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. Plenty of nice restaurants are located a few meters from the beach.It's also now very popular to have dinner at Echo Beach watching the sunset. A few restaurants offer live bands, fish or meat barbecue.Very relax and usually good food.Just be careful if you come with taxi, the tranportation from Canggu beach is roughly twice more expensive than the way in,On the beach you can find mini mals or softboards to rent at the rate of 50000 per hour, but if you are looking for a larger choice or for a few days, please visit rentasurfboard.They offer rentals of any kinds of surfboards, mini malibus and longboards for expert surfers as well as beginners.Boards can be delivered to your villa or hotel for free.Also surf lessons or surf trips can be organized. « less

It's very nice but it isn't the kind of the beach to swimming and relax cos there are a lot of waves most of the time

We stood in Canggu village in a nice villa and went to Canggu Beach. We were very disappointed and we didn't expect a perfect beach. We were looking for a relaxed beach with a few people. The beach was very dirty, with rubbish from local people but also from tourists. The surfers like the good waves, but for the rest... More

Beach for surfers. Beginners can easily find surf instructers or play in the whitewater. All others find consistent swell. Lots of Boardsds to hire (Short, Long, Beginners). Small Bites, cafes and Restaurants avaiable. Not good for swimmers, nice to watch the sunset

Good sandy beach, a few sun loungers on beach or on grassed area just above the beach. Great for Surfing, swimming best when it is low tide. Couple of beach bars with food nearby

Great place to get some satay, grab a drink and watch the sun go down with some background music. Small markets. Thoroughly enjoyable.

Had a morning coffee at Ol Man's cafe here. It's always nice to chill and watch the surf. This is a great surf beach, plenty of boards etc available for hire, but not one that I would visit to swim to lie on the beach. Also thought the area was a bit trashy - more effort needed to clean it... More

Nice to take a walk when it's not to hot. Canggu beach is mainly a surf beach without much (sun-)bathing accomodation. There is often a lot of thrash on the beach left there by the tides and feeded by the rivers of Bali and Java. Despite the overpopulation and 9 million visitors a year there is no proper thrash collection... More

Volcanic sand beach which had quite some litter laying around. We found the other beaches we went to on our holiday much nicer than this one, although it does offer good conditions for sufers.

Lots of surfers and a few cafes (we tried a large fancy Grocer and Grind one which was nice but not cheap), black sand, more rustic beach for surfing and exploring rather than relaxing.
