Bali bucket list #1 – Contemplate the sunset (and the surfers) from the top of Uluwatu’s cliff
Bathe in the late afternoon sunshine at the top of the cliff in Uluwatu and watch the sunset from Bali’s best ocean view. Our favorite spots is on the roof at The Edge bar hanging on the rock with a cold beer or 2. Find your bench, enjoy the breeze and watch the surfers surfing while the sky displays amazing colors. Life is that simple… contemplate. The Edge is just below the Single Fin where you may have a bite and find a party later in the evening. Cool vibes on that cliff… Make friends for life (or for a couple of nights…). Here, you will always feel on holiday. Do not miss Sunday’s parties at Single Fin!
