Le Pirate Beach Club is the perfect place for a sundowner, offering panoramic views of the golden yellow bridge, which connects Nusa Lembongan and Nusa Ceningan. Quirky white and turquoise cabins accent the tranquil pool area, making Le Pirate a trendy choice for travelers to retreat to from Bali’s hustling main island. The cabins are petite, but with these beauties facing the ocean, you’ll find that size doesn’t matter. After exploring the island, make a pitstop at the bar and tuck into refreshing cocktails like the potent long island iced tea or the classic margarita a few of these and you’ll be stumbling out of here like a real pirate.

Flaunting chilled-out ambient and relaxed seating, the restaurant lets one kick back in style on comfy bean bags, hammocks, and swings. The open air-restaurant boasts warm tropical vibes, complemented by stunning views overlooking the seaweed harvesting farms. Bring your appetite with you as the mee goreng (fried noodles) is scrumptious and perfect with a frozen margarita. Cheeky hand-written signs, mismatched decorations, and nautical painted walls make this beach hub a truly photo-worthy locale.
