Uluwatu is situated at the southern end of Bali, these days you can drive or ride all the way to the warungs on a sealed road. There are 4 different sections at Ulu; there’s Temples which is a long and hollow wave that works on the mid to high tide. The Peak right in front of the warungs in line with the cave also best on the high tide. Racetrack is a super fast but makeable barrel that works on the low tide, but gets seriously shallow. Outside corner is considered by many to be one of the best waves anywhere in the world, the corner won’t even start to break unless the swell is at least in the 8′ range, and then if your game you are in for one long and fast ride.
Dry Season – April/October
Best Swell Direction
Will work on anything from 3-10′. Uluwatu is a swell magnet and rarely goes flat!!
Ulu can get very crowded when the swell is in the 2-5ft range during the dry season, but when the corners breaking crowds are not much of a worry. Plus the crowds do tend to spread out between Temples and the Peak.
