Canggu Beach, Canggu

3.3
#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.

  • Good perfect beach to catch waves on sand bottom. Number of different peaks to be able to catch waves until tired. There are enough people in the water but in general waves for all and good atmosphere. I I install there on my trip to bali by being quiet, having good beach clubs and good and cheap accommodation. Very desirable

  • The beach is behind a pub and a temple. There are sun loungers and umbrellas, and rental of surfboards. The surf is rough and there is current. The beach is dirty.

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.
