Teens are the perfect age to appreciate beautiful Bali. Even just watching a sunset with the cheering crowds on Kuta Beach is unforgettable, and no one is ever too cool not to be amazed by sneaky monkeys at Ulawatu Temple or the snaking rock-bound staircase down to Padang-Padang Beach.
Time to make some memories? Here are just 10 teen-shaped Balinese adventures to astonish your favourite travelling companions, and maybe convince them you’re still fun to go on holiday with after all.
Pick just about any beach on Bali’s south coast and you’ll find a surf school. Famous and famously crowded Kuta has the motherlode, but for teen first-timers, Legian Beach – just a little further west – is the one to beat.
Rip Curl School of Surf does beginner lessons here, supplies equipment and, when kids are ready to move beyond easy beach breaks, takes them along the coast to Canggu to brave the reefs at Batu Bolong and Tugu.
