It's no secret that Bali has some of the most spectacular sunsets in the world. Here's where to find the best sunsets on the island.
1. Karma Beach at Karma KandaraLocated in South of Uluwatu, Karma beach is Karma Kandara resort's private beach. You don't have to be a guest of the resort to have access to the beach, but you have to pay a fee to enter, which is around $50 for as long as you want to stay. The restaurant by the beach, Di Mare, serves a wide variety of delicious comfort food and refreshing drinks. Sun loungers are provided, so the earlier you arrive at the beach, the better spot you'll get. Stay for the whole day and enjoy the dramatic sunset at the end of your stay.

2. Nyang Nyang Beach
Nyang Nyang Beach has one of the longest stretches of white sand in Bali. You have to travel to the southern part of the island, Pecatu area, to find this beach. Since Nyang Nyang is considered a "secret beach", you will have a peaceful, undisturbed day at the beach. The long stretch of white sand is perfect for a romantic beach stroll while watching the sunset at the end of the day.

3. Suluban Beach
Suluban Beach is popular among the locals and tourists, due to its location in Uluwatu. Not only is Suluban Beach the place to watch sunset, but also a great spot to chase sunrise. Stop by a nearby beach club called Single Fin to enjoy a sip of cocktail while soaking up the sun.
4. Tegal Wangi Beach
Located in Uluwatu area, Pantai (Beach) Tegal Wangi is full of "instagramable" spots. The small cave and the rocks around the beach make Tegal Wangi a fantastic location to do an epic sunset photo session. The access to the beach is a bit challenging with the narrow, rocky steps but as soon as you step on the white sand, you'll forget all the hard work you did.

5. Lovina Beach
The northern part of Bali is filled with black-sand beaches, such as Lovina Beach. The waves are calm, the landscape around Lovina is enriched by countless fishing boats. In the morning, you can rent one of the traditional fishing boats to go off shore and watch the sun rises up. If you're lucky, you'll see swimming dolphins next to you which makes the whole experience unforgettable. At sunset, the dramatic orange sky and the calmness of the beach will leave nothing but gratitude behind.
