Karma Beach Club, Bali

This beach bar is on the popular island of Bali. It's hidden away on a white sand beach and is part of the Karma Kandara Resort complex. Guests ride down the cliff on an elevator (dubbed an “inclinator” by the resort) to reach the bar. Patrons usually sit out on the sand during the day.

At night, the atmosphere at Karma gets a bit more romantic. Wine and champagne bottles open and couples dine on impossibly fresh seafood. Chefs create sushi dishes using fish that was just plucked from the water moments earlier.
