Bali re-opening for tourism!


May 12,2022

“After 2 years of being pretty much closed for tourists, the Indonesian government has reopened it’s borders for international tourism to resume.

WaveHaven Bali Bukit Surf Report -“

It’s been a long 2 years for everyone, but especially for the Balinese, a large majority of the Balinese population works in the tourism sector, and with international borders being closed for over 2 years, most Balinese had no income.

The pandemic is behind us, covid is here to stay and we learn to live with it. So in April 2022 the Indonesian government decided it was time once again for the world to enjoy the famous Balinese hospitality. The smiles are back on the faces of the local population here in Bali. Tourism is still only a fraction of what it was before the pandemic. But more and more tourists are making their way back to Bali.

If you are a surfer and want to enjoy Bali with the least amount of crowds, we suggest to make the most of the next few months were crowd levels in the water are still only a fraction of what it was 2 years ago. Swell Bali in Bingin is a good choice if you want to be close to all the action.
