Bali offers not only beautiful beaches, but also many world-class surf spots each surfer dreams. The frequent coral reefs in the long beaches of Bali guarantee perfect conditions for both, beginners and professinal surfers.
Bali gets the full force of the ocean directly from Antarctica. Therefore, the beaches are littered in
the southwest and southeast of the island with surf spots, which provides a very consistent swell.
The dry winter months (June-September) are known for perfect surfing conditions. However, these are also
the months in which cavort most surfers riding the waves. In the rainy season (October-May), there are still
good waves in Bali.
The sea has a temperature of about 28 degrees, so you can easily surf shorts and T-shirt. Due to extreme sunlight a sunblock is extremely important.
