Ulu Watu & Around
Ungasan & Around
Man Sis Cafe
A bamboo place on the sand that could star in any post-apocalyptic beach fantasy, Man Sis has a sign on a broken surfboard, grandma slicing vegetables up front, US$10 beds upstairs and cold Bintang around the clock.
Inside the shady bamboo bar built on stilts above the sand, a vibrant azure ribbon of crashing surf is the wraparound view through the drooping thatched roof. Simple Indo meals set the tone for the bare-bones rooms off the bar (about 100,000Rp), which are little more than a mattress on the floor. It's one of about a dozen similar choices.

Bali Holiday Retreats
A good source for info on the many little guesthouses scattered about Bingin.
The entire Ulu Watu area had an upgrade in cuisine when Bali's homegrown chain of Italian eateries opened an outlet here. Enjoy pasta classics and great pizza in an open-air dining room in front of the Pink Coco Bali hotel.
Jiwa means 'soul,' and the juices and fresh, light food here are good for the same. This popular roadside stop has internet access.
A gathering point away from the cliffs at a spot between Padang Padang and Ulu Watu, Yeye’s has an easygoing ambience, cheapish beers and tasty Indonesian, Western and vegetarian food. Many gather at night for the pizza.
Right near the east parking area above the Ulu Watu surf break and cliffs, this is a top spot for those who don’t want to clamber down the steep concrete steps to the cafes close to the action. The views are panoramic and you can choose from a classic beach menu of sandwiches, seafood and Indo fare. The cocktail list reflects the splash of style at the bar.
Delpi Rock Lounge
At one branch of the Delpi empire, you can nab a sunbed on a platform atop a rock nearly surrounded by surf. Further up the cliff there is a cafe which has three simple rooms for rent (room from 300,000Rp).
