Padang Bai

Best time to travel: 
January
February
March
December

Rumours of a good right hand point break peeling into the mouth of the harbour. But it needs a giant swell to even break, and you could be driving past excellent 8 foot Sanur or Keramas to get it at possibly 4 feet? However you might also be the only surfer there! About a 3 hour drive from Kuta. The harbour water can get quite polluted with oil and diesel, so bring soap and shampoo to wash off after surfing here.
