Bali is the Closest To a Perfect Surf Location

The old faithful among surf destinations. If there would be such a thing as a PERFECT destination, Bali would come pretty darn close. The island of the gods is one magical place with perfect waves rolling in wherever you look. Bali is hard to beat in terms of consistency and options which makes it so popular for all kind of levels and interests. Cruise around the trendy tracks of Canggu and hit up the usual suspects like Eco Beach or Berawa to mingle with the crowd or venture out to the Bukit to surf picture perfect reef breaks you’ll tell your grandkids about. Bali is for everyone and offers plenty of fun things to do after a day in the surf.

  • Currently there is no data about countries in this group.

  • Germany

    Entry Restrictions in Indonesia

    Tourist visas can be applied for upon entry. Required for this are:

    • Passport (no temporary passport)
    • Return or onward flight ticket to another country
    • Visa fees in the amount of IDR 500,000

    Foreign travelers over the age of 18 are required to provide proof of complete vaccination in accordance with the requirements of their home country. Exceptions apply for convalescents with appropriate proof and for persons who cannot be vaccinated for medical reasons and have appropriate medical certificates.

    For fully vaccinated (at least 14 days before departure) the quarantine requirement does not apply.

    Currently, one is considered fully vaccinated upon entry with two vaccinations. Since three vaccinations are already required for domestic travel in Indonesia to be considered fully vaccinated, it is expected that this will be extended to international travel in the short term.

    Those not fully vaccinated must complete a five-day quarantine in isolation quarters (hotel) specified by the Indonesian government at their own expense. On the fourth day of quarantine, a PCR test will be performed at cost. For minors entering the country, the quarantine requirements of the accompanying parents/guardians apply.

    If the test result is positive, asymptomatic or mild cases may be admitted to a special isolation hotel or facility for a fee. For more severe symptoms or in the case of pre-existing conditions, a chargeable placement in a COVID-19 hospital will occur in all cases. Proof of sufficient health insurance coverage, which also covers COVID treatment costs, must be provided.

    A completed Electronic Health Awareness Card (e-HAC) must be presented upon arrival. The card can be obtained before departure through the Pedulilindungi mobile app.

    After landing, a COVID-19 symptom check is performed, including body temperature measurement. If a corresponding symptom is detected and/or the body temperature exceeds 37.5 °C, a mandatory PCR test is performed.

Bingin is just one of many corners on the reefs under the Bukit cliffs, all of which produce some of the most aesthetically beautiful waves in Bali. During the June-October high season, the ESE trade winds often blow directly offshore into the typically SW swells, grooming the emerald-green waves into such grinding perfection it almost looks robotic.

On a good day, wave after wave stands up and marches out of the vastness of the Indian Ocean, wrapping around and into the reefs with uncanny discipline, like an army charging up out of the ocean; an image re-inforced by the sound track as bomb sets break onto the reef with the boom of heavy artillery. It’s an incredible sight to behold, and the sheer order of it all is truly mind-blowing the first time you set eyes on it. Get a little foretaste in our video.

What our customers say

"...Location was excellent, surf was so much fun, 2-3ft easy lefts, barely any crowds ..."

Leah
(Anantara Uluwatu)

"Best guides in the country are here. They are extremely professional for all levels of surf and take you to amazing places. The location is perfect and the services are truly remarkable. In short wonderful people and fantastic surf experience."

Gideon
(The Balicamp)

"And I’m back to Bali again. The island of surfers, tropics and fun… And this time I stayed in an awesome room with a view on the ocean with my boyfriend. Padang Pandang is right outside the doorstep, so we could go surfing whenever we wanted."

Komelija
(The Temple Lodge)

"Such a great spot. Everything about Limasan was lovely. The food was amazing, fresh and local. The lodge is beautiful, tucked away in a quiet neighborhood, but close to all the spots you'd want to hang out and surf. The folks who run the place are incredible, so friendly and welcoming, make you feel like part of the family."

Pete
(Surf Lodge Limasan)

"The Solid Surf & Yoga BnB in Canggu is great - the rooms are spacious, the atmosphere really relaxing and the surf and yoga teachers are superb - really a place to return!"

Five Reasons For The Perfect Bali Surf Vacation

01

Bali is one of the most consistent surf destinations in the world

One word. Ridiculous! The quality of waves that is. Bali is one of those places that is just jammed packed with world-class waves. Thanks to consistent southwestern swells, the quality of lefthanders are just incredible with pumping waves all across the island. Bali is the Nirvana for every goofy footer wanting to clock some serious tube time or any natural-footer shredding the backhand.

02

Bali offers waves for every skill set and level

Quality waves here are as common as the island's coconuts which we confess may be a slight exaggeration but the fact is Bali has one of the highest concentration of quality surf options anywhere on Earth. These include the world-class coral reef left-handers of Uluwatu, Padang-Padang, Bingin and Kuta Reef with the beach break offerings including Kuta, Legian or Seminyak.

03

Bali is a year-round surf destination

Bali has something to surf every day - period. The southwest and southeast coastlines of Bali are exposed to the force of the Southern Ocean swells which have traveled all the way from the Antarctic which deliver perfect waves from afar. While the off-season (November - March) can be on the smaller there are plenty of places along the island’s east coast you can scout for perfect offshore conditions often with only a few heads in the lineup.

04

Bali has plenty of activities on offer away from the surf

With such an enormous choice of high quality, tropical perfection waves on offer it may well be that you surf from dawn until dusk but should you want a break there will be plenty to keep you occupied here. Perhaps floating serenely above multi-colored coral reef gardens with a snorkel mask while turtles, manta rays and vibrantly hued fish swim all around appeals? You might choose to immerse yourself in some of the marvelous local culture on an excursion or perhaps you like the idea of not moving a muscle – swinging in a hammock or lying back as expert hands massage away all the surfing aches and pains? You can be super active or super chilled – the choice is yours on a Bali surf trip.

05

Live like a king on the island of the gods

Bali is an old soul when it comes to surf tourism and is well adjusted to surfer’s desires: plenty of villas, camps, surf schools, and beach clubs right on the beach will make you never want to leave the place. Wake up in your own luxury abode next to some of the best waves on the planet without breaking the bank. Yes, absolutely possible - only in Bali.
