When is the best time to surf in Bali

Best time to go

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 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 south west 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 Uluwatu, Sanur, making better waves in the warmer waters.

What kind of food & drinks is Bali known for?

Eating in Bali

Bali is known for its exceptionally fresh, vibrant and delicious cuisine. As Bali is a mostly Hindu island, there is a beautiful fusion between Indonesian regional cuisine, and Hindu Indian spices and flair. The Hindu cultural influence also ensures that there is plenty of vegetarian food on offer in Bali, as Indonesian cuisine tends to be quite meat dominated.

Local Tip

Visit the beautiful temple Pura Uluwatu on the Bukit Peninsula where you can see a kecak performance, or traditional Balinese dance. Many love to follow this amazing performance with a fresh seafood meal on the Jimbaran beach nearby.

Food

Try the authentic Balinese food from a warung, a humble street-side cart owned by a local family. Big chance you’ll get to try ‘Basa gede’, a foundational ingredient in Balinese cooking. The blend of spices includes garlic, red chilli peppers, shallots, nutmeg, ginger, tumeric, palm sugar, cumin, shrimp paste, and bay leaves.

Drinks

The traditional drinks in Bali are perhaps different than what you’re used to. How about black or green grass jelly on ice? A traditional herbal drink? Or a Java ginger soda? For those with less courage, you’re always safe going for a fresh coconut.
