Owner description: 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.

Due to the high human traffic & lack of cleaning services, the beaches are generally filthy but for advanced level waves and a cheaper alternative to Seminyak, come here for sunset and dinner.

Canggu is a great place to learn how to surf and progress. Start at Old Man's for the nice slow waves and move to Echo for the fast steeper waves. The warungs on the beach have good food at good prices. Black sand and at low tide good for swimming. Be aware of waste in the water. Just like the rest of Bali is Canggu unfortunately really dirty!

I love this beach, rugged with a beautiful black/golden sand
Quiet with a good friendly local vibe!
Enjoyed a dip in the ocean too.
If your not a strong swimmer or surfer beware of rips
(note: it's not in a popular tourist area so there can be some rubbish on the beach)

liked that it was not a busy commercialised beach - it felt very real and local. Disliked that it was in need of a bit of a clean up in terms of debris

Best beginner / intermediate surf spot. Go to Canggu Cafe after your morning session to grab a good, strong Bali coffee and some breakfast! Crowded during the weekdays from around 8am when the surf schools come in so try and get out there a little earlier! Ketut, a photographer, usually hangs out by the temple. Go talk to him before you head out on the waves if you want your moment to be captured on film! They'll either charge you for a single photograph or everything they get of you for the day.
