Bali is a surfing paradise. Most foreign tourists like surfing in Bali because the waves are challenging and there are a lot of spots.

Kuta is often held at various Indonesia festival events. The beach is famously crowded. Even though it is crowded, this beach is often a good location for surfing.

The name is unique because it means to wash your head. The beach, which is located in Blahbatuh, Gianyar, is amazing. The beach tends to be quiet from the crowds so it’s good to be a surfing spot. The waves have a fast and big current type, suitable for professional surfers. This beach is often used as a spot for surfing contests in Bali.
This white sand beach is famous for local and foreign tourists. Nusa Dua is an attractive beach for surfers because the waves can reach 6 ft. But, since there are no lifeguards in Nusa Dua, this beach is only recommended for experienced surfers.
This black sand beach is located in Pekutatan, West Bali, and offers an unspoiled rural atmosphere. This beach is said to be the best in west Bali for surfing because the waves at Medewi are quite long and big. The height is greater than the waves in Kuta.
The beach in Pecatu Village has two areas for surfing. It is the area of Padang Right and Padang Left.
