On big swells, a fun kid’s beachbreak appears at high tide on the inside of Jimbaran Bay, near the seafood restaurants. But the quality wave here is Airport Rights, a hollow right reefbreak out near the southern end of the airport. You can get an outrigger from Kuta Reef to drop you off and pick you up later, but you need 6 foot plus of solid swell, a high tide and virtually no wind.

Our #1 Recommendation for Jimbaran & Airport Rights

It's definitely worth the $5 a day for TRAVEL INSURANCE to avoid having to pay $50,000 for an Emergency Flight if you get badly injured on the sharp coral reefs or crazy roads.

Top Travel Tips

Respect the Locals

The Indonesian local surfers will be your new best friends. If you treat them with respect you will enjoy your trip so much more. A smile is worth a thousand words in any language. 

If you smile, talk quietly and give them the respect they deserve, you will develop true friendships, get cheaper bargains as a bonus, but more importantly you will gain a genuine insight into their uniquely spiritual lives and centuries old cultures. Indonesia is alive with religions like Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, Christianity and ancient Animistic beliefs. Your spirit will come alive in Indonesia.
