Surfing in Bali for beginners

The first thing you want to do when preparing for a surfing trip to Bali is to get adequate travel insurance. Surfing can be dangerous even for professionals, so in the event of an emergency, insurance is essential. The ocean is a powerful force and without the right preparations, you could become seriously injured. Having travel insurance that covers your surfing can, at the very least, give you coverage if you later need medical care.

If this is your first time surfing or you're a beginner, you'll then want to book a slot at a Surf School so that you can learn from the best.

Where are the best places to surf in Bali?

The best places to surf in Bali are:

  • Kuta Beach

Though there are many great surfing opportunities all around Bali, aim to choose a location that allows you to enjoy all aspects of this island's way of life, and consider renting a vehicle to get to the best beaches to truly enrich your surfing vacation.
