SURFING AT DAJUMA

Among our beach activities which cover swimming, fishing, snorkeling, diving, kayaking, sailing, SUP, bodyboarding, there is one which is particularly appreciated by our guests: surfing. Why? For 3 main reasons: the West beach of Dajuma is just ideal to learn. The waves are not too strong and the sandy beach is never a problem when you fall down, which is frequent when you start this demanding sport. The second reason is the proximity of a world class surfing spot called Medewi, situated a few minutes from Dajuma. Last but not least reason, is the presence of our surf instructor Jupri who will take care of you throughout the learning process.
No reason why you should not try during your next stay with us!

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 INITIATION AT DAJUMA

With our partner FoolMoon and under the guidance of our beach supervisor Jupry (left on the picture), many guests choose Dajuma for their initiation to Stand-Up Paddle. Why is it so? Just because the waves on our beach are ideal to begin this demanding sport. And when you feel your practice OK, you can surf a step further, on the famous Medewi surfing spot that can be seen in the background of the picture. Ready for a trial?

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!
