One of the world's best lefts
Legendary left-hander! Awesome surf camp with Aussie managers! G-Land Joyo's Surf Camp is set amongst a national park called Alas Purwo and is open March to November. This incredible surf camp has been constructed in the jungle, just off the beach and directly in front of the famous section of reef known as Speedies.
G-Land is a Mecca for travelling surfers. Surf-hungry adventurers from all over the world flock to the Javanese jungle each year between March and November to sample G-Land's jewels. During these months the swell is generally constant and flat spells are rare, which makes G-Land one of the world's most consistent breaks.
Travelling to G-Land is easy. The minibus driver will pick you up from your hotel in Bali just after midnight. From there, it is an overnight drive to Gilimanuk and a car ferry to Grajagan. Next is a 45 minute speedboat ride, arriving at Jungle Beach Village in the early morning for breakfast. Return transfers from Bali are included in the package price.
A surf guide's perspective (by Dave Scard)
More than just a name or a place, G-Land is a haven. So close but yet so far from Bali, G-Land is a magnet for swell and is definitely not overrated. The set up in G-Land is simple and the relaxed atmosphere and pumping waves make for an experience like no other surf trip. Once you arrive at this all-inclusive camp, you don't have to worry about a thing. The biggest decision of the day is choosing what board to ride and your Joyo's surf guide can even help with that.
G-Land Jungle Surf Camp has cottage-style rooms, all very comfortable and with private bathrooms. All rooms have twin beds with mosquito nets and Balinese furniture. The holiday accommodation in G-Land has come a long way since the early days and is now even suitable for adventurous non-surfing partners! Envisage a basic yet comfortable surf camp with a variety of accommodation standards, great food, Aussie surf guides and surf out front... all set in the remote Javanese jungle.
Pristine National Park
Set in a world heritage listed national park, G-Land is simply one of the most beautiful places in the world to go surfing.
