I reckon I know Bali pretty well. Been here 25 times now (yeah medal please). The amazing thing about this Indonesian paradise is that there is always something you haven’t seen before. Take today, a little exploring through a very poor village/bronx, fang right at the guy walking the cow, left at the chook fighters, then left past the ladies working in the quarry and you’ll discover a remote private beach only accessible by cable car. Sure you’ve gotta cough up $50 to get down the 200 metre high cliffs and enjoy a beach formed in a crack on the south end of the island – but when you get there – well – it’s another world. Blue water, frozen margaritas, gourmet pizza, Ibiza styled beats … ahh we’ve found a little slice of paradise – let’s call it Nammos (I’m not going to make it that easy for you to find – there were only 2 people on the beach when we rocked up).
Waves? Yep there were waves up here today. It’s packed though. 80 crew out at Ulus fighting over the ending section. Not my cup of tea. Get that at home in Bondi. Swell is rising fast and tomorrow should be cranking.
I have dozens of emails requesting info on Bali. Where to stay blah blah. I will release some notes of my findings when I get back. I’m currently stays at Mick’s Place in Bali – and it’s pretty amazing.
