Aura has an amazing location and staff that make the stay even better. The number of waves close to the resort is awesome with different setups. Flat day fun was always possible with staff sending us to the good spots. I would defiantly recommend Aura for any surfer looking for a great time in untouched Indonesia.

Did a solo mission to Aura Surf Resort in November 2016. This location is second to none with the peak directly in front of the resort and was never crowded. You could keep an eye on conditions an numbers and strike when the time was right. Even in November I managed to surf everyday as this place picks up any...

They have the best location on the whole island being right in front of The Peak and the beach also has other waves right on the doorstep. Amazing sunsets...

"Are you actually serious?" is the first question I posed upon myself, which in fact related to several enquires all at once like - "Is that surf for real or a FUTURISTIC HOLOGRAM???
