Canggu Beach is North of Seminyak. It's mostly famous as a place for surfing with 2 famous beaches : Echo Beach, world class wave and Batu Bolong also known as Old Man which is the ideal spot for beginners, longboards and funboards.Those 2 beaches are reef breaks.The sand is black on the 2 beaches, but it's also a nice place to rest and watch the surfers. In the past year Batu Bolong has became a super trendy place with many young European hanging out in the evening. The new athmosphere reminds a bit of Ubud, but with the surf as a background.

Only for surfers

The sand is dark and the beach quite dirty. But perfect for beginner surfers. No long chairs going with bars, you must pay 60 000 rupies for 2h.

Canggu is a haven for Surfing. Lots of young people hanging out and riding waves. Families playing on the beach and beautiful sunset. Lots of local street food vendors and cold beers at Old Mans

We have been in past years but I think this will be our last trip to this place. It's now very, very crowded, very dirty and the traffic makes it a nightmare. We stayed less than a 100 metres from the beach in a lovely villa but we enjoyed our country stays a lot more. Many sites say Canggu is... More

Amazing beach, amazing waves, amazing atmosphere (Old Man's). If you're walking on the rock pools, be sure to put on some form of footwear. I saw a small flower urchin (red and white bristles) while walking. O.o

Good surf beach, good vibe at sunset, you can sit and watch the sun go down with a Bintang and a corn on the cob cooked on an open coal grill.

This is heaven for surfers. And for the ones who don't surf, hire a bed on the beach and watch everything that happens in the water.

We came to cangu with high expectations of a clean asian beach. We have never seen so much garbage in one spot. Literally thousands of pieces of plastic bags and even glass. Australian beaches are a credit to all Australians.

Visited the Canggu beach near Pura Petitinget on February 2015 , it was a very hot morning. Unlike other reviews here , we found that the Canggu beach was in a nice condition and relatively clean, so we went for a swim, well , maybe the filthy beach was in the different part of Canggu. Great beach for a swim... More
