Another amazing day of Bali surf at Uluwatu.

Pura Uluwatu is one of Bali's most striking temples and it looks out onto one of the best known waves in the world. Uluwatu is almost always working as it consists of several breaks next to one another. These include The Racetrack, Temples, The Peak and when its really big, Outside Corner and The Bombie pump as well.

Uluwatu is in the Southwest tip of Bali on the Bukit Penninsula. Due to its fame and the fact that it almost always has some swell, it can get crowded. Its best to come early and never drop in on the locals. It is an exposed reef break and for experienced surfers only. It can be sketchy as you need to paddle out through a cave and the current is quite strong. Please contact us if you are headed there for the first time as there are many things to know before attempting to surf Uluwatu.

If you don't want to test yourself, just kick back with a Bintang at one of the restaurants carved into the cliffs for a spectacular view.

But surfers want surf and Uluwatu always delivers. We have found an even better place in Sumbawa though and we will be surfing Scar Reef with just a couple friends soon! But don't tell anyone.

I would be remiss to make a blog post on Ulu and not discuss the Temple. So here is one last shot from the Temple above. Want to shoot surf photography? Check out our new photo tours! Just click here.

Nice post and photos, thanks. The area's now getting a little too developed for my personal tastes although thankfully its not all just 5 star clifftop villas/hotels. I used to come all the time back in 2006-2008 when working in Jimbaran. I still prefer Desert Point across the Lombok Strait and Sumbawa.

If you coming to surf in Bali's crowded the local Bali boys own and ride every decent wave with no regard for anyone who came a long way to share in a natural resource..I will not be back's a lost destination, re surfing..

Hi John,
Sure, some spots get crowded but if you know where to go and how to approach it, your experience will be much different. I invite you to come with us and I think you will see a different side of surfing in Bali.
Warm regards,
