I love waves, ocean, sea air, salt water.... But when I visited this beach was a festering pit of rubbish and plastic and river debris (including everything you could think of). Washed up on the sand, creek beds and circling around in the water. Did...More

If one loves surfing, this is the place to be. You can laze around on the white sand beach or can sleep on the decks on the beach and enjoy some mocktails or juices and can also read a book. A must visit

We went to Seminyak for the first time in 5 years on this trip and won't be back. The traffic and the people, it's busier than Kuta. Canggu on the other hand is brilliant, it's chilled, you can walk across the road without risking death,...More

If you park before you get to the beach carpark and walk to the beach you don't have to pay. Otherwise if you park in the beach carpark or close to the beach the cost is 2,000 Rupia
