Airport Rights Surf Spot in Bali

Surfing at Bali Airport Reef

Bali Airport Reef, also nicknamed 'Airport Rights' and 'Airport Lefts', is a popular surf spot in Tuban, approximately 4 km south of the main strip of Kuta Beach. The surf spot’s name refers to the waves that form on both sides of the westernmost end of Ngurah Rai International Airport’s landing strip, which juts around 900 metres out to sea. It’s great for beginners during smaller waves, but can build up to provide serious barrelling action for pros during south-easterly trade winds. Boat access is recommended, as these surf breaks are roughly a kilometre out from the shore.

Ride the Waves at Airport Rights

The Bali Airport Reef surf breaks are nicknamed as though facing the shore from out at sea, or how airplanes would approach the runway as they land. Airport Lefts, north of the landing strip, offers a hollow left that’s best with southern swells. Lefts is the longer among the two breaks, sometimes available up to 2 km north from the strip, which usually roll on for around 70 metres to shore. Airport Rights, on the other hand, spans only a kilometre long, with fickler 1-2 metre waves. Both breaks are usually best during the dry months, between April and October.

As a beginner, you can enjoy the considerably rideable waves near the shore. For the greater swells of up to 2 metre, you can try beyond the reef, which would require a rented boat ride out. Rights is most accessible from the beach of Kedonganan, while both are reachable if you’re staying at a hotel in southern Kuta or Tuban, such as The Patra Bali, the Holiday Inn Baruna Resort and the Sari Segara Resort. Crowds are unpredictable for both breaks, but it’s not as busy as Kuta most of the time, and the view of landing jets while you’re surfing can be amazing.
