The Best Spot in Bali to Watch a Sunset

by Matador Creators Jan 9, 2023

If you want to experience a magical sunset, look no further than Pantai Cinta in Bali. Located on the east coast of the island, this beach is home to some of the most stunning sunsets in the world. Here, you can take in breathtaking views while relaxing on powdery white sand and listening to waves crashing against rocks. From the moment you set foot on Pantai Cinta, it’s obvious why this spot has become so popular. The beach is lined with palm trees swaying gently in the breeze and there’s even a small hill overlooking the bay where you can get an unobstructed view of the sunset.

With its white sand, crystal clear water, and lush palm trees lining the shore, the beach is truly an idyllic sunset location. Every night around 6 pm when the sun begins to dip below the horizon, visitors flock here to witness one of nature’s most stunning spectacles—the sky turning shades of pink and orange as the sun slowly disappears. It’s also relatively secluded, meaning that it’s perfect for those who want to get away from the hustle and bustle of crowds and enjoy some peace and quiet. Plus, unlike many other beaches in Bali that tend to be quite windy and turbulent, Pantai Cinta remains relatively calm due to its sheltered location.

When you’re done taking in that beautiful Balinese sunset, there are plenty of other things to do here too. In addition to swimming and snorkeling in its pristine waters, you can rent a kayak or stand-up paddle board for an adventure out at sea or walk along its unspoiled coastline for amazing views. The calm conditions make it ideal for swimming, snorkeling, or simply soaking up some sun without having to worry about strong currents or waves. There are also plenty of food stalls located nearby serving up delicious local cuisine.

Pantai Cinta is open throughout the year, but there are certain times when visiting will yield better sunset views than others. For example, late October through early April tends to be dry season in Bali, and this is when visitors are likely to get the best views since there won’t be any clouds obscuring their view of the horizon. However, even during wet season (April through October), you can still get impressive views, so don’t let a bit of rain stop you from visiting.
