    Survivor guide: Surfing in Bali


    A tropical island retreat with some of the world’s most stunning beaches, Bali is a surfer’s paradise. If you’re lucky enough to be planning your next holiday and you’re off surfing in Bali, here are some safety suggestions to reduce the risk of travel accidents and holiday injuries.

    Staying safe when surfing in Bali

    Bali is a popular long-haul destination for British holidaymakers seeking sun, sea and sand. It’s also a great spot to enjoy some quality surfing, regardless of your ability and level of experience. If you’re eager to try surfing in Bali, here are some top tips:

    • take some lessons if you’re a beginner or you’re a little rusty
    • stick to designated areas
    • pay attention to warnings from lifeguards and emergency services
    • check the weather forecast
    • try not to surf alone
    • avoid going out too far
    • know your limits: if you’re not an expert, don’t try and attempt tricks performed by the world’s elite surfers

    Avoiding holiday accidents in Bali

    Wherever you choose to holiday, you should be wary of potential holiday accident hazards. Although Bali is a beautiful place with low levels of crime, there is always a risk that something could go wrong, so try and bear these pointers in mind to ensure you leave with the best memories possible:

    • avoid carrying large amounts of cash and valuables around with you
    • take care around hotel swimming pools and supervise children at all times
    • keep to safe, secure beaches and watch out for warning flags, which suggest that it is unsafe to swim
    • ensure that any food you buy from street stalls, cafés or takeaway outlets is cooked through to prevent food poisoning; take extra care with chicken and seafood
    • drink bottled water
    • take care when driving abroad; driving in a foreign country can be very different to driving at home, so go steady and avoid road accident hazards

    Claiming travel accident compensation
