Bali with its stunning landscapes and unique culture is a paradise. But for surfers it’s heaven! There are waves all year long, on the east, south and west coast, for beginners, pros and everyone in between. Check it out…
CHECK OUT WHERE BALI’S BEST SURF SPOTS ARE LOCATED:
Surf spots on the west coast work best during dry season (April-September) with offshore winds and good swell whereas all spots on the east coast including Green Bowls work best during wet season (October-March).
- Legian/Padma Beach (Jalan Pantai Legian) is a 10min walk up north from Kuta Beach. The break is similar to Kuta Beach with left and right handers and it works on the same tides.
- Seminyak Beach (Jalan Camplung Tanduk / Jalan Double Six) and the areas around such as Double 6, Gado-Gado and Kudeta are easily accessed by motorbike and offer a lot of peaks with lefts and rights. These beach breaks work well on all tides but low tide makes them quite spicy and steep. With overhead swells these waves tend to close out and are not that nice to surf anymore. Take care of the current that can become pretty strong.
- Batu Bolong/Old Man’s (Jalan Pantai Batu Bolong / Jalan Munduk Catu) is located in the heart of Canggu which is a 45min ride up north from Kuta. This semi-reef-break is nowadays a popular beginner and intermediate spot where you can easily rent a surfboard on the beach (50.000IDR/2hrs) or find a surf instructor (around 350.000IDR/2hrs including surfboard). Here you will probably find as many highly skilled longboarders dancing gracefully on waves as you can find beginners losing control of their soft tops and locals showing off how it’s done. These fat and forgiving waves still work on swells up to 10ft and on all tides – on low tide it might get a little bit messy though.
