Bingin Bali Surfing

Bingin surfing spot is located just on the southern side of Balangan so this place it is quite easy to be reached. To reach this site, you can depart from Kuta area to find a preserved street. But you may take a warning of the remaining street is poor so you have to be extra careful. Located close to Kuta beach and Balangan site, this spot can gets overly swarmed as the people avoid Kuta on high season. This fact can make your mood for surfing down as the short paddle range of Bingin with a lot of people around is not very convenient

Balangan Bali Surfing

We include this place in our list for its tough wave and a comfy place for surfing. Same as Bingin surfing spot, Balangan's sea shore has a short paddle range. And before a new road was built in, this place was quite deserted and it was not easy to find as there was no permanent road to enter this site. Easily accessed now by sealed road, many surfers starting to crowd over this place. Situated just on south part of Bali peninsula, the landscape of the sea shore is broad, enabling surfers to have more space experimenting on style and practicing their skills.
