Canggu Beach, Canggu

3.5
#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.

  • 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.
  • The place to go if you have long hair, floral patterns on on your retro fish surf board, tattoos of symbols from contradicting religions and just need to get "that" photo for Instagram that will make everybody at home wish they were as cool as you
  • I was visiting this beach at 7 pm and there were some foreigners swimming. To me the waves are pretty hard so you're better not to swim. I met a few dogs as well.
  • Nice beach with good views, beach hotels food, drinks....
