The Surf

CHECK THE SURF FROM YOUR BEDROOM WINDOW then take a 100m stroll down the hill to Balian’s main break. There are very consistent waves on offer here. Two rights and one big left. The waves break at a rivermouth over smooth rocks and reef creating a consistent set up all year round. The lack of crowds is a beautiful thing up here, however you will notice on really small days there will be an influx of crew making the drive up from Kutu for the day as Balian is a swell magnet. It’s not uncommon for Balian to be a perfect 3-4ft while kuta is dead flat. When the swell is maxing you have options also, head 20 minutes up the road to the amazing long mellow lefts of Medewi. Balian is a very diverse wave and delivers quality surf from 2ft -10ft. The beach at Balian sits on the west coast and is one of the few places in Bali that offer clean waves all year round
