Canggu Beach, Canggu

3.6
#1 of 51 in Outdoors 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.

  • Good for walking along, and surfing but not swimming due to strong rips. A few local night bars have opened up along the beach next to Fins beach club.  more »
  • A few days to Canggu, the city itself is too busy and not worth the effort, on the other hand the beach is very beautiful! We enjoyed this two afternoons. Nice beach bars, high waves and a sunset to never forget!

  • Welcome to this beautiful beach!! Amazing waves for experts and beginners!! Canggu is one of best place to surf and relax on the beach!! Amazing sunsets guaranteed and nice bars and restaurants on the beach that makes delicious smoothies and nasigoren!! When go to Bali come to this beach!!
  • Really nice place for surf beginners. The food is very European there so you won't be able to feel the true spirit of Indonesia
  • Very beautiful beach 😍
  • I loved the beach. It is a black sans beach but black sand is not visible everywhere. Also there's a high tide during the day so when it settles in the evening only then you'll be able to notice rhe black sand. People are very lovely here and you'll find 100s of surfers surfing in the waves of the ocean. There's a singing program everyday in the evening in at the beach and 100s of people come there to enjoy as well as relax. Beach is really long and has good views. It's a nice place to spend entire evening. There are many shops where you can eat your dinner and drink juices as well as alcohol.
  • Great for surfers not for swimming.
