Surfside vacation rentals provide guests with amazing views as well as the convenience of being close to popular surf spots. So, what do you say about building a surf house? Below are five best locations in Bali to build a surf B&B and villas.
Old Man/ Batu Bolong Beach, Canggu
Batubolong Beach—also known as “Old Man’s”—is located on the West Coast about 25 minutes north of Kuta. It’s considered a part of Canggu’s surf village. This beach is another excellent choice for intermediate and beginner surfers. With a reef bottom contour that is quite flat, this place usually produces medium-sized, soft longboard waves that break and reform multiple times. This helps to disperse the crowds and ensures that everyone has an opportunity to catch some waves.
Local youngsters rent out an outstanding assortment of boards right in front of the place in the parking lot.
Padang Padang Beach, Uluwatu
Padang Padang, which hosts the annual Rip Curl Cup, is famed for its long tube rides and steep reef bottoms. When the waves are high, this surf spot known as the Balinese Pipeline is absolutely not for beginners. It boasts a monstrous left hand wave that can reach 5 to 12 feet in length. Booties might be an excellent option here because the reef can be rather sharp. On the right side, though, there is a modest beach break that is suitable for novices.
Padang Padang is a popular surfing destination between Bingin and Uluwatu, and it can get a little crowded at times. However, currently there are not many surfing B&B and villas in this Bali location yet. Having a vacation rental in this secluded Bali surf spot doesn’t only mean less competitions, but also potentially increase your popularity among surfers.

Green Bowl, Bukit Peninsula
Green Bowl, a not-so-secret surf location on the Bukit Peninsula, is named after the bowl-shaped ocean floor that is visible during low tide. The river reflects the greenery around it and is very breathtaking. There won’t be many people here because it’s not easily accessible (there are hundreds of concrete steps just to get to the beach). Green Bali or Green Balls are other names for it.
The little island of Nusa Lembongan is located west of Bali. It is without a doubt our favorite surfing spot in Bali, and one that we constantly look forward to visiting throughout our 12- and 18-day Bali Surf Trips. This small oasis is only a 25-minute boat trip from Sanur’s coast, yet the surf spots are half as crowded as those in Bali.
The best surf places are on the island’s north shore, facing Bali. Because of its location, swells have a tougher time penetrating the area, resulting in lower waves on Nusa Lembongan than on Bali. This makes it an excellent choice for novice surfers. The reef breakers on Nusa Lembongan are tide-dependent and create a totally diverse scene depending on how big or tiny the waves are.
