The island of Bali attracts top surfers from Australia and Hawaii plus beginners from across the globe. The peak surf season for Bali is April-October, but the destination remains popular year round. The 5km long sandy stretch of Kuta is arguably the best beach front in Bali. A lack of dangerous rocks or coral, makes the area attractive for beginners.
At the southern-most point of the island, you'll find Uluwatu, a left reef that is well known by surfing enthusiasts. The reef is divided into several sections - from top to bottom they are Outside Temple, The Bommies, Temple, Outside Corner, Racetracks and The Peak. The Peak breaks directly in front of the cave, which is the entry and exit point for surfing Uluwatu. Other spots to hit up for BIG waves in this area are Dreamland, Padang-Padang, Bingin/Impossibles and Suluban.

Popular tourist spot, Uluwatu Temple is inhabited by a large number of monkeys, who are extremely adept at snatching visitors' belongings! If you do have something taken, the monkeys can usually be induced to exchange it for some fruit.
