Top surfing destinations in Bali are showing signs of pollution, with incidents of people getting infections after surfing the waves off the island’s southern beaches.
Throwback in 1970, one of the world’s most dependable surf spots in Bali. Expansive left-breaking wave located on the southwest corner of Bali’s Bukit Peninsula; the first in a near-endless chain of perfect Indonesian reef waves discovered by traveling surfers from the early ’70s to present day.
