Canggu Beach, Canggu

(2.9/5 based on 460+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • We walked to and around the Canggu beach every morning we stayed in the area - has a very different vibe to Seminyak and nowhere near as busy. Lots of Bali dogs to see in the area too.  more »
  • Actually I don't know exactly what he means to canggu beach canggu because there are several beaches, considering the address should I infer that the reference is to batubolog beach, very popular with young people and surfers, beach is not super equipped, nay but here young people have few pretensions and the climate is very friendly. Sunset is a show also after having enjoyed a breathtaking sunset you can dine in one of the many cafes along the road and pull up at night.
