For the Surfers

We are host to one of the world’s best waves, Occy's left. To maintain a surfing experience unparalleled in the world, we limit the wave to ten advanced surfers per day and it is essential to reserve your slot (max 1 per room subject to availability).

MAY TO THE END OF SEPTEMBER SEES MODERATE TO HIGH SURF. It is consistently in the 4-6+ foot range, with days where they can get into the 6-9+ foot range. It is during this time of year that it is possible to see the largest surf, with waves at Nihiwatu reaching a maximum of 12 feet. It is the peak season for surf, with regards to both consistency and size. The trade winds can pick up in the afternoons, so mornings are usually the best time to surf.

May and September typically have the calmest/most favorable winds, and July and August have the largest surf.
