There are two main reefs at Sanur, Sanur reef and Tandjung reef. To get there just follow the main road (Bye Pass Road) to Sanur and turn right at either of the two sets of traffic lights in Sanur.

These places need a lot of swell for them to work properly. If it’s maxing out at Nusa Dua you will find perfect right handers breaking at these spots. The locals here are very wave hungry and possesive of their waves which can make it hard to get waves when it’s under 5ft.

    Hey Slim, awesome site, check it every day. Heading over to Bali just after New Years with the fam. Got a couple of young-uns who are just starting to get into surfing. We’re staying over at Sanur. Is there any other gentle breaks you’d recommend for young teenagers over that way? cheers Brendan

    Hi Slim, I to am like Brendan above and would like to know if there are any breaks suitable for young teenagers and a Mum similar to that at Huzza’s in Grace Town or Iso’s in Cottesloe. If you havent been to Perth then I am stufferd but more gentle reef breaks let say. Similar to out front of Oahu Hotel Breaks, obviously rides wouldnt be as long. But is there anything like this in Bali?

  3. Dean says

    Hey Sally, Jump in a car in Kuta and get to Medewi. Nice gentle rolling waves and the longest left in Bali. Its easy to get in and out of the water, and pretty simple to duck dive the sets. Its a couple of hours drive from Kuta, but well worth the trip as long as the wind is not howling, but you never get onshores like we do in Perth.
