hangout they created overlooks one of the best breaks in Bali, and boasts the largest balcony on the island.
That's not to say though that non-surfers won't enjoy the place, it's actually also a popular venue for domestic tourists and their selfie-sticks, thanks to the stunning ocean views.
If you're after a table or a booth for a group or just a couple of friends, it's best to book ahead. On Sundays especially, the place gets jam-packed and everything besides the Booths is available on a first come, first served basis.

Suluban Beach is located in the village of Pecatu, at Jl. Labuan Sait Suluban, Uluwatu, and can only be accessed from Kuta or Denpasar via Jl. Bypass Nusa Dua.
Take this road South until you reach the junction of Jl. Uluwatu II and then turn West towards Jimbaran Bay. After approximately 2 km turn left up the hill, following the signs for Uluwatu. Continue straight along this road until you reach the famous Uluwatu Temple and look out for the sign for Suluban.
A taxi from Kuta will take about half an hour, depending on the traffic. If you are planning to return later the same day or in the evening, it's best to book your transport back as taxis are few and far between in that area.
