Bali is one of the most beautiful and wave-blessed islands in the world. This means you can surf every day from January until December. At our local beach, Legian, which is only a 5 minute walk away, works on almost every swell and tide – from beginner waves to full-on barrels it is all there right on our home beach. Within just an hour drive there are more than 60 different spots …no matter what level of surfing you’re at, there’s something for everyone here in Bali.
Legian Surf Hotel offer customers a surfing program that is designed to optimize your surfing experience on two levels: Firstly, we try to make sure you are at the right spot at the right time, and secondly, we work on developing your surfing skills. To ensure we give you the maximum attention we limit our groups to four people. In this way we can really work on your individual needs.
If you are a beginner it is best to start surfing with the right equipment and coaches who really take care of you. This will help you move much faster towards mastering the art of surfing than if you start out by yourself.
Our aim is taking you to the right waves at the right time. We check the swell, wind, tide, and our experience helps choose the right spot to make sure that you score a maximum of sessions during your short stay on Bali.
We try to push your level of surfing, no matter how advanced you are. Be it your first take off or your first barrel, we will help you to improve and achieve your goals.
Bali Surf Spots
Bali has over 20 top-quality breaks on the Southwest and Southeast coasts of the island and around the Bukit Peninsula. Some of these breaks like Padang Padang and Uluwatu are world class barrelling reef breaks. Others range from good fun, like the beach breaks around Kuta and Sanur, to serious tubular waves. Bali gets the full force of southern ocean swells directly from the Antarctic, its south-west and south-east coasts being littered with surf spots. The dry winter months (June-Sept) are preferred for their perfect surf conditions. However, this means that these are also the most crowded times. The Monsoon, or wet season (Oct-May) still offer good waves. Bali, unlike other areas of Indonesia where all spots are heavy reef breaks for experienced surfers, actually has a lot of beach breaks accessible to all.
- Padang Padang: “The balinese pipeline”. Left . Very fast long barrelling. Breaks over a shallow coral reef and is only for expert Surfers.
- Padang Padang Rights: Perfect for beginners. Long slow unbroken waves. Breaks in front of a beautiful white sandy beach. Ideal aswell for sunbathing and watching the sunset
- Impossibles: Left. Fast racy wave. Reef Coral break with 3 seperate peaks that can link up with good conditions. Just for Experts or Kamikaze Surfers !!
- Uluwatu: Left. Reef Coral break. Very consistent with many different peaks which all turn on at different tide stages. Experts only.

- Balangan: Left. Reef Coral break on a beautiful and very quiet white sandy beach. Suitable for all surfers.

The emerald islands of the Indonesian archipelago have for centuries lured everyone, from missionaries to pirates, traders and more recently to tourists and backpackers. The sandalwood and spice breezes, magnificent beaches, mountains and volcanoes of these islands acting as a magnet to both ancient and modern travellers. But Indonesia is also the ultimate surfer's paradise, with hundreds of islands and unknown waves waiting to be discovered. The climate is tropical and has two main seasons: the Monsoon from November to march and the dry season from June to October. The surf is basically found on the Indian Ocean (south/west coast) while the Pacific Ocean (north/east coast ) has hardly any waves. Although there are surf spots and good waves on about any island, the main surfing destinations are the Bali, Lombok& Sumbawa islands, east of Java island, the easternmost corner of Java, and the Nias and Mentawai islands, off the west coast of Sumatra.
Although Bali is relatively small (90 miles long and 48 miles wide), it is densely populated and culturally and economically one of the most important islands of Indonesia. Bali has more than 3 million people, a great variety of countryside and probably more than 10,000 temples. While Bali may no longer be the "last frontier" surf destination, it still lies at the heart of the Indonesian surf experience, the quality of its waves and "Bali Hai" lifestyle attracting surfers from all over the world. It is also a mandatory stop for anyone on their Indo trip to the adjacent G-Land, Lombok or Sumbawa surf spots. Bali is an island of high volcanoes, rice fields, majestic temples and beautiful beaches which has maintained its traditions very well alive, but you will equally find McDonalds, surfshops, cheap restaurants, bars and plenty of nightlife in Kuta.
On the southern shores of Bali, Legian is a beach area just north of Kuta and south of Seminyak, part of the greater Kuta area. Legian is a quieter alternative tough and with a more sophisticated nightlife scene focusing on dining-out and socialising rather than full-on partying.
Tropical. Warm waters all year long ! Dry season from June to September - Wet season from October to May
Bali is a tropical island with temperatures ranging from 21 to 33°C. Dry season lasts from April until September, and that means sunshine every day. Wet season lasts from December until March, and at least a short daily shower is common. It might get a bit cooler at night, but still, temperatures mostly remain tropical. So don’t take too many clothes! Except for one long sleeve outfit and the right shoes for hiking the volcano, shorts and tee shirts are more than enough. Besides, shopping is a must on Bali! Water temperature is a constant 28°C, so you will mostly surf in shorts. At chilly morning sessions you will sometimes wear a lycra shirt, but a neoprene shorty is not really necessary.
Bali Denpasar International Airport (DPS)
You need a visa for entering Indonesia, which you can do on arrival in Bali airport for EUR 35.-. It is only valid for 30 days, so if you plan to stay longer please contact the Indonesian embassy in your country or your travel agent for further details. Note that your passport has to be valid for more than 6 months after leaving Indonesia.
Money / ATM / Credit cards
Indonesian Rupiah (IDR) is the currency on Bali. All money changers change EUR, but if you don’t want to take too much cash with you, there are plenty of ATM machines which accept any credit or ATM (Maestro) cards from home. Most of the shops and restaurants accept credit cards as well.
Medical care is fine here on Bali. The most important personal first aid for cuts and wounds, common travel medication and sunscreen is still a very good idea and saves you valuable holiday time. Contact your doctor or homeopathist for vaccinations or us for further advice.
Packing Slip for Advanced Travellers
Along with your personal stuff take plenty of sunscreen with you. The risk of Malaria is still very low. But take with your prophylaxis tablets. In any case ask you doctor before going to Bali. Do not bring too much clothing with you, because we are sure that you are going to shop a lot. There are also a lot of cheap opportunities to wash your stuff.
