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.

Lovely beach

This is a great beach and a good spot to join the locals in the evening for sunset when food stalls pop up.

This beach at JL. Batubolong is a great surfing beach but not a safe beach for kids and swimming, very strong rips and try to avoid in wet season when debri is washed up onto the beach. Can get some amazing sunsets and eateries there!

This was the first beach I visited in Bali and was horribly disappointed. It was filthy. Garbage and feces everywhere. I stood in the water for just a few minutes and a plastic bag got wrapped around my ankle. Smells like durians and poo. I wouldn't swim here (strong currents) but I wouldn't surf either. I wouldn't doubt that cuts... More

If you're the surfing kind, you'll love some of the breaks, the warmer water and easy access to the beach, but from a swimmers point of view, the beaches on this side of the island are pretty gross to look at, dirty coloured sand doesn't look great..

I didn't feel the need to leave the Sanctuary but even when I did venture out it was close to everything.

long beach walks and jogging in the morning are great, sunsets in the evening stunning. ride a pushbike on the sand - or push it when it's to hard. warungs will provide food and drinks.

Love this place. Definitely a place for the surf boarders. A place where you can relax and chill. there is a toilet for shower but a simple 1. No hot water. If you have never surfed before, Please get an expert to guide you as the currents are very strong and it can pull you further out to the sea.... More

Beach, Surf and Laid back atmosphere. Great food, nice people and a fantastic value. Nice waves and a good place to get back on the board- but definitely no beginners place, as there is a beachbreak and rarely whitewater.
