This surf school is based in Kerobokan and has a team of professional instructors who deliver surfing lessons for adults and kids of varying skill levels. Classes by pro surfers Ryan Hardy and Michael ‘Eppo’ Eppelstun are also featured regularly through camps scheduled throughout the year.
Two-hour lessons typically include a pick up from your hotel, then off to the coast of Canggu. Safety briefs and warm-up sessions precede your lesson. You’ll learn the basics, and progress through all the aspects, from steering to crazy stances such as ‘drop knee’ or partly standing on your board.

Often referred to as ‘Pura Petitenget’ by locals, Petitenget Temple is a significant, centuries-old temple in Bali and one of the very few cultural landmarks in Kerobokan.
Somewhat overshadowed by the modern developments of five-star resorts in the area, this temple still remains an important highlight and a must-see, especially during its festive 210-day anniversaries and the traditional dance rehearsals regularly held by the locals in a communal hall nearby.

Primo Bali Chocolate Factory
The Primo Bali Chocolate Factory produces pure, high-quality, handmade chocolate from locally-sourced cocoa beans. The small artisan factory is in Kerobokan, just north of Seminyak proper. It was started by Pepe, a passionate Italian who works closely with cocoa farmers in the island’s central highlands.
Enter the small factory and you’ll be greeted by the amazing aroma of chocolate. A custom-built grinder that he designed works its way through raw, single-origin and seasonal cocoa beans. The beans are ground at low speed and low temperature, otherwise known as ‘cold processing’, which in turn maintains the full flavour of the chocolate while suppressing its acidity levels. You can sample the end products and buy bars and pure chocolate drops in various flavours. You’ll need to arrange factory tour appointments beforehand.
