Single Fin is Uluwatu’s hippest cliff-top bar that evolved from a surfers’ hangout into a fully-fledged sunset chill-out and live entertainment spot. The bar is usually packed at sunset and over the weekends when jam sessions take place.

At any given time however, you can simply go up to the bar and order a cold Bintang to enjoy with the view until the sky turns crimson. Non-surfers can simply kick back and enjoy the gruelling action displayed by the pros riding the waves below. Single Fin then brings Suluban Beach, otherwise known as Blue Point, to life with its great live music roster featuring a line-up of international guest DJs and notable local bands.

If you're feeling peckish, you can order a selection of pleasant bites that include hearty salads and delicious pizzas to share, pasta, satays and nachos. There’s a nalu bowl shack that serves surfers a healthy and filling treat for breakfast through lunchtime, filled with Acai berries, homemade granola and slices of fresh tropical fruits.

Single Fin Bali has a surf shop with men’s and ladies’ surfwear, gear, books, photos and surf memorabilia. Among the notable international board-riding and surf lifestyle brands you can find in store at Single Fin are O’Neill, Banana Boat, Nixon, Afends, Havaianas, Insight and Globe.

The bar can seem to get a little hectic at times, especially during their weekly jam sessions, but in a way that’s a good thing if you enjoy the energy of a crowd. For the weekend sets, they strongly recommend advanced bookings for the most coveted booths. Any other spots are on a ‘first come, first serve’ basis.
