Bali is the most famous for its beach tourism. Usually, foreign or local people visit Bali’s beaches to surf because the waves support these activities. Well, this time we will give you information about beach destinations for surfing. Here are the six best beaches for surfing in Bali:

Balangan

Balangan Beach is located on Jalan Balangan, South Kuta, Badung Regency, Bali. Balangan is a popular surfing spot in Bali with an intermediate level of surfer experience. If you are a beginner, it is recommended not to surf here because the waves can reach 4-8 feet high. If you visit Balangan Beach, it is better in the dry season or around April – October because the sea waves are consistent in that month, and the weather is also sunny.

Balian

Balian Beach is not very well known to local tourists but is very well known by tourists from Australia. The waves are pretty high and consistent every year will be more suitable for experienced surfers only.

Balian Beach is not as famous as Kuta, so it’s a great place to visit if you’re looking for serenity. What is unique about this beach is that the sand is black and has a river mouth called the Balian River. The location is on Jalan Pantai Balian, Lalanglinggah Village, Kec. West Selemadeg, Tabanan Regency, Bali. It takes about 1.5 hours drive from Kuta Beach.

Nusa Dua

Nusa Dua Beach is very famous for foreign or local tourists. The address is on Jl. Nusa Dua, Benoa, South Kuta District, Badung Regency. Apart from being a white sandy beach, Nusa Dua Beach has big and consistent waves with a wave height of 6 feet.

In addition, in Nusa Dua, there is no lifeguard, so it is only suitable for experienced surfers. If you are still a beginner in surfing, it is better to surf in Kuta, where the waves are friendlier.

Kuta

Who does not know Kuta Beach? Yes, this beach has indeed become a favorite of all tourists. Besides having a beautiful sunset, Kuta Beach has white sand with calm seawater. The address for Kuta Beach is in Kuta District, Badung Regency, Bali.

The waves are also not too high, so it’s suitable for beginner-level surfing. There is already a surf equipment rental place for those of you who don’t have one while learning to surf in that place.

Batu Bolong

Batu Bolong Beach is located on Jl. Batu Bolong Beach, Canggu Village, North Kuta District, Badung Regency, Bali. This beach is a suitable surfing spot for beginners besides Kuta Beach.

Batu Bolong has a slow wave current with a wave height similar to that of Kuta. The thing that distinguishes it is the white sand of Batu Bolong, while Kuta has white sand.

Medewi

Medewi Beach is located in Pekutatan District, Jembrana Regency, Bali. This beach has black sand with many rocks on the shoreline, the sea is still clear, and the village is also unspoiled.

It is not surprising that tourists dub Medewi as the best surfing beach in West Bali because it has big and long waves. The wave’s height is higher than the waves in Kuta but shorter than the waves in Balian. Medewi Beach is suitable for surfing, but not suitable for sunbathing because the weather is very hot.
