Bali’s tourism all began with this sport, and it’s an all-time favourite. Bali has a collection of great surf spots, mostly around the southern coasts and the Bukit Peninsula, that has been drawing those in search of sun, sea and long rides through glassy tubes. Reef breaks, lagoons and varying conditions create great waves for both veteran surfers and newbies.
See more of the region on a half or even a full-day sea voyage to Bali’s neighbouring islands. Catamarans and sailing boats take you on fun-filled cruises around the waters of Nusa Lembongan Island, while others take you on castaway cruises to a ‘secret’ bay in Nusa Penida. Couples may also go for a romantic sunset cruise paired with dinner, around the bay waters of Benoa.

Make the most out of the outstanding waves along Sanur Beach with a personalized kitesurfing lesson.
