As one of Bali’s most popular surfing destinations, a holiday in Uluwatu offers pristine beaches, beautiful cliff faces and clear turquoise waters. Situated on the southwestern tip of the Bukit Peninsula, there are few better places to find a perfect mixture of exciting daytime activities and wonderful evening entertainment.

The Uluwatu reef attracts surfing aficionados of all levels from over the world, making it an ideal spot for anybody looking to take a few lessons or hit the waves themselves. You’ll also find a wide array of beach clubs, cafés and local restaurants dotted all the way along the coast. These are perfect for a bite to eat after spending all day at the seafront.

“With every year that goes by, it seems that more and more tourists are planning holidays to the picturesque island of Bali. One of the best things about Uluwatu is that it remains a hidden gem compared with other areas of the island. Rather than waiting a few more years until the tourism trade grows even further, I recommend visiting now to get a real taste of authentic Balinese culture and customs.”

“Uluwatu is a genuine paradise for surfers and features waves for all skill levels, from beginner to professional. If learning to surf has always been a key item on your bucket list, there are few better places to tick that box than in Uluwatu. Padang Padang Beach is also famous for hosting the annual Rip Curl Surfing Championship – an opportunity to see some of the world’s best surfers in action.”

Fresh Coffee

Uluwatu is quickly becoming known for its focus on fantastic fresh coffee. Sip a delicious local favourite on the beach as you watch the surfers catch a morning wave.
