Shisha/hookah is popular and actively smoked in Bali. About five years ago, there were only a few decent shisha places in Bali, and getting good tobacco was not an easy task. Nowadays, there are hundreds of places on the island where you can smoke high-quality blends, and the number of restaurants, bars, and shisha lounges is constantly increasing. You can find them practically everywhere, in any tourist area: on the beach, in cafes, or in nightclubs. There are also services for delivering shishas, for example, @shishasukabali.
The best shisha places in Bali use the most popular and high-quality blends, charcoal, and other important components for a rich and flavorful smoke. The average price for a shisha is 250-300,000 rupiahs. Periodically, shisha festivals, trainings, and master classes are held on the island. This has helped to raise the level of Balinese shishas to the world standard. However, it is not so easy to find a shisha place that has good-tasting blends, a great interior, and a suitable atmosphere all at once. Let's try to figure it out.

The only difficulty is that the road to the club is not in the best condition, and it won't be easy to drive a Ferrari there. But when did that stop us?

A bar located on the beach in Seminyak. Shishas, snacks, drinks, and of course, sunset. Bean bags and tables right on the sand, often with live music. It's not worth coming too early, before 5 pm, as the sun is at such an angle that it can fry you pretty well and shine brightly right in your face.
