Java West, Cove Beach Hotel

West Java, Cove Beach Hotel


Batu Karas offers fun, user-friendly waves but please keep in mind it doesn’t have the consistency of other Indo surf spots.If you’re looking for G-land style barrels or Mentawai-like perfection Batu Karas probably won’t suit what you’re after. THE POINT at Batu Karas Righthand pointbreak that rolls through a sand bottom bay in front of the hotel for up to 400 metres. The takeoff is up to you: fast and hollow beyond the point, or slow and easy at the shoulder section. After takeoff the wave mellows out with workable walls through to the far end of Batu Karas bay. THE REEF at Batu Karas Righthander with an easy takeoff that leads into fast walls unraveling over a lava reef. This high tide spot can turn on some real quality with clean walls to work on your top/bottom turn combo and down-the-line speed reeling to the beach for around 150 metres. Breaks from waist high to overhead. OTHER OPTIONS There’s other surf options accessible by car or boat if you’re up for a bit of adventure. Plenty of beachbreaks nearby, and 40 mins drive from Batu karas is a lefthand barrelly reefbreak that works on small swells and is offshore with the SE tradewinds from June-Sept.
