Active vacation in Indonesia - things to do, entertainment and nightlife

Indonesia is a surfer's paradise. The island state is surrounded by water on all sides. You can find waves here at any time of the year. They are suitable for both beginners and experienced surfers. This is due to the difficult terrain of the bottom and coastline, the high level of tides, and the fact that the Islands are in the path of a swell (a wave formed by a storm or a stable wind system). Bali Island is the most convenient for surfing. This is due to the well-developed surf infrastructure here, unlike other Islands. The east coast is most suitable for surfing in Bali. The rainy season from November to April is the best period for surfing.
