About Nyang Nyang

Nyang-Nyang offers short, punchy right-handers that break over coral into a channel in small swells and at high tides when the water floods over the reef. At lower tides and larger swells the waves will break in the channel and Nyang-Nyang will become a close out. With Indian Ocean swells hitting this coast with out anything in the way, Nyang-Nyang can have some power and unpredictability to it. The wave will come out of deep water, offering a rippable wall and the odd barrel on take-off when the tide swell and wind all line up which is not common.

Best Conditions for Nyang Nyang

Nyang-Nyang breaks from waist high to a little over-head, on mid to high tides. It prefers early morning light winds in the wet season, or uncommon northerlies as any trade wind will blow it out. This wave is typically not crowded as most people tend towards the more reliable Uluwatu, and the walk tends to put people off.

Getting in and out at Nyang Nyang

Access Nyang-Nyang by walking down the 500 stairs that weaves their way down the steep cliff face to the open fields below. Walk across the fields, watching for cow paddies, and make your way 100m up the beach to the right. You can paddle out using the channel. Find a shady spot and post up for the morning is the best option, as the walk back up is best only done once….

Getting to Nyang Nyang

Get to Nyang-Nyang is by turning off Jalan Raya Uluwatu Pecatu onto a small, dirt road that is signposted and negotiating your way to the edge of the cliff, it can be difficult to find. Once at the end, park in the paddock, and you can see the wave at the bottom of the cliff and a little to the right. Be sure to give the ladies in the small warung some business in exchange for parking.

Hazards to look out for at Nyang Nyang

Beware of strong currents, and freak sets coming straight out of the southern ocean. Tiger shark sightings do happen around here.
