Head to Kuta Beach in South Bali, Learn how to Surf and Ride those Inviting Waves

Article by Exotissimo Travel

If there is one thing Bali is known for, are its beaches. Some of their beaches do have waves. And with waves come, yes you guessed it, surfing. If you are a beginner and would totally like to learn how to ride the waves, then Exotissimo’s Surfing Experience is the day trip for you and is ideal for everyone, regardless of age. Surfing is considered by many as being the most fun and challenging Bali activity while you are in Kuta Beach, Bali! As with any beach activities, bring proper gear. Swim wear, suntan lotion, hat and shades are recommended. A change of clothes should also be packed.

That’s right, you’ll head out to Kuta Beach, one of the most famous destinations in the island. It is on the southernmost tip of the island. Once a quiet fishing village, the town was one of the first destinations to openly cater to visitors and tourism. And that’s right; the fist visitors here realized the surfing potential of Kuta. Along with the breaking waves, it is also renowned for its white sandy beaches and ocean floor as well as its waist deep water: the perfect and suitable place to learn surfing.

The experience starts off in the morning around 8 or 9 am, depending on the tide. But before hitting the ocean waters, learn the basics in the pool. It takes about 15-20 minutes. You will learn surfing fundamentals here, such as how to use your surfing equipment, how to step on the board, how to balance yourself on it, how to paddle to the waves and all other necessary do’s and don’ts vital to the sport.

Now it’s time to hit the waves! Continue your private lesson on Kuta’s oceans. This part of the lesson will take approximately 2-3 hours. And no worries. There will be a committed senior instructor whose duty is to fully attend to you.

Paradise does Exist: Just head over to the Island of the Gods here on Earth – Bali

Article by Exotissimo Traveler

What can be said about Bali? Let us rephrase, what cannot be said about Bali? Staking a claim as one of the if not thee world’s most desirable paradise location, the Indonesian island has earned every right to be labeled as the Island of the Gods. Everything you ever wanted on a beach island is here ranging from culture, heritage, friendly folks and of course that beautiful land and seascape that truly captures the imagination. If you’re looking for that unforgettable vacation in the tropics, Bali should be at the top of your list.

Beaches galore! You’ve come to the right place for it. There are all kinds here, big, loud party types at Kuta in Southern Bali, the quieter northern beaches of Lovina, the black sands (a byproduct of volcanic ash) of Candidasa in the east and the island getaway of Nusa Lembongan (if Bali isn’t enough of an island getaway for you). Plus there’s a whole bunch of other beaches around. You just have to be here! Any beach activity you can think of, whether it is swimming, diving, snorkeling, sailing, surfing can be enjoyed in full here.

Need to step away from the beaches? No problem. Just head inland. There you’ll find some of the island’s renowned green rice fields. If you are into the arts, then this is the direction you need to go as well, because this is where Ubud is. Being 600 meters above sea level, Ubud also enjoys cooler temperatures than the coast.

Speaking of elevation, Bali is a haven for mountains and volcanoes. Mount Agung is certainly one of the most striking, towering 3140 meters above the surrounding land. And that’s not all. On its slope is Besakih Temple, one of the most revered in the island. It came very close to being a victim of the 1963 eruption. The temple was just mere meters away from the lava flow! Mount Batur although shorter at over 1700 meters, features Lake Batur, a spectacular crater lake.

Looking for culture and heritage? Bali’s got a’plenty! We’re already mentioned Besakih Temple. How about wowing yourself at the temple made for sunset at Tanah Lot? And the Tirta Gangga water palace? Just beautiful. And while you’re at it, observe the locals and see an exotic culture and way of life that adds up to the colorful and distinctive aura of the island.

Comprising of aqua blue ocean waters, world-class beaches and diving spots as well as a large number of cultural, historical and archaeological attractions, Bali makes for an excellent holiday destination. Just soak it all in as you explore and experience Bali in Depth.
