Guide to La Plancha Bali Seminyak
Add this to your Bali itinerary – watching a La Plancha sunset on the beach in Seminyak.
This bright beachside restaurant and bar is a local institution for the hip (and not so hip) set.
Head on down late afternoon to grab the best spots.
Hot tip if you are travelling with kids: request a spot in an end-row, so the kids can dig in the sand on the other side of the rope, and run towards the waves. This location, on the edge of the crowd, is a win win win.
You get to enjoy a La Plancha sunset and a drink or two, while nibbling on delicious food.
The kids can play.
And no-one else is bothered.
La Plancha Beach Vendors
It’s also prime position for beach sellers to showcase their wares to your kids – everything from enormous helium balloons, to Balinese toys, to FAIRY FLOSS!
(Good luck saying NO to that one.)
The La Plancha beanbags on the beach experiences makes the best sunset spot in Bali.

4 More Reasons to head to La Plancha Beach Club
No.1: La Plancha is not all about the beanbags (although it’s our favourite thing about the place.)
Close second is the upstairs seating, and the comfy and colourful lounge area.
I mean, this place couldn’t get any cuter.
No.2: Divine styling
Take note of the Bali beanbags on the beach set up at La Plancha’s Mesari Beach, so you can style the same scene at home.
(Check our favourite homewares store – this place has cute Bali home furnishings to help you recreate it)
No.3: Croquetas de Pollo
Order the Croquetas de Pollo (chicken croquettes) balls.
My mouth waters at the sound of them.
No.4: Everyone is welcome at La Plancha, which is why it’s so good to visit with kids.
Good food for the parents, and good fun for everyone.
Do grab that Instagram selfie. You know you want to!
Hot tip: Go early for sunset, around 4.30 – 5pm if you have the kids with you. The queue for a beanbag set up gets crazy long.

The meaning of the words La Plancha is “grilled on a metal plate”
