What’s summer without beach?
Though the season is almost over, we still think that this will somewhat help your next summer trip or this year’s last minute beach trip. So for the next few posts, we’ll be covering on beaches, baby! And yes, It’s never too late for your cute pair of swim suit and that gorgeous sun kissed skin.
First born of the series, we’re covering one of the famous beach club in Bali, Indonesia.
Now who doesn’t love Bali? One of the very iconic and cultural travel destinations in Indonesia that’s popular with its beaches. Back in 2014 when I went for a holiday, another close friend of mine and I decided to dedicate one day to just lounge around, relax and enjoy Bali’s beach, far from the crowds. After a few options, we decided to visit Finn’s Beach Club, located at Ungasan, Bali. We were initially torn between Finn’s or Karma Kandara (another famous beach club in Bali) but with some considerations, Finn’s the winner.
I can assure there won’t be any regret when you’re visiting Finn’s, from top to bottom. When I say top to bottom, it is literally top of the cliff to bottom because Finn’s is located at the edge of Uluwatu Cliff. So you have to travel down the cliff to actually get to the beach area. But hey, not to worry, of course, there’s an inclinator (basically some kind of an elevator) that helps you to travel down to the beach or up the cliff. There’s also stairs, of course. I personally won’t choose that ’cause it’s hella high and steep. Nope. Nope.
What’s perfect about Finn’s is that no matter how packed the beach is (well, it’s not as bad as Kuta of course, this one’s far better if you’re looking for relaxation), you can still feel really cozy. You get the perfect sight of Bali’s sunset, a clean beach, as well as a clear blue water. Take note that the spots is reserved in a first come first served basis. But any timing is good. For tanning or for sunsets. But since I personally prefer sunset watching, Finn’s in late afternoon towards the evening would be better. You pick yours.
You have to purchase an entry ticket to come here, though. Per adult, it will cost you IDR 250K (USD 18), and for that affordable price, it comes with a full beach club and inclinator access, beach towel, wifi, sunbeds, water activity equipment, and most importantly, IDR 150K worth of food and/or beverages. Basically it can give you about one meal and two drinks per ticket. Depending on the tide level, you will also be able to do some kind of water activity like kayaks or snorkeling. Music? Resident DJ has one of the best playlist, some mixes are a fusion between western and traditional Balinese music, and it’s not bad at all! Something fresh.
And as for sunsets, where ever in Bali, are the best sunsets i know.
Don’t mind my pictures quality as it was taken when I just started using the tiny Go Pro. Baddd.. Go Pro doesn’t work that well without flat surface to hold on in low light. But anyway, experience it for your self, This place is even prettier in real life. Come to Bali if you haven’t already!
See you in the next beach post! Which beach do you think will be next?
