Just a stone’s throw away from the hustle and bustle of Old Man’s, you’ll find Sandbar, an enchanting beachfront venue that is easily reachable within a 30-second stroll. This beach bar is an intoxicating blend of barefoot revelry, where party-goers and wanderlust-filled backpackers congregate to celebrate life in their own unique ways.
Sandbar is not just a bar; it’s a vibrant carnival of life. It’s where you’ll witness the curious spectacle of tipsy backpackers, fearless in their spontaneity, getting inked with tattoos that may well become lifetime souvenirs. It’s where you’ll see an array of visitors, both local and foreign, dancing with wild abandon, their feet sinking into the cool sand, under the veil of a star-lit sky.
Depending on the night and the temperamental tides, you may find yourself not just dancing on the sandy floor but also in the frothy seawater. As the waves sneak onto the dance floor, they join in the revelry, making for an immersive, almost surreal party experience that is as close to nature as one can get in the heart of Canggu.
The Sandbar, despite its beachfront location, has an intimate setup, accommodating around 15 patrons at a time. It might be small in size, but it’s vast in terms of the experiences it offers. The menu, though limited, is tailored to fit the vibe. Finger foods that perfectly complement a beachside bar experience are on offer, accompanied by a selection of cocktails and beers. It’s simple, yet satisfying, much like the bar itself.
There’s much to love about Sandbar, but perhaps its most striking feature is its pricing. The affordability of drinks is a definite draw, especially for those who want to enjoy a relaxed evening without burning a hole in their pocket. Combined with the unbeatable view of the beach, the pricing makes Sandbar a must-visit spot in Canggu.
The view, in fact, is perhaps one of the best you can get at a beach in Canggu. As you sit back and sip on your drink, you are treated to a stunning panorama of the setting sun, its hues painting the sky and reflecting off the gently lapping waves. This view alone is worth the visit.
While the bar’s drink offerings may not be gourmet, they are decent, cheap, and served with a generous side of spectacular beach views. The food options are simple, think along the lines of fries or burgers, designed to keep you fueled for your beachside escapade. Though we didn’t get a chance to sample the food, the overall atmosphere more than made up for it.
In essence, Sandbar is an embodiment of the laid-back, carefree spirit of Canggu. It is a destination that is both a journey and an experience, offering unfiltered beachside fun under the Indonesian sky. Located just a few steps ahead of Old Man’s, it is a unique venue that provides an unforgettable slice of beach life. Whether you are a seasoned traveler or a first-time visitor, a trip to Sandbar is sure to leave you with memories to cherish.
