Alternative Beach in Bali’s newest unique daytime hangout, right in the heart of Canggu. It opened its doors to the public in December 2018 and now has a flow of travellers, digital nomads, yogis and foodies looking to relax and soak in the chill-out vibes.

It’s hard to look past the beach club’s distinguishing design elements. Picture crisp Mediterranean whites, natural wood beams, flowing rounded walls and a fresh splash of palms, plants and cactuses spread throughout. The use of recycled, natural woods throughout the building softens its imposing size and adds to its Greek island feel.

The main feature of Alternative Beach is a jaw-dropping slide that swings around from the third level of the main building and into the awe-inspiring swimming pool. It is quite a sight to sit and watch from the café deck as guests take the plunge and skyrocket past you into the pool. On the other hand, you might just be the adrenaline-seeking guest, go pro in hand, trying the slide out for yourself. The swimming pool also boasts a diving board, a pool bar, a sand beach, day beds, beanbags and rice-field views.
