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.

Popular surfing beach with decent breaks. More accomplished surfers go outside while the inside is popular with those learning to surf and surf schools; can be busy as a consequence. Super cool vibe though.

The entire Canggu area is still relatively less crowded and commercialised than nearby Seminyak. Worth visiting and taking the slightly longer trip. Fewer shops selling touristy stuff, and many more small boutiques and craft shops that are worth checking out, especially if you are looking...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
