Asia’s First Heli-Surf Safari at The Four Seasons Bali

Bali has long been a mecca for surfers, but the best waves are often the most challenging to access. The Four Seasons Jimbaran Bay and luxury surf operator TropicSurf recently debuted Asia’s first heli-surfing tour, putting G-Land, a mile-long coral reef break, famed for its perfect six- to eight-foot waves and long, spinning barrels, a 45-minute flight away. The private helicopter charter can accommodate up to four guests and includes one TropicSurf guide. Surfers and their boards are dropped right on the white sand beach, where a private speedboat awaits. After a long day of catching waves at this bucket-list surf break, guests fly back to the Four Seasons to watch their GoPro footage over cocktails. From $10,000 for four guests, including the guide; fourseasons.com.
