What are the best surf conditions for Sawarna?
Gets good between waist high and triple overhead. We recommend riding a shortboard then step-up as the size picks up. This break is suitable for intermediate and advanced level surfers. The surf here is pretty consistent (6/10) and will get crowded at times (5/10). The best winds are from the Northeast. The best swells are from the South, Southwest, and West. Works on all tides.
We recommend wearing boardshorts or a bikini year-round. Water temperatures rise to 29 degrees in the summer before dropping to 25 degrees in the winter. See the temperature chart below for more data on this.
