About Turtles

Located on the Ujung Genteng peninsula, Turtles is a bowling and barreling left-hand reef that is compared to Bingin on Bali but can probably handle a bit more swell and slightly bigger waves. The take off is a ledging affair and the wave quickly spins out into a short bowling wall afterward. Barrels increase with a rise in swell. Predominant winds are side/on-shore making early mornings and evenings the best time frames. A short walk from well-known Mama's Losmen, Turtles sits off of a farm and is distinguished by rusting pipes and concrete where the reef meets the beach. Pull out of these waves before the final closeout section to miss both the pipes and the reef.
