Pura Vida Adventures is excited to offer two weeklong surf camps in Bali in 2023! For many people, surfing the waves of Bali would be a dream come true. With PVA’s May 27-June 3 co-ed surf camp and the June 10-17 women’s only surf retreat, you can make that bucket list wish a reality!
You will travel to not just one but two breathtaking locations well known for their epic surf breaks. The first stop is Como Hotel in Canggu on mainland Bali. Then we head to the Indiana Kenanga Hotel on the neighboring island paradise of Nusa Lembongan. In addition to surfing our hearts out in warm water waves, we will snorkel with manta rays and turtles over a kaleidoscopic coral reef. Dining on gourmet cuisine and enjoying tropical sunsets at beachfront bars are a daily luxury.
In addition to surfing, there will be excursions to dramatic Hindu temples and the beloved sanctuary Ubed Monkey Forest. You’ll love exploring the colorful history and culture of Bali. Bali is the mecca for gorgeous handcrafted textiles, silver jewelry, and almost anything else you can imagine, so save some time (and luggage space) for shopping on this vacation!
Volcanic black sand beaches, Hindu temples, vibrant cafes, hip bars and friendly waves make Canggu the perfect base for surfers to explore magical Bali. We’ll be staying at a premier location, the Como Hotel. This resort is directly on the beach overlooking the famous longboard wave Old Man’s. Between our salty sessions, you can watch the waves from the resort pool while listening to the cool sounds of acoustic musicians and sipping on a dragon fruit mojito. You can’t beat this incredible location! It has everything you could want: endless waves, nearby temples, Indonesian markets, and a resort oasis where you can relax and unwind from an adventurous day.
During our stay in Nusa Lembongan, we will make our home at the luxurious boutique hotel Indiana Kenanga. This truly is a luxury island-life location with a Michelin-star restaurant, full spa, and gorgeous pool. Life is simpler here, with the relaxed vibe of eat, sleep, surf, chill and repeat. The white sand beaches, stunning turquoise water and friendly locals are sure to quickly steal your heart. We’ll snorkel at the island’s pristine reef (home to an abundance of tropical fish, turtles and manta rays!) and SUP on crystal clear water at sunset. And each day, a charter boat will take us out to the island’s best breaks for unforgettable surf sessions.
Tanah Lot Temple is one of Bali’s most important landmarks. It is famous for its unique offshore setting and sunset backdrops. An ancient Hindu shrine perched atop a dramatic rocky islet, Tanah Lot Temple is simply among Bali’s not-to-be-missed icons.
The snorkeling off Nusa Lembongan and Nusa Penida are well known for being home to some of the most diverse reefs on the planet. With a vast variety of tropical fish and coral reefs and the chance to swim with manta rays and turtles is a breathtaking experience.
Watch the sun melt into the ocean while gliding on water. We will be SUPing at sunset off the shores of Nusa Lembongan, which is the perfect vantage point for exploring the island and the ocean below.
Pura Vida Adventures will provide comprehensive, hands-on daily surf lessons for each level of surfer. Video analysis of your surfing is included to get your surfing to the next level as quickly as possible. Surf equipment includes soft tops, high-performance epoxy, and fiberglass surfboards. We will travel to different surf breaks throughout the week via van and boat. A PVA rash guard is provided!
With 3-nights accommodation at the Como Hotel and 4-nights accommodation at Indiana Kenanga Hotel, this will be a vacation to remember! These locations have a beachfront swimming pool, restaurant/bar, and oceanfront lounging area. There is a full-service spa, and PVA provides one complimentary therapeutic massage. Restorative yoga classes will recharge you. Also included are 24-hour concierge service from our attentive camp host, bellhop services for your arrival and departure and daily maid service.
We will enjoy three healthy, gourmet meals each day, with customized cuisine provided for any dietary restriction – vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free, lactose-intolerant, etc. Most meals are at the hotel’s beachfront restaurant and several will be at the best Balinese restaurants in town.
In addition to daily surfing, there will be snorkeling excursions, beautiful stand up paddle boarding tours and trips to local temples.

5 stars! “Another unforgettable trip! This is my second trip with a Pura Vida Adventures and it was everything and more. You know you have had a great adventure when you are still reliving the trip and feeling the high a month after you are back. This time it was in Bali and everything was spot on. Due to all the research done by Pura Vida Adventures and Victoria Ross it was a trip of a life time. Add to that it was a great group of people and you have got a perfect time!” ~ Kathleen
