Adults-only Bali Surf Camp
Our purpose-built Bali surf camp is right in the heart of the popular surf village of Bingin. Swell has the look and feel of a boutique hotel, but with the relaxed, social vibe you would find in a surf camp.
When designing our 2nd surf camp ( the other Swell is in the Caribbean), our thought again was to create the perfect surf camp for solo travelers or sociable couples and friends to get together with other surfers.
At the heart of Swell is a big open communal area with sunken sofa/fire pit, pool table, games area, huge dining table and bar. A Ping Pong table stands at the end of our massive swimming pool and deck.
And the location of Swell?
Right in the centre of Bingin; we are a genuinely short walk to the surf, beach and great restaurants. You can surf Bingin, Impossibles & Dreamland without the need for a taxi or scooter!

walk to surf
There is no better-placed surf resort in Bali to enjoy so many of the World’s best waves. The Bukit Peninsula is a surfing paradise; Bingin, Impossibles and Dreamland are all a short walk from us. Uluwatu, Padang-Padang and Balangan are a fun, short scooter ride away and Bingin Beach is one of the prettiest beaches in the whole of Bali.
Directly from Swell you can walk to a variety of wave types to suit you, whether you are an expert surfer, intermediate or beginner.
Read our Bali Surf Spot guide for more information on the waves to suit you.
Bingin, on the Bukit Penisula, is right in the centre of the best waves in Bali and Swell is very deliberately placed so that you only have a short walk (250m) to the beach. Restaurants are all around us and Yoga, a gym, a mini-mart, a spa and even a laundry are all within a very short walk.
We started our Surf Camp in the Caribbean 10 years ago. Clients loved the concept of the luxuries of a boutique hotel with the social aspects of a hostel. Swell in the Caribbean has ideal learning to surf conditions for people who have never surfed before. After looking for a location for a second surf camp, with detours in Mexico and Costa Rica; we finally made it back to Bali after 20 years. Yes some things have changed in Bali, but a few things remained the same: the surf is world class and the locals are still as friendly and smiley as ever.
We looked for a good location in Bali; Seminyak (too busy), Canggu (too busy), finally we made it to Bingin and we realized that it ticks all the boxes: Stunning beach – Awesome surf – A few restaurants, bars and surf shops and lots of local charm.
We decided against opening a ‘Bali Surf Camp‘, instead decided on a boutique surf resort, less focus on the beginning surfers, and more on the intermediate and expert surfers.Swell Bali does not have in house surf instructors, unlike at Swell Surf Camp in the Caribbean.What is the same?
The same good vibe, ideal for solo travelers. The standard of accommodation is also the same: super comfortable rooms, mattresses, linen and very tasty and healthy food.
