Attraction details
Owner description: 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.

The rain and the wet season made the west coast very polluted. We had to travel to the east coast to surf / swim.

Here is the beach for surfer. Period. I could not swim for a whole month. Then raining all garbage came visible all over. Not a place for non surfing people.

Crowded beach but worth to be out there to catch the waves. Best time I had was during sunset.. totally blown away by the beauty. 3 minutes walk to a bar and other restaurants.

Not your typical tropical beach that looks like paradise, but there aren´t crowds, and it is pretty quiet. Good for beginner surfers as there are many breaks around, even though the crowds can be huge ate sunset, which is also worth watching.

Everyone always talks about the sunset in Seminyak but it is the same here in Canggu. Even better as less crowded. Love the beach and the waves here. Very relaxing!
