The Raja Ombak: A Surfers Resort
The "Raja Ombak" surfers-resort is located in Pererenan/Canggu, on the south-west coast of Bali just one kilometer from the beach and close to various world-class surfspots. Around the corner you find the well known "Echo-Beach" Surfspot of Canggu with its surrounding restaurants, bars and shops where you can enjoy sunsets at the beach ...
Bali and Lomboks's fabled reefs and booming beach breaks are in season between April and October when swell swinging up from the Roaring 40s and Howling 50s march south-west across the Indian Ocean and the trade winds blow from the south-east. Even during the off season when the trade winds switch to west there are still classic waves to be had. Sea and air temperatures remain steady at around 28Â°C or 82Â°F. Pioneered in 1936, by Bob Koke, a Californian from Hawaii and later by the likes of Jerry Lopez. Perfection like this has a price, paid in the form of crowding, excess development coupled with littered and polluted beaches around the main centres such as Kuta. Famous breaks like Uluwatu always have a crowd but for the surfer prepared to travel adventure and uncrowded waves await.
