Canggu Beach, Canggu

#1 of 7 in Parks in Canggu
Beach Nature / Park
Surfers love the rolling waves of Canggu Beach, a 8 km (5 mi) stretch of black volcanic sands broken up by the occasional small river. Grab a board and tackle the surf yourself, or kick back and enjoy the show. From renowned and challenging reef breaks to more accessible swells, the beach offers something for surfers of all levels, though the strong currents pose a hazard to all who enter the waters. A string of villages along the coast service their respective section of the beach, providing a handful of cafes, bars, and vendors selling beers out of a cooler directly on the beach. The laid-back surfer atmosphere, and the lack of ideal sunbathing and swimming spots, keep this stretch relatively free of the hustle and bustle of Bali's busier tourist beaches, leaving you to explore the rugged coastline in relative peace. For travelers who use our custom trip planner, Canggu holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Canggu Beach and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

Where to stay in Canggu

Private villas dominate the accommodations in Canggu, with prices ranging from economical to almost unbelievably expensive. The priciest options occupy prime beach space and have views of the sunset, but you can find decent hostels and other budget accommodations if you're prepared to stay a bit farther back from the water. You'll almost certainly be able to find accommodations on arrival to Canggu. However, if you want to avoid paying a premium, it's best to reserve your room in advance.

  • The beach is probably fine for surfing but you have to ask yourself a few questions- what's in the dirty water that drains into the ocean all day long? Why can't the locals and the hotels help these p...  more »
  • We stayed a week in an air BnB villa. Was only 150 metres to beach but not once did we swim or surf. The surf was to big for our little fella (9) and I can't say the beach was appealing at all. Echo b...  more »
