Keramas currently becomes one of the World Surf League World Tour stops and also the best surf spots in the east coast of Bali. You will need an hour drive from the airport to Keramas beach. The area is more relaxed compared to Canggu and Kuta or Seminyak. Some five stars hotels and resorts can be found along this 10 miles black-sandy beach. A few modest surf camp also available near the beach and in Ida Bagus Mantra road.
During dry season, it forms a south-southwest swell and a northwest wind direction. The wave works well during all tides and stay consistent during a light onshore wind. However, during the rainy season, the east coast lights up with swell and creates a combination of deep barrel sections, carvable walls, and launch ramps that breaks over a shallow sharp reef (watch out!). The best time to visit is between April and October.
