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.

Much better than the vibrant Kuta and Seminyak beaches. Batu Bolong is very attractive road and retains the spirit of Bali.

The sand is black but the waves, the wadungs and cafes are great. We were here during the rain season and loved every moment. it's a lot cleaner then Seminyak beach and the waves are better.

This beach (I think it is called Batu Bolong Beach not Canggu Beach) is a great place to hang out close to sunset time. It is also a spot for surfing. There is not much happening, just several chairs and umbrellas (plus several local ladies selling bracelets and saroongs), and people surfing, but this is probably why this beach is... More

This section of the beach is not well maintained, litter around just like at most places. Does not offer any services, except for the surf rental.

A great beach any time of day but particularly beautiful at sunset. Plenty of places to buy food and drinks along the beach and sit back and take in the view

We were staying down the road at Berawa Beach & decided to drive up to Canggu to watch the surf & sunset. The surf is excellent for board riders however for swimming it was a little dangerous as the surf was pretty big. We preferred Berawa Beach for swimming. The sand is black which is hard to adjust to after... More
