This retreat will take place on the island of Nusa Lembongan, Bali, Indonesia.
The island has three main breaks that can be enjoyed by beginner to the more experienced surfer. All breaks are dependent on tides with best conditions on mid to high tides.
Playgrounds is an easy surf spot to get to, especially as Batu Karang overlooks this very break. A short stroll down to Coconuts Beach from the resort, Playgrounds is a sheltered reef break providing reliable and enjoyable surf conditions. It has a fun, long left, and (depending on the tide) a shorter barrelling right-hander. On a smaller swell, Playgrounds is an ideal spot for beginners. There are other surf breaks nearby for experienced surfers, Lacerations and Shipwrecks. If you are an experienced surfer, Yoga One can organize a boat ride to get you out to these breaks.
If the surf is nonexistent in Nusa Lembongan, Yoga One can organize a 15-minute boat ride to Cenigan Island where you will find a good two to four-foot left-hander. Best on mid tide, this wave has some testing sections to make. It tends to close out on larger swells but a great option when there are no waves at Nusa Lembongan.
Be rest assured, Yoga One will also have the help of local experts and extra local surf instructors on hand to help you with the most suitable surf destinations for the day given tides and swell conditions, be that for beginners or more experienced surfers. Nusa Lembongan is the ideal place to learn to surf or get a few lessons to re-ignite your surfing confidence.
You are staying in the perfect location for stand-up paddleboarding. As mentioned, Coconuts Beach is a short stroll down from the beautiful resort, Batu Karang. Yoga One can take you on a paddle around the pontoons nearby, out to Playgrounds surf break to watch the surfers close up or just simply paddle around to view the beautiful coral underwater. The water around Nusa Lembongan is some of the clearest you will find anywhere and a vivid aqua blue in color.
