Balian is not considered a major surf destination in Bali, so it is quite possible that you will score it uncrowded. It breaks as a peak over a mixture of sand and rock, right in front of a peaceful river mouth. The lefts are usually better, however when everything lines up, both will barrel on the inside section.

Balian is better on a smaller swell as it is quite open and will often have a wave when everywhere else is flat. It's not the place when there's a big swell running. There will be a lot of water moving, making it quite dangerous.
