Keramas Beach

Keramas Beach in Blahbatuh has hosted international surfing competitions in the last couple of years with limited facilities such as uneven road and no parking lots. On June 18–29, 2013, Keramas Beach was on the Association of Surfing Professionals (ASP)'s 2013 Men's World Champhionship Tour schedule as the Oakley Bali Pro.

Sports

In football, Bali is home to the football club Bali United, which plays in the Liga 1. The team was relocated from Samarinda, East Kalimantan, to Gianyar, Bali. Harbiansyah Hanafiah, the main commissioner of Bali United, explained that he did the name change and moved the homebase to Bali because there were no representatives from Bali in the highest football tier in Indonesia. Another reason was that local fans in Samarinda prefer to support Pusamania Borneo F.C. more than Persisam.
