Bali - Where is best for surf and nightlife?

Hi,

I'm spending a week in Bali in July and am looking to find the best spot to stay that has great surf and the best nightlife.

Any recommendations? Would also be good if it were a good base to explore some of the rest of Bali too

Many thanks, Neil

Kuta and Seminyak for both surfing and nightlife.

The best surfing is around Ulluwatu which is approx 30 mins drive from Kuta but no night life there.

Best bet is to stay at one of the beach hotels along the Kuta - Seminyak strip. You have access to has surfing and nightlife and can easily do day tours. What is your budget ,age and what type of nightlife do you like?

Make sure you do a day trip or spend a couple of nights in Uluwatu for better surfing though.

If you want to surf and party then Kuta/Legian is the best place although the surf may be a lot better in the Bukit area which includes Padang Padang, Dreamland and the famous Uluwatu. Anyway you can easily hire a driver and get down there from Kuta. Make sure you take a day trip to Ubud - the cultural and artistic centre of Bali. The scenery and the terraced rice paddies along the way are simply stunning! Have fun and be careful not to drink the local rice wine or arak, 25 people have just died from drinking it as it contains some form of poison.
