Medewi Beach is one of the premiere surf spots in Bali. Located just a few minutes from West Bali National Park, a stay in Medewi allows you access to the best surf and the best wildlife in Bali. Some of the animals you might see are black monkeys, barking deer, wild pig, iguana, python and green snake, along with 300 species of birds. You can take an organized trek through the park with a trained guide who can point out some of the many wonders of the tropical rain forest.
As for surf, Medewi has one of the longest left-handed waves, which is best to catch before the wind picks up around mid-morning. The beach looks out on the Bali Strait, and it is said that the strait was created by a mythical king who used only one finger to gouge out the land, allowing the sea to rush in.
