SEA ACTIVITIES AT DAJUMA

Because of its unique location straight on the beach, Dajuma offers a variety of sea activities. On top of the list, of course, comes surfing with the famous Medewi spot next door and its long left hand wave. Fishing offshore with the local fishermen is another one particularly apreciated by our guests. Bodyboarding in the waves is very easy to practice and brings a lot of pleasure to everybody from 7 to 77 years old! Stand-up paddle, sailing and kayaking are also 3 ways of discovering the sea in a different way.
On the picture, for their first time in Bali, Ludwig and Vanessa from Germany during their 7 nights stay with us, did some excursions to explore West Bali and decided to try our sea kayak. They enjoyed a lot!

SWIM ON WEST BEACH

We sometimes read reviews stating that it is difficult to swim in the sea around Dajuma.
We have 2 main beaches: on the East side, waves and tides are often strong and only local fishermen, knowing perfectly the tides, can swim in this area to catch lobsters.
On the West side, on the contrary, the beach is well protected by the cape and the waves are just ideal for swimming or practicing sea sports such as body boarding, SUP, surf, kite surf, sailing, kayak.
But of course, like everywhere in the world, it is not recommended to swim in the sea when the weather is stormy, which sometimes happens in the year. To help our guests to safely enjoy sea sports on this West beach, we installed flags which color indicates the status of the sea: yellow means OK, red means Danger. Moreover our beach supervisor Jupry is always happy to help you to go to the sea in the most friendly and safe way.

SUP and sea kayak : how to enjoy West Bali from the sea

Sea kayak is a new activity in Dajuma which completes the already existing sea activities such as the now famous Stand-Up Paddle (SUP), surfing and body-boarding.
Born in Hawaï in the 1960’s, SUP became popular in Bali because it is relatively easy to practice compared with short surf boards . Many of our guests enjoy this relaxing sport activity on the West beach of the resort.
Now they can also enjoy our 3 seats sea kayak and go paddling around Medewi cape. But be careful : contrary to what is believed, sea kayak is a real sport very demanding in terms of effort to deploy!
