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.

A bit overrated, the surf was nice and the place was popular with europeans. A lot of beach sellers selling bracelets and offering massages which can be a bit annoying. It smelt funny so we only stayed for a swim.

The beach is actually not too special, but if you are looking for a different atmosphere, and already bored with the beaches of Seminyak, Kuta what else .... So the beach is very suitable to be a distraction :) One with a swampy coastline and echo beach.

We hired scooters and took the drive up the coast to enjoy some beach that was far less crowded and we enjoyed a good surf and relax on the beach, would really recommend this for travellers

The beach has three or four great surf spots and also has some nice bars to hang out at. The problem is the beach has dirty black sand and there are strong currents that are not great for swimming in. Water quality has been questionable in some reports to, people getting sick from it.

A wide selection of reefs and breaks that allow you to get the most out of your trip away from Kuta. A good community of restaurants and proximity to Seminyak for a little city life make Canggu a great region to explore.

Fun beach and surf vibe with lots of great healthy cafes for post surf snacks. Old man's is good for happy hour also and has a nice market once a fortnight/month (not sure exactly how frequent :-)
