Very nice spot for surfers, yummy food and friendly staff. You can surf, join yoga lesson or enjoy the swimming pool. Cool music from the bar at night, perfect to relax during sunset. Affordable price for Bungalows and Resturant (don't miss Tempeh burger and fried banana!).

Nice place to see Bali in an unusual way. Affordable room rates and very good Indonesian foods. Perfect place to stay for surfing, yoga and do nothing. All the staff were nice and friendly. I recommend everyone to stay at Pondok Pitaya.
