About Dreamland

It's easy to see how Dreamland got its name. So many surfers from all over the world dream of coming to Bali only to arrive here and realize that the waves they were envisioning themselves surfing such as Uluwatu, Padang Padang, Bingin, etc. are super heavy and the reef is sharp as heck. For these surfers, the relatively mellow beachbreaks and rolling reef down the road from Bingin is definitely a Dreamland. These days, Dreamland has become a small town on the beach. There're plenty of cafes, beach umbrellas, surfboard rentals, local surfers, and tourists from all over the world.

During a small to mid-sized swells, Dreamland will break as a disorganized, rolling, outer beachbreak from mid to low tide. This is perfect for beginner to intermediate surfers, and it is common to see a crowd of longboarders and bodyboarders out there. On lower tides, there is a reform section on the inside of this beachbreak that can be fun for shortboarding, bodyboarding or bodysurfing. To the right of this beachbreak there are a series of rocks and clumps of reef that break in a semi-organized peak of lefts and rights. On smaller days these waves are nothing special, however, Dreamland is a swell magnet, and if there is a big swell running, and a low tide, the outer reefs at Dreamland can transform into some good, barreling A-frames.

To get to Dreamland: Coming from Kuta, go to the Bypass road and head towards Nusa Dua. A few kilometers down the road you will arrive at a turn off with a sign for Uluwatu. Follow this road through the twists, and up the hill to the top of the Bukit Peninsula. Continue on this road through the four-way intersection until you reach a huge development project. Pecatu Indah. You will see two amazing statues on your right. Follow this road to the bottom and look for the signs for Dreamland.
