Bali, the Island of the Gods, is blessed with an abundance of almost everything – food, landscape, culture, spirituality, and waves. It is a swell magnet and a surfer’s mecca. 

Bali is where beach lovers come to chase the endless summer and wave hunters to chase the swell. It has every kind of wave imaginable – from mellow surf breaks for beginners to powerful and hollow barrels for those looking for a challenge–, and a laid-back, surfer-friendly community throughout.

Whether you’re looking to combine surfing with the pumping nightlife or would like to relax on an uncrowded beach away from the hustle and bustle of the touristy spots, you’ll be sure to find a surf camp in Bali that offers just that. Oh, and they’re easy on the pocket too!
