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

What a dirty smelly place. Lots of rubbish and dog poo everywhere. Sat on the steps by the beach but the smell from possibly a sewage pipe quickly made me move! Lots of surfers to watch which was the only fun aspect of the beach. There were a lot of dogs on the beach....some with owners but many without. I... More

Мы с мужем жили в пяти минутах от этого пляжа. Его еще называют Echo Beach. Океан тут скорее не для купания, волнение, по моим меркам, довольно приличное, зато радость серферам! Впрочем, и мы с удовольствием попрыгали у берега на волнах. Насколько мне известно, это место хорошо подходит для серферов начального и среднего уровня. Народу не много, тихо, спокойно. Песок черный... More

This area has great waves and breaks if you enjoy surfing. It is not a swimming beach. The unfortunate problem all waters around Bali have is the surmounting issue of trash. And it is too bad. Hopefully Bali and the surrounding islands will get his under control before more damage is done.

Canggu beach was once a beautiful piece of coast but it is now a collection of half demolished sea walls, ghost hotel developments and concrete. Talk about paradise lost! Go south to Batu Bolong for a nice beach /surf experience.

Clearly the surf is good but see a report in today's Jakarta Post. "Top surfing destinations in Bali are showing signs of pollution... Surfers with severely infected cuts, ears and eyes, and most alarming, chronic typhus..." When we walked on the beach there was barely a square yard without litter. Even the big hotels have given up on clearing the... More

Due to the high human traffic & lack of cleaning services, the beaches are generally filthy but for advanced level waves and a cheaper alternative to Seminyak, come here for sunset and dinner.

Canggu is a great place to learn how to surf and progress. Start at Old Man's for the nice slow waves and move to Echo for the fast steeper waves. The warungs on the beach have good food at good prices. Black sand and at low tide good for swimming. Be aware of waste in the water. Just like the... More

I love this beach, rugged with a beautiful black/golden sand Quiet with a good friendly local vibe! Enjoyed a dip in the ocean too. If your not a strong swimmer or surfer beware of rips (note: it's not in a popular tourist area so there can be some rubbish on the beach)
