Tourists Are Putting This One Of A Kind Bar At The Top Of Their Bali Bucket List

Share The Article

Bali is home to some of the biggest and best beach clubs in the world. The resort island is famous for its incredible party vibes and exceptional nightlife.

Whether you’re a total party animal or prefer kicking back with a cold one and some good tunes, there is a place for everyone to let loose in Bali.

There is one bar, however, that has truly captured the hearts of tourists in Bali. Located in the middle of the actual ocean, the pontoon bar in Nusa Lembongan is a one-of-a-kind experience that sits high on travelers’ Bali bucket lists. 

The Pontoon at Lago Bali, just off Nusa Lembongan, is an utterly incredible experience that is not to be missed! Nusa Lembongan is one of Bali’s outlying islands and can be reached via a 35-minute fast boat ride from Sanur or Padang Bai.

In fairness, a visit to Nusa Lembongan should feature as a top priority on every Bali vacation itinerary, but if you need any more convincing, let the pontoon bar at Lago seal the deal!

Lago Bali is a beach house tucked away on the charming and laid-back island of Nusa Lembongan. The Lago Bali team describes the beach house as a place “where everyone can connect with others and relax within the sanctuary of this paradise.”

They say, “We wanted to create an environment that felt like your favorite holiday home – with family-style dinners, movie night, and yoga, all set in a luxury space.”

They have certainly succeeded in their mission! Guests can spend a day (and night!) at Lago hanging out at the glorious beach house, wine and dine in the beach cafe, top up the tan on the sun deck, or sign up for the full VIP experience aboard the boat morning. 

Perhaps though, the most iconic experience on offer at Lago Bali is The Pontoon. This floating bar is a magical oasis in the middle of the ocean.

The Lago team said they wanted to create a totally new experience for tourists in Bali, inspired by their love of surfing.

They say, “As surfers, we wanted a place to grab a drink and take a break between sessions without needing to paddle back to the shore.”

But it’s not only surfers who have fallen in love with The Pontoon bar. The lounge area is the perfect place to hang out with travel buddies, dance it out to the absolutely banging playlist, and sip cocktails to your heart’s content. And before you ask, yes, there are plenty of snacks on the menu too.

The Pontoon is completely solar-powered and has its own water filtration system; this little floating paradise has everything tourists could need to have the time of their life. The Pontoon is open seven days a week from 12-7pm. 


Traveling with friends or loved ones and want an extra, extra special experience?

The Pontoon at Lago Bali is available for private hire! Lago has created a series of package deals to suit every group and every occasion; what better place to celebrate life than on a private floating bar in the middle of the ocean?!

A visit to Lago Beach House is the perfect addition to any trip to Nusa Lembongan. The tiny island is often overlooked in favor of Nusa Penida, which is a great shame.

Small, it may be, but Nusa Lembongan is mighty fine! It’s the kind of place that has tourists extending their stay time and time again. The island will really capture your heart. 


So, what else can visitors look forward to during a stay at Nusa Lembongan?

In terms of natural wonders, Nusa Lembongan is a beach lover’s paradise. From pristine sandy beaches to rugged clifftops, there is so much to explore.

Devil’s Tear is one of the most impressive natural landscapes on Nusa Lembongan and is a great spot to capture some incredible photos of towering and crashing waves.

Of course, safety should be a top priority during a visit to the famous viewpoints dotted around the Nusa Islands. 


Mushroom Bay is one of the most famous beaches on Nusa Lembongan, and it is totally dreamy. For a little added adventure, be sure to ask your local hosts about a tour of the hidden mangrove forest in the north of the island. You won’t be disappointed!
