Some thirty or forty years ago, adventurous surfers began to discover some of the world’s best surf breaks in an off-the-beaten-track place called Uluwatu, in the southwest of Bali’s Bukit Peninsula.

They weren’t disappointed, and it didn’t take long for their surf secret to spread. Soon, adventurous surfers from around the world began visiting Uluwatu to experience iconic waves and a fabulous tropical island location for themselves.

Over time, a broader range of travellers seeking adventure and unique experiences began to arrive and with them, local entrepreneurs set up small accommodations, guesthouses, and places to wine and dine catering to the growing demand. Tourism infrastructure continued to develop and more upscale hotels, luxury resorts, restaurants, and entertainment options were established as visitor numbers climbed.
