Batu Besar translates as Big Rock. This friendly resort overlooks the world famous Turtles surf break at Ujung Genteng on the south coast of west Java.
This reef break catches Indian Ocean swells throughout the year. The resort sits 300m from the beach at the edge of the Green Belt zone. Three separate buildings house twin, double, and dormitory/family rooms (AC or fan), kitchen, restaurant and bar all set amid serene, cool and shaded gardens. It is surrounded by rice paddy fields and an easterly breeze keeps the climate pleasant throughout the season.
The staff has all been with Batu Besar since it opened in 1999 and the catering is the best around. Other surf breaks like Ombak Tujuh, are within motorbike access, and the white sand beach extending north from the reef is as spectacular as any beach in the world. Dont miss the gigantic sea turtles nesting nightly on this same beach and if you are lucky you can witness the laying of the eggs. This area is a designated National Park. The wave Turtles picks up a large amount of swell. However, on the small days snorkeling, swimming and fishing all along the coast are a great diversion; and the pristine area can be explored on motorbike where you will find some other breaks like Mamas.
Rates for staying with us at Batu Besar include the 3 delicious meals per day. You will not be short of fuel to surf all day during your stay with us.
Turtles is a nice left reef break that is very consistent for a lot of the year. Here you are guaranteed to get barreled. The wave is a perfect barrel right from the take-off.

Ombak Tujuh is located about 40 minutes by motor bike ride up the coast or a one hour local boat ride. It is located in Cibabi national park. Ombak Tujuh picks up almost as much swell as anywhere in Indonesia and really starts to do its thing once it hits 6 ft and regularly gets a lot bigger than this.There are a couple of other waves around the bay of Ombak Tujuh for those with a keen sense of adventure. These waves like "antfarm" can produce high quality waves yet are seldom surfed. Its very cool to take a beach walk late in the evening to check the turtles coming up the beach to lay their eggs.
Its also a good idea to watch out for turtles in the surf ...there is lots of them and they have a hard shell!
Most trips out to West java connect from Jakarta. We can meet you at your Jakarta hotel or at the airport if you want to head straight out to the south coast. It is a long drive of a few hours but well worth the trip to score some epic barrels with no crowds. Great place to chill and relax if the waves are small.
