Ushering in the New Year in paradise
Bali is synonymous with relaxation and tranquility but any serious night owl knows that the island also has a fantastic slew of beach clubs catering to those who like to have a rousing good time. We hope you are ready to dance the night away but, if you’d rather have a chill New Year’s Eve, read on to find a location that appeals to you!
If you prefer to jump from party to party absorbing the good vibes, spend your evening at Kuta Beach. The whole area transforms into an extensive party ground with bottomless booze accompanied by house music. The atmosphere changes from Kuta to Legian, onward to Petitenget and Seminyak, so be sure to walk along the area until the sun rises on the new year as you soak up the full Bali experience.
Potato Head Beach Club
Is there anyone who hasn’t heard of this Bali classic? Potato Head Beach Club is home to one of the best sunset views overlooking the Indian Ocean and hosts a New Year Festival for their guests to ensure a rousing good time to welcome the new year. If you’re looking for a place to drink, dance and party, look no further.
Fireworks are a staple for any festive occasion; they give the night sky just a little bit more character and a reason to pull your favourite person close as they bloom overhead. For a chill night on this particular occasion, grab yourself a table by the beach and order up a seafood feast while you wait for the fireworks extravaganza to begin.
This part of the island offers a more intimate setting and is also family-friendly. You can consider a quieter scene and explore Bali’s arts and cultural hub. Unwind to live jazz performances, traditional dance and music shows, as well as a little Latin flavour in terms of food and entertainment to ring in the new year with new cheer.
Head over to Bali’s capital Denpasar to blend in with the locals and celebrate New Year’s Eve in true Balinese style. While it is less touristy than other regions of the island, it does not lack excitement or merriment. The evening begins with prayers and vibrant cultural parades through the city, before wrapping up with a fireworks show to remember. Selamat Tahun Baru!
