Surfing Bingin Beach

surfing bingin beach

Have you ever heard of surfing Bingin Beach? probably not! it is not one of those super known spots, nevertheless its also not a top secret spot. What i can say is that the beach has been spared by mass tourism and that's cool. There is no huge mega hotel with hundreds of rooms. I'll be honest here, the beach perhaps not the most beautiful one to sunbath and the rocky environment makes it tricky to go for a relaxed swim without hurting your feet. So let's talk about surfing Bingin Beach!

How to get to Bingin Beach?

I already made a detailed Blogpost about the Bingin Beach itself so i'll quote this section here and you can read more information about where to stay and how to get there on this post.

"Bingin Beach is situated in the southern part of Bali, the region of Uluwatu. Bali has its own airport in Denpansar which is 35 min car drive away from Bingin Beach. Book a hotel close to the beach or park your scooter at the beach parking. Just google for “bingin beach parking”. From the parking should be street signs leading to the beach. The way leads through unconventional narrow streets through the buildings in front of the beach. sometimes the way seems to be wrong but trust the signs your on the right track."

Beach or Reef break?

Surfing Bingin Beach means dealing with sharp rocks. It is a reef break and i can highly recommend you to wear water shoes. I cut my feet, not very dramatic but you can hurt yourself seriously if you're not carefully, especially on low tide. I even saw some people surfing with helmets. Always stay safe buddy.

Is there a Surf school?

Yes, there are one or two surf schools. I've never participated in a lesson nor have i analysed their teaching style, but what i can remember is that some locals paddle out with you and teach you how they surf. So don't expect a "WSL" internationally certificated pro surf school.

Ending the ride with splashing up a some sea water. great job!

Can i rent a board in Bingin Beach?

Of course you can! The surf schools offer boards for beginners but you will also get some smaller specimens if you are a more advanced surfer. I think there is even a shaper, because they offer board repairs right by the beach. I mean in case you f* up your board shredding too hard. haha.

About Bali

Bali is one of the Islands in the southern part of Indonesia. Mostly there is tropical warm weather on the Island. The Island has an airport in the capital city of Denpasar which is situated in the South of Bali. The most beautiful month on Bali is September and the Rainy Season lasts from the end of november until the end of march. Most people speak balinese or indonesian on the island. We travelled Bali for a month. We landed in Denpasar in the south of Bali and went up to the north. We stayed in places like Nusa Dua, Canggu, Ubud and Pemuteran.

Bondi Beach and the Icebergs Pool

There are many options to go on day trips from Sydney. One of them is the day trip to Bondi Beach. This is the place where the famous Australian series called Bondi Beach Rescue was filmed. And as the name of the Series reveal it: Bondi has a famous Beach but the sea can get ruff there. It is easy to reach Bondi Beach with the bus. from the bus station we walked couple of minutes and arrived at the Bondi Beach Icebergs Pool.

The Bondi Beach Icebergs Pool

This Pool is an iconic construction which is a part of Bondi. It is a pool built right by the sea and when the tide is high, as it was when we where there, the waves clash against the pool corner and wash the swimmers with salty water. Its was so fascinating to observe how the waves splashed up against the Bondi Beach Icebergs poolcorner!

From the Bondi Beach Icebergs Pool starts the “Bondi to Coogee Walk”. It's a coastal walk known a tourist attraction and its really a beautiful path to explore, you’ll love

Surf Bondi Beach

 

Bondi Beach is a well known surf spot. With the high tide and the decent size of the waves i rent a surfboard and tried to catch some wave. it was pretty hard to ride the waves because the current was strong and the lineup crowded. Neverthless it was fun to practice!
