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.

Sand is course and very dirty.Poorly maintained Shore.Restuarants and small retail shops remind me of Anglesea,Torquay & Ocean Grove etc over 30 years ago.Tourists incur Charges for Car Parking.

Canggu is great for surfing and its absolutely the hipster part from bali. More chillout and the evenings are quite, not many parties over there. A good break after the busy and super touristic kuta.

As my other half was unable to surf this year (injuries) and we had already booked, I was dubious about Canggu this time. We swam each morning early - the beach is black sand and typical of Bali. However it was refreshing and challenging at times with the shore break - but doable. We were the only swimmers amongst the... More

It's been a wonderful vacation in a surfhouse close to the beach, that is perfect for surfing and for a family with lillte children who wants to enjoy the beach life (playing with sand and so on). Unfortunately one of the last day someone stole our camera right in the middle of the beach when we were playing in the... More

Excellent place to surf, but not for swimming. Large abandoned hotel near the beach makes the place great for hangout and scenic photography.

Stopped by at this beach during noon time on a working day. it was quiet place except the sound of big sea wave washing the beach. There were about 2 dozen of people enjoying their surfing, and a couple riding horse and their camera man taking wedding photos. The beach is pretty nice. Wave is strong so may not be... More
