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

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.

Lots of great restaurants and cafes surrounding it. Different vibe to Kuta/Legian/Semiyak, more surfy and villagey. Love Canggu

There are many surfing beaches in Canggu - Pererenan, Echo, Batu Bolong, Berawa... They are all black sand, not so developed as other beaches in Bali and have great surf. Not so good for swimming unless you are experienced.

Surfer are welcome here! There are so many surf board rentals and there cafe too. This beach is good for surfing, but not for beginner I think. There are some solid rocks make surfing a bit dangerous if you're a beginner. Locals are everywhere too but not as crowded as Kuta and Seminyak beach.

Went for a walk along the beaches of Canggu... dark brown sand..I think we are spoilt with the beaches in Australia, as a comparison.. saw horseriders & lots of surfers, with good waves..so this is the main attraction... parts of beach very littered, and a few bali dogs to beware of... not one of my most favourite places
