Canggu Beach, Canggu

3.6
#1 of 7 in Parks in Canggu
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.

  • Beach has a few cafes and restaurants and plenty of typical Bali on-beach facilities. Cunggu is great beach for surfers of all kinds. As it's away from the main Bali areas such as Kuta and Seminyak, it's not as crowded here. Try it once, I am sure you will enjoy it.
  • If you're looking for a nice quite beach with excellent wave.. you must visit this beach. The scenery and atmosphere of this beach is so quite and relaxing...
  • Very nice beach! Friendly surf instructors that sing and play the guitar. Lots of foods and drinks to buy. Sunbeds are a little expensive, I would recommend to just lay in the sand. Be careful to lay far away from the water because it can get quite high. Its very nice watching all the surfers and trying it out yourself. Lots of dogs running around and generally very lively beach but still calm enough to read and sleep.
  • sip Bintangs on the Beach relaxing. Heaven
  • Kind of dirty and full of hipsters and surfers which seem more interested to be recognised as one than really do surfing.
