Pondok Balian Hotel
Includes: return airport to hotel transfers, 5 nights air conditioned bungalow accommodation and daily breakfasts.
If you’re looking for a sleepy little village which isn’t as crowded as the likes of Kuta/Legian or even Canggu- then look no further. Balian Beach is located a 90 min drive north of the hustle of Kuta beach. The hotel is located on the edge of a natural volcanic black sand beach and beautiful cliff crafted by nature itself, which overlooks the beach and pumping A frame peak in front!
Balian still has the authentic Balinese feel to it and is mostly untouched apart from a handful of losmen and hotels. Many Yoga groups are starting to looking into Balian Beach as an alternative training spot other than Ubud.
The main break at Balian is the A frame looking peak in front which is an easy paddle straight of the beach. It’s a river-mouth rock shelf peak that is a reliable swell magnet, with the right being a lot longer than the left. Best at 3-5ft It’s a fun wave suitable for both short and long-boarders and can occasionally barrel, but it is generally a wall to shoulder ride.
There are multiple beach break peaks all up and down this area of coastline and the long left hand point break of Medewi is only a short drive up the coast. Generally speaking the further up you travel on the island the smaller the swell gets.
April is the beginning of dry season, which coincides with the start of the swell season. The Southern hemisphere swells start pulsing up the Indian Ocean with peak swell season being June through to September. This period also sees the winds turn to a favourable easterly direction.
The wet season starts in mid-October and lasts until late March-April, with the swells dropping to a more comfortable fun size coupled with some of the most uncrowded line-ups on the shoulder months. Winds during this time are variable and glassy. Check for the low season specials during this period.
Air and water temperatures range between 27-30 degrees C all year round.
