Pronounced Pah-dung. Real name Labuhan Sait. Bali’s hollowest, most dangerous left, tubing over very shallow coral. Only breaks on big swells when Uluwatu is getting out-of-control, over 10 or 12 feet. The only way to make the wave is to backdoor the 2nd tube section in front of the cliff, so it is a place for experts only, safest at high tide. Low tide gets insane but deadly.
To get there, turn off the Uluwatu road at Pecatu village. Padang is a great place to watch the best surfers in the world tackling one of the most awesome tubes on the planet. You can sit comfortably in warungs on the beach and count the number of broken boards! Unfortunately, it is very dangerous under 5 feet because it breaks so close to the cliff. Definitely not for learners.
