Bali was a mecca for surfers in the 70’s and still remains so to this day. It is however more touristy but that is to be expected because it is such a beautiful tropical island. The beaches are well worth not just swimming in but also walking along. So pack you swimwear, your sarong and your camera and you are good to go. You will meet lots of people wanting to massage you, braid your hair, and offer you all types of things. Some you may accept, others DON’T.
