Surfing in Indonesia
Known as “The Island of the Gods” Indonesia ticks every single box needed.
Catering for singles, couples, families, groups for all budgets, requirements and surfing ability from mellow learn to surf beach breaks to the more advanced hollow reef breaks and point breaks.
Bali is the most popular surf travel destination. Bali, one of the Indonesian islands, has had exposure in the media and videos for many years now, with a whole industry to cater for surfers having developed.
The Bali pages are a few accommodation options we recommend in each of these places, based on standard of accommodation, location and access to the surf. We have access to literally hundreds of hotels, resorts and villas all over the island according to budget and preference.
Kuta, Legian and Seminyak is where most of the action is and offers the beach, (great for beginners) many restaurants, shopping and the bars and club nightlife.
However there are some great spots further north in places such as the A frame at Balian, Keremas/Cucukan area’s, Canggu and Medewi Point breaks. Then of course the Bukit Peninsular is littered with the infamous left point breaks like Uluwatu, Bingin, Balangan etc
Its fairly easy to get around Bali, However, if you want to surf the best break on the day we offer Surf Guides. These local guides know the island so well they can take you to the infamous breaks such as Uluwatu or other semi-secret secluded surf spots. Escape the hustle of Bali and surf the best break of the day.
Bali can also be used as a base to travel to a number of other islands. Nusa Lembongan is short boat trip from Bali. Lombok, Sumbawa, Sumba and Java are also accessible from Bali by boat or flights.
We also offer Day Tours around the island of Bali. Visits to Mt Kintamani, the temples and monkey forests of Ubud, inland rice terraces, the tranquil north coasts and many more. A great chance to escape the hustle of Bali and really see the island. Or if you prefer explore the Kuta/Legian markets, early morning bartering will get you some great cheap bargains on clothes, pictures and trinkets.
From New Zealand, Air New Zealand and Emirates offer direct services to Bali. Other options via Australia or Asia include Qantas, Singapore Airlines, Virgin Australia and Malaysian Airlines.
Culturally, Bali is unique. For the first time traveller aspects of Indonesia can be a culture shock. There is huge population on small islands and everything is to be bargained. In recent times the health risks have been greatly reduced, with bottled water now widely available and malaria has been controlled in the main tourist areas.
Good surf is available all year-round with May to September the peak months for swell and off shore winds.
