Must know: Surf the reef on lower tides for the best waves.
Dreamlands has been re-branded as New Kuta in the last few years, and hosts huge tourist developments, including a nightclub and a golf course! It has an average beach break and a reef break offering soft left and rights.

A once picturesque bay has been severely over developed, and although is still a beautiful beach to visit, it has lost the charm that first inspired the name.

About Dreamlands

Dreamlands has a reef break toward the north of the beach that breaks both left and right. The reef is sand covered, and has a generous covering of water. It breaks best at lower tides, when the reef is shallower. Both waves peel for around 60m, but typically fade into the deep-water channel between the reef and the beach making it great on small to medium sized days for progressing beginners looking to hone their skills on a reef break.

There is a beach break to the south of the reef, that typically offers shore dump close outs but can throw up some great waves if the sand banks are in good form. Most surfers will opt for the other reefs on the Bukit peninsula, as they offer more quality waves than here, but dreamlands can be a great way to find a wave that is a little more accessible for everyone!

Best Conditions for Dreamlands

Dreamlands is off shore in SE to NE, making it a dry season wave. It breaks on all tides, but the lower tides offer the best waves for both the reef and beach break.

Swells from all directions get in here, but the reef is best on a moderate swell from the SW. Smaller swells tend to travel straight across the reef not really turning into anything more than a tiny peak that quickly fades into the deep channel.

Getting in and out at Dreamlands

Access to this wave is by simply paddling out from the beach between sets. Coming in you can just ride in over the reef at any tide. Be careful as sometimes there can be shore dump here, especially on larger swells and higher tides.

Getting to Dreamlands

Get to dreamland beach by following Jalan Raya Uluwatu towards the Bukit, and making a right hand turn onto Jalan Griya Alam Pecatu at the large statue of a Garuda, a large mythical Hindu bird. Follow this road towards the coast, and turn off onto Jalan New Kuta Raya. From here follow the signs to the beach parking.

Hazards to look out for at Dreamlands

This beach is relatively safe to surf in smaller swells, as the reef is very deep. Be careful on larger swells as there can be shore dump on high tide.
