“Great surf location”
Reviewed September 10, 2012

This is a great spot on the west coast of Bali to catch a wave. It's a really long but relatively slow break that makes for a long ride. There is a local board riders association and these balinese guys really know how to work this break. The trick is to be there for high tide. As the tide goes out the break becomes rideable but much smaller.

Take your booties as this all lands on rock and they are covered in sea urchins that will cut your feet.

The biggest issue here is the rubbish. Loads of plastic, old shoes etc all washed up on the rocks. Disgusting!

“Beware of the Medewi Mafia”
Reviewed May 26, 2012 via mobile

If you go there beware of the "surf boarders club" they intimidate you in to purchasing tshirt at around RP 200 thou. Ok not a great stretch for a westerner but you should know that if their activity and reasons to intimidate you for that amount are legitimate why don't they do it when the police are there? They are not local Balinese by the way, so don't think your contributing to the village good. Take only small change and hide any amount over 50 thou. Apart from the mafia, the surf can be great depending on conditions. Use the bungalows pool for 40 thou if your a surf widow! Restaurant with view pretty nice to sit at. Enjoy watching the fisherman.
