Bali’s Best Surf Spots.
Bali is one of those surf destinations that every surfer has to visit at least once (or many times) in their lifetime. Why? Because there is hardly another surf destination on the planet that has soo many different surf spots to offer on surf a small island.
The other awesome part about surfing in Bali is that Bali has something to offer to anyone: From complete beginners learning to surf to hardcore surfers looking for long rides and barrels, it’s all here.
The variety of spots: lefts, and rights, beach breaks and reef breaks combined with offshore winds on at least one side of the island make Bali a year-round dream surf holiday destination.
We tried to make the ultimate Bali Surf spot guide and list but had to condense it into the most well-known surf spots. Certain spots like Canggu and Uluwatu are named here as one surf spot but actually consists of several different peaks and with their own unique characteristics.
The 20 + list of surf spots below are the most well-known spots, but that doesn’t mean that there’s not a ton more surf spots on the island, lesser-known spots and even secret surf spots still exist in Bali. Needless to say, we are not here to give you directions and photos of the secret surf spots in Bali. Rent a scooter and start driving. The list of Bali’s best surf spots starts North in Medewi and we worked our way south to Uluwatu and Pandawa.
The star rating for the wave characteristics is a generalization when a spot is rated 5 stars it doesn’t mean it can’t be world-class on certain days. The same goes for the crowd rating. This is a measure for midday, high season crowd levels. Wake up early and in mid or offseason on your Bali Surf trip and there might only be 3 other surfers out. We will be adding more info and surf pictures over the next few months to this list of Bali Surf Spots.
