Don't waste your time coming here, there are many other places to surf in bali.

1. The beach is full of trash and not esthetically pleasing, with dirty water from the river.
2. The vendors increase the price of sitting on their decapitated benches by 100% (if you're purchasing beverages from the vendor you should not pay for the benches per the local balinese) if you pay, you're a sucker!
3. There's a sewer drain leading into the ocean, right next to the over priced benches with umbrellas. I don't know about you but I don't want to pay to sit on the beach and smell sewage.
4. If you decide to come here, do not bring any personal belongings, it's not safe, lots of lurking eyes waiting for an oppurtunity.

Batu Bolong Beach is a great beach at Canggu, Bali, Indonesia. The beach is easily accessible by road, and there is a parking lot which charges nominal parking fee. The sand quality of the beach is superb. The beach is not crowded with people (like that of Kuta), and there are a number of local business that offers dining, surfing lesson, beach chair, etc..

Smells like sewerage runoff area. Black sand beach with quite dirty water and some garbage on the beach. Full of local sellers who all offer to rent and buy things. Forget about relaxing anything as they keep coming to harass with everything.

Surf is good, probably best in that side of the island.

This is definitely the beach you want to visit if you like surfing. Full of surf schools and bars overlooking beach and with a very busy vibe. People everywhere but not in a bad way just buzzy. Lots of dogs roam on beach which was lovely, but just watch where you walk incase of poop. Think it was about £5 to rent board or £15 for board and lesson. No need to prebook

Dadi Anwari - Fantastic surf instructor for beginner or experienced surfer. Kind and friendly, helpful, very safety conscious and knows exactly how to help you improve your surfing! Contact him on WhatsApp +62 855 1188 679. I can't recommend him highly enough. Works out of Edgewater Warung on Batu Balong beach.

This beach is really good for beginners like me. The beach boys provide surf lessons and board rentals at a reasonable price. If you there, go rent an umbrella and two chaise loungers. Highly recommended to just chill out! Good restaurants around that area too

This place is a zoo in the water and hectic at night. Some people look for a party, some people look for a peaceful get away. I suppose it is still pretty densely populated in Canngu, but there are many quiet spots to chill. I party enough at home, I don't really want to do it here. Great for many, not for me.

If you are into surfing, there are many surfing lesson places. Also a good place to sit and relax. Few bars with decent seating to view the beach and sunset!

This particular part of the stretch of beach was not too impressive. Im sure its good for beginner surf lessons but the sand is rough and lots of pebbles in the water. At sunset we saw the low tide exposed tons of seaweed. Plus its very touristy. Just walk up to Echo or down to Berawa and youll find much softer sand.
