Bali is known as one of the best places in the world to surf. When you're a beginning surfer, some of these waves could be a bit too challenging, but no worries, you can easily book a surf camp outside of peak season, as Bali has great beginner waves all year round. Choose your favorite surf camps in Bali and combine them with side activities as yoga, detox, or cooking classes, as the island is not only known for its swell but is also known as a wellness hub.
Bali is situated on the equator and is surrounded by warm ocean currents and therefore warm to humid year-round. There are two distinct tropical seasons, the wet season and the much cooler dry season that both impact the surfing conditions. For surfers, the best time to go to Bali is during the Dry Season (May to September) when the famous waves of Uluwatu, Padang Padang, Canggu, and Impossibles are at their best. Basically, you can find good waves on the southwest and south of the island in this season. During the Wet Season (December to April), the swells increase on the east side of the island, around Sanur, making better waves in the warmer waters.
Bali is a surf paradise! And what makes Bali so unique for learning how to surf? In most places, you’ll get your own one-on-one teacher in the water helping you to conquer those first waves, compared to the large group lessons offered in other countries. This one-on-one guidance is perfect for beginners and gives you a head start in becoming a pro!
