ULUWATU : Uluwatu is one of the best surfing destinations in the world. Also known as ‘Ulu’ or ‘Ulu’s’, the stunning sea view, crystal clear blue water, caves, and the temple offer the perfect backdrop for surfing.

There’s no shortage of great surfing spots in Bali, but if you’re looking for amazing waves and a truly unforgettable experience, Uluwatu really is the place to go!

Uluwatu is actually a cluster of 6 different left-hand reef breaks on the southwest tip of the Bukit Peninsula. From the far left point to the right you’ll find Secrets, Temples, Bombie, Peak, Outside Corner, and The Racetrack. But in summary, it’s an epic cluster of punchy and hollow reef breaks, and one of the premier surf spots in Bali. This world-famous surf spot is located on the southern tip of Bali, and it offers up some of the best waves in the world.

But it’s not just for the advanced barrel-chasers. There is no better place to learn to surf, than a destination like Bali where you can find also find mellow beginner waves, that are uncrowded and the perfect opportunity to get into the green. It’s also a great place to sit, have a beer with the sunset and watch experienced surfers (even some pros) take on advanced surf.

The best time of year to surf Uluwatu is during the summer months, from June to August. This is when the waves are at their biggest and best, making it the perfect time for experienced surfers to catch some serious waves. But also if you’re a beginner surfer or if you’re just looking for smaller waves we can always find them. Our team knows all the spots.

September to November is the best time to visit Uluwatu if you are a total beginner as the waves during this time are a bit smaller and more manageable, making it the perfect time to learn how to surf and practice your surfing skills. Even if you’re not a surfer (or let’s be honest, partner of a surfer), Uluwatu is worth a visit just to enjoy the stunning views and watch the pros ride the waves.
