lefts are better than rights and beware the waves can get fast .
You can park in the direct area, there's even a small parking lot (mark the word small), but its even better to come by bike (motorbike that is). If you would like to go for a walk or a tour : tanah lot is only 20 minutes away by bike and you can easily leave your stuff at the warung, they'll watch it for you .
They've got a well, so you can wash off after the surf. Toilet is also available . (good to know huh)
The atmosphere gets better if you go there occasionnally, its got its own locals and they're kinda sceptic when you show up for the first time, but then again, aren't they all over the world ? The warung has some basic food (being nasi, bami, eggs and toast, coffee, tea,...)and they serve it with a large krupuk on top and some spicy sauces . Its a chill-out environement, the beach and the reef are great to walk on .
My first impression, standing at the warung and overlooking the waves was : oh, this is not big, i can handle this . yet, do not be fooled, they look a whole lot smaller standing on the beach .Its a fun wave, that can power up and allows some fun tricks . The surf craps out if the wind gets too strong and might get crowded (20 to 25) during high tide and in the mornings . TIP : surf over noon, when everyone else is munching away .

Wave suitable for Longboarders?? - I am always mindful of surfing where your skill matches the conditions and a group of friends are heading for Canggu in Jan 2010 looking for a suitable, fun, lobngboard wave that will provide a bit of fun whilst keeping us out of the way of guys who really know what they are doing......any suggestions?
