Why Come Here: Ride the waves and make new friends at the same time
Balangan Beach is undoubtedly one of the most recognizable surfing spots in Bali and, as a result, is usually one of the busiest. Known for its stunning white sand beach and consistent waves, Balangan should be on all surfers’ must-visit list, but with a few things to keep in mind. Balangan is a reef break and is known for being a little sharp. This means surfers usually visit this spot with booties to avoid any unnecessary cuts or injuries. Balangan’s popularity means it can easily get crowded, which can result in a more competitive lineup. On the plus side, it’s well located next to Bingin, Dreamland, and Uluwatu, which means you can head over to one of those if Balangan is too busy!
