Uluwatu

Sat atop white limestone cliffs, Uluwatu is home to big waves, secret beaches, quaint cafes, luxurious villas, and beach clubs with views for days. It’s the ideal area for a surfer’s getaway, a lover’s retreat, or a beach bum’s break. If you dream of nothing but gliding down flights of stairs to secluded beaches, upscale dining overlooking pro surfers in the ocean below, being pampered at grand resorts, and going to sleep and waking up to the sound of the waves, you better head to Uluwatu. My personal favorite vacay stays in Uluwatu are Dreamsea Surf Camp for views of the ocean from bed, The Ungasan for a seriously indulgent experience, and Green Escape for an eco-friendly stay.

Surfing ‘Ulus’, as it’s known to the regulars, is a rite of passage for any serious shortboarder in Bali. Located in Uluwatu and consisting of five separate peaks, it ranges from the out-in-ocean Temples to the zippy Racetrack that breaks over low rocks. The most famous section is the legendary Outside Corner, which offers clean, flat wave surfaces that can be ripped to your heart’s content. Of course, with a pros-only policy, you might prefer to just grab a cold one and watch others work some magic from the nearby cliff top bars. That’s cool too!
