Attention rainy season surfers! On Bali’s East coast dealing to the Indian Ocean is Keramas, a small surf town on a beautiful black sand beach. Keramas Surf Camps are a right-handers dream, with most waves moving in from the right with tremendous power to offer a deep tube ride.
Like Uluwatu, surfing in Keramas takes place over a reef, meaning waves form over a solid base and are generally very consistent. So as a beginner don’t let the thought of a reef break put you off – Keramas Surf Camps are always suitable at high tide!
