Balangan is located in Jimbaran area, only 30 minutes away from the airport. The area has a few of five-star accommodation nearby, and many great affordable surf camps. The beach has a consistent long left-hand wave as well as large and consistent left barrels, generally perfect for intermediate and advanced surfers. However, beginners are possibly surfing in the inside wall for practising their skills, but the outside wall is strictly for advanced and pro surfers. The best wave is from south-southwest swell, with size from one to four meters. Even though the site looks peaceful and charming, it has a few areas with sharp coral reef, so it is very recommended to use booties. The long white sand beach stretches for 200 metres is also great for sun-lounging and snorkelling. Best time to visit is between April and October. Expect crowds of mixed abilities during holiday or dry season.
