Surfers are known for their Bohemian vibe. They roam coast to coast in search of the idyllist waves. At some point of time on their quest, every passionate surfer comes across the wave arena of Indonesia. Here’s our guide on where to find the Indonesia’s best surf which caters to all skill levels from amateurs to professionals.
Bali has an impressive collection of world-class surf spots and not too much surprise it is the ground zero for Indonesian surfers. Most of the surf trips begin from Kuta beach. The waves here suit every kind of surfers. The skilled surfers frolic in high waves whereas the tenderfoots surf the shallow sandy waters off the shore. The choices of surfing schools proliferate nearby this perfect setting for the first ever surf.
The nearby Bukit Peninsula is the perfect haven for audacious surfers. Padang is a standout among Asia’s surf resorts which only comes to life when the tides are high but when it does it seems like a pilgrimage of the surf fanatics with mad skills from across the world.
The most astounding wave arena on Java, is G-land. In fact, it has recently gained the reputation of a benchmark against which all other waves are evaluated. Never-ending, flawless, and consistent, G-Land is best reached via boat from Bali.
For something less spine-tingling, try the long, soft sand bottom right point in Batu Karas. It is tailor made for amateurs and beginners, but it is a touch less appealing for beginners and enthusiast. There are few affordable lodgings and a couple of surf schools as well.
Just south of Bali is the archipelago of Nusa Tenggara, which is blemished with surf spots. Lombok which is the next door neighbor to Bali is most frequented by surfers and the premium surf spot here is the Desert Point, which could match any surf spot of the world at any random day. The waves here are generally high, so it is advised to beginners to maintain an arm’s length from the off-shores. For something a bit gentler in approach, try Don Don or Ekas, both of which are on the southern coast of Lambok.
