Catching Waves & Family Fun: Your Ultimate Bali Surf Holiday

family surfing holiday in BaliThere’s nowhere better than Bali for a family that loves the sun, sand and surf. If you’re looking for a family-friendly surfing adventure, a Bali surf family holiday might just be what you need. Seminyak and Canggu are popular t neighbourhoods with amazing waves and great beaches for the perfect family surf holiday in Bali. 

While the entire coast of Bali is great for surfing, Seminyak and Canggu beaches generally tend to be more kid-friendly for a surfing holiday in Bali 

Our selection of Bingin and Uluwatu Villas are popular for more advanced surfers with DreamBeach, Padang Padang and Impossibles within easy reach. Jimbaran can also be a fun beginners beach destination! 

Nusa Lembongan is also great for surf and our team will let you know which Villas on the Island have good access to the breaks here. 

As a family of surfers, we are happy to chat to our guests about the best places to surf based on the current conditions and your experience level. Hiring a driver with surfboard straps or a scooter with a board rack is easy for our team to help with too. 

Where Is The Best Place To Surf In Bali With Kids?

If you’re coming to Bali for a Bali surf trip with little children, the beaches of Seminyak and Canggu offer fun places to ride and have fun.  

Smaller waves: Seminyak and Canggu often have gentler waves compared to the powerful breaks found in Uluwatu. These smaller waves are ideal for beginners, especially children, as they are less intimidating and allow for easier practice techniques like paddling and pop-ups.

Sandier bottoms: While some areas in Seminyak and Canggu have reef breaks, many spots have sandy bottoms. This is a safer option for beginners who might fall while learning, as a sandy bottom is less likely to cause injury compared to a rocky reef.

Surf schools and instructors: At Seminyak and Canggu beaches, there are plenty of surf schools and experienced instructors specializing in teaching beginners, including children while ensuring a safe and positive learning experience for kids. Learner boards can be hired from the beach. See our Bali Guide Page for recommended surf schools.

Close to Bali Family Villas: Our collection of spacious, modern and beautiful holiday homes is just a quick drive or walk away from the beaches of Seminyak and Canggu, giving you and your family easy access and the convenience that you need while on a Bali surf family holiday!

Best Beaches For A Bali Surf Family Holiday

surfing in Bali beachCanggu has great beaches, suitable for all levels of surfers whether beginner, intermediate or expert with consistent waves throughout the year. Popular areas for Bali surf family holiday include Echo Beach, Old Man’s, Berawa, Nelayan and Batu Bolong. For the best waves, head out in the early morning and late afternoon.

Seminyak is another favourite for family surf holidays in Indonesia. Enjoy daily surf lessons here or just jump right in and catch the waves. The waves here are manageable and less intimidating than those in Uluwatu with a sandy bottom free from sharp corals, which is great for beginners.

Other great Bali surf family holiday areas include Kuta, Nusa Lembongan Island and the Bukit Penninsula., While Uluwatu is a world-renowned surfing spot, we don’t recommend it for families on their first family surf trip to Indonesia as the waves here are often more  challenging,

What Time of Year is Best For Surfing in Bali?

surfing holiday in Bali on sunny daySurf season in Bali is the dry season which takes place from April to September. The dry season is typically the most popular time for Bali family surfing holidays thanks to consistent waves, favourable weather conditions and warm water temperatures ranging from 25°C to 29°C, with low humidity and minimal rainfall. 

Of course, Bali Surf is possible in all seasons with some months requiring trips to the East Coast more often which can be arranged with a car and driver or a surf coach/guide.
