Bali's iconic surfing scene blossomed in the late 1960s and early '70s after eager Hawaiian, Australian and Californian surfers discovered the endless glassy barrels of Uluwatu. Complemented by Bali's warm hospitality, adventurous surfers were soon hooked, camping out at simple warungs along Padang Padang, Impossibles, Bingin, Balangan and Dreamland.
Today, Bali's Bukit Peninsula is a world-class surf destination; alluring thousands of thrill seekers year round. Padang Padang's legendary left hand reef break, nicknamed Bali Pipeline after Hawaii's famous Pipeline, is notable as one of the island's most hollow waves and is reserved for advanced surfers. For beginners and intermediates, there is a smaller wave closer to the beach that is fun and easier to catch.
In addition to surfing, the coastline's pristine white sand beaches and aquamarine seas attract connoisseurs from across the globe to revel in Bali's stunning natural beauty. Activities include kayaking; stand up paddling, snorkelling, shelling, and simply frolicking in the sea.
On any given day in the Bukit, you will find a multicultural melting pot of explorers, romantics, families and locals, all enjoying the endless bounty of Bali's treasures.
