Surfing on Bali

Surfing is by far the number one outdoor activity around South Bali. The beaches around Kuta-Legian are best suited to beginners, and lessons are available along with equipment rental from several outlets along the beach (see Surf School links below).

Surfs Up!
Catching a wave off Kuta beach on Bali

More experienced "hard core" surfers often head south to the many small, almost hidden, coves beneath the cliffs of Ulu Watu. One such place is Sunset Beach, within the compound of a defunct housing project. From an ad-hoc parking area at the top of a cliff, a narrow path makes its way down to the beach. Several bungalows with rooms for rent are perched along the path. The beach at the base of the cliff is only about 100 meters long.
