My favourite beach spot – Barstarzz Bali

Canggu is full of cute beach spots and beach clubs but I recently discovered this small beach bar that I absolutely fell in love with named Barstarzz.

This spot is everything I imagined what Bali would be like! You can feel the warm sand underneath your feet as you walk towards the bar. Quickly jump on the bamboo and get welcomed by the dogs that love to hang out in the shadow underneath the trees. As you make your way to one of the beanbags you put your beach bag down and release yourself into a bag that in 1 second forms itself into the perfect bed. Put your feet up and enjoy the view.

 

 

A fresh coconut is being cut just behind you and served straight to you with just a straw stuck in it. I mean, whats more refreshing on a hot day?! However, my favourite part is when I finish the coconut, yep you read that right, when I finish it! Because the best part is yet to come! The owner of the bar will get your coconut, split it in half, and give it back to you with a spoon. Trust me, the fresh coconut meat is the most delicious thing in the world!

 

 

As you sit and enjoy the view you set your eyes on the menu which gives you a great selection of sandwiches, fruit bowls, juices, smoothies, cocktails and more. I absolute love the vegan sandwich which is made with crunchy bread, roasted vegetables and a coconut dressing. Its so simple but perfect! An amazing snack is the fresh fruit bowl which I order very often as its just a delicious selection of tropical fruit cut freshly for you at the bar. I appreciate the food so much at this place as its so honest, simple, fresh and delicious. Nothing is added, nothing is overly baked, fried or seasoned with things you can’t pronounce the name of. Its honest food made simple with love.

 

Barstarzz also has an open air gym which makes it perfect to have some fun but also to get a real workout done! After having done some sweating you just set a few steps towards the bar and order yourself a fresh coconut to stay hydrated!

Imagine laying underneath the tropical trees, a slight breeze blows through the leaves letting the sun sneak through. With a fresh watermelon juice in one hand and your feet in the sand. Isn’t that just a Bali dream?

I am in love with this spot and I’m sure you will fall in love with it too! You can find Barstarzz close to Finns Club on Berawa beach in Canggu and its open from 6am until 8pm. So you can stay to witness that magical Bali sunset!

Tropical breakfast at The Loft

Who wouldn’t like to be sitting in-between palm leaves while enjoying a tropical smoothie bowl!

The Loft is a cosy cafe in which you can sink into a couch and put your feet up. I recently went for the first time and I loved it.

For breakfast I ordered the ‘Quinoa porridge’ and a ‘Not so green’ smoothie bowl. The ‘Quinoa porridge’ (75k Idr) had a lot of texture and was full of fresh and sweet flavours. Definitely not your average porridge! The ‘Not so green’ smoothie bowl’ (75k Idr) lives up to its name.  It indeed did not taste green at all – even though it does have avocado and spinach in it. Nevertheless, its the powerful mango flavour that overpowers! Which makes the bowl fruity and fresh. Its smooth, not icy, not lumpy and the toppings are the perfect selection of fruit, coconut and delicious crunchy granola! They have lots of different smoothie bowls and the menu is full with interesting meals and drinks such as ‘Avocado latte’ and ‘Beetroot latte’.

 

 

 

The scenery is very open which makes the atmosphere very cosy and lively, especially in the evening. Not only is it very pretty, its also a very popular spot to be taking those Instagram shots! So Insta lovers make sure to get your phone out!

They serve early breakfast, lunch and even dinner. For dinner you must try one of their special burgers, doesn’t the ‘Matcha burger’ sound like a must try?! Like everything on their menu, you haven’t tasted anything like it before!

They are open every day from 6.30am until 11pm. So even the early birds and the surfers won’t have to worry!

Enjoy! X
