Where To Surf in BaliPosted under: Bali in General
Uluwatu's status as the number one surfing spot has since been challenged by Padang Padang, a shallow reef breaks just two km down the coast on the southern tip on Bali. Surfer Magazine has called Padang Padang, one of the 10 best surf spots in the world. The hollow left-handers here are some of the most consistent in the world, which is essential for competition.
Since Padang Padang receives swells from storms generated deep in the Indian Ocean, the tide can swell from a half-meter low to extra-ordinary highs of six to eight meters in a matter of hours. Very risk below mid-tide. From Uluwatu, take the narrow track along the cliff, then climb down to the beach, or ask for the car/bike track down to the beach. Imposing coastal scenery.
Lots of locals. At high tide in front of the Sanur Beach market there is a very sharp, fast, short left-hander. For bigger waves, hire one of the sailboats to take you to the channel in front of the Bali Hyatt, but in a high wind and rips the spot can be lethal.
Nusa Lembongan and Medewi
There are three main breaks in this vicinity. Also check out Medewi, near Negara, about 75 km on the main road west of Denpasar. There are several losmen (inn) to stay in.
