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.

Shops very focused on the under 30 surf women and guys, A few good trendy cafes and only a couple of madssage places. very spread out so lots of walking with little shade as the road is through rice paddies.

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.

Echo Beach was a delight to visit, but we didn't swim in the water. We found Canggu overall a nice place to visit, especially with the cafes and beach clubs. However, we were robbed in Canggu whilst walking on the street to dinner one night. We were 4 women walking to the main strip to have dinner when 2 teenage boys drove past and snatched my friend's bag that she was holding against her chest. They grabbed her, tore her dress and shoved her to the ground. They almost rode over the two women in front of us and then rode off.

Whilst this is expected everywhere in the world, we never thought it could happen to us, until it did.
Be smart, be alert and be safe.
