Salt Gypsy and the Boyf relished a quick sojourn last week to the Island of the Gods aka. Bali. It was so nice to not chase waves  – sounds weird I know but when that`s your day job it can be a good reprieve to enjoy alternative radness….like eating yourself silly with good food and carrot-ginger-orange juices, making the most of cappuccinos and coffee shop hunting, driving scooters, sleeping in, window shopping and getting your own pair of super-rad surf leggings made up. A perfect SG holly-day.

While in Bali we stayed mostly in Canggu with a couple nights of clifftop luxury thrown in at Bingin. 

Canggu Guesthouses we rate:

Berawa Beach House – +62 081 236 066 979 //

Owner – Wayan, another lovely guy and young family, very close to Berawa Beach

Putu Guest House – +62 081 916 417 874

  8. Hi Salt Gypsy! I love your blog! Would you recommend anything for a surf enthusiast over Christmas week in Bali? I’ll be staying at Voyager Creative right across from Deus Temple! Cheersss

    • Hey Zelda, awesome you`re coming to Bali – you`ll love it! Canggu is a great place to stay with a few beach/rocky reef options for surfing all within 5-10min drive. When it`s small you can head up north to Balian and Medewi and the Bukit is always a rad spot to check out – quite different from the rice paddies of this area. East Coast is the place to be surf-wise in the rainy season and we`ve already been doing some missions over there and having fun waves. Ubud and Bali`s interior is another region you should do a couple of days checking out as well. Have a wicked holiday!
