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.

It's so crowded for surfing, even when you get out at first light. And when it gets crowded it gets competitive. I had more fun at other breaks and the beach isn't so beautiful either.

One of the great beaches views in Bali. Especially for surfer who like challenges to fight with wind and wave, this place is the right one for you. Mostly foreigners there, drying their body by laying down along the beach. Seen local people played huge kites flying in the water with surfing board.

As Semanyak had become more busy Bali lovers know to find Canggu and its beach.Also Canggu gets busier as we compare through the years but that leads also to more bars and restaurants.Not only for surf folks but beach lovers van make long walks.

Really enjoyed this beach. Did surf lessons (ask for Peris) with my 8yr old girl and also body surfing. Note this is a real surf beach and not for toddlers or weak swimmers. Great surf scene best in Bali.

Went here for the day on a trip with family, was recommended by one of the locals and was brilliant. There is a massive bar/hut where you can chill and directly opposite is a surf school that allows you to rent a board for £15 for an hour and a half. I had IMAN TAUFIK and was so impressed with...

Unless you are a surfer or a stray dog Canggu beach doesn't have much to offer. The sand is polluted with constant rubbish and I didn't feel comfortable walking with bare feet. We used the Canggu Beach front as a quick path to get from Canggu (where our villa was) to Echo Beach. Canggu beach also seems to be a... More

Canggu beach is my favorite beach as it is only 3 km or so from my house and from my childhood I with my friends we used to go there to enjoy the long black sandy beach to be our playground. Today it still has the magic but not more a quiet fishing village like before. Now sprung so many... More

Simple town.. for now. developing rapidly. Great views of ocean and surf. Old mans bar is too easy to roll into after a day on beach. Sleepy town away from busyiness.
