Surfing

Indonesia has some of the best surfing spots in the world, the locations are exotic, with beautiful beaches and great waves. With so many waves to choose from there are numerous surfing holiday destinations throughout Indonesia. Surfing is commonly done off the coast of Bali., Java, Lombok, Sumbawa, Sumba Timor and Flores. Surfing in Indonesia caters for all surfers from the beginner to the professional, the best time to visit this surfers paradise is April to September

Bali is probably the most frequented destination for surfing, so be warned it can get crowded. The waves are good, and there is a wide range of accommodation to pick from and a vibrant nightlife. Padang Padang and Ulu Watu with its famous entry cave, are probably the most famous surfing spots in Indonesia, but both these locations are for the experienced surfer. Bali does also cater for the inexperienced surfer at Kuta beach.

If you're not keen on crowds then maybe try one of the surfing camps located on Nias Island - Lagundin Bay, Java - Garajagan and Ombak Tujuh and Sumbawa - Cempi bay. Waves in these places are less crowded, accommodation is simple, food is good and you are provided with a more local cultural experience. Indonesia is a real surfers paradise - so don't miss out.
