Bali is the Aussie summer hotspot and it’s easy to see why. The tourist town of Kuta teams up bargain hostels and laid-back beach life with an extremely lively club scene. The backpackers come flocking.
If you’re a beginner surfer, barter down one of the local surf schools for a few hours of tuition; just be careful of the other boarders out there. If you’re a bit of a pro you’ll want to head to Dreamland. It’s a beach every bit as beautiful as the name suggests with powerful waves that, no matter how experienced you are, could sweep you off your feet. Be careful!
