Canggu Beach is North of Seminyak. It's mostly famous as a place for surfing with 2 famous beaches : Echo Beach, world class wave and Batu Bolong also known as Old Man which is the ideal spot for beginners, longboards and funboards.Those 2 beaches are reef breaks.The sand is black on the 2 beaches, but it's also a nice place to rest and watch the surfers.

In the past year Batu Bolong has became a super trendy place with many young European hanging out in the evening. The new athmosphere reminds a bit of Ubud, but with the surf as a background.

Batu Bolong has it all: Many healthy cafes, shops, surf board and motorbike rentals, spas, rooms for rent, warungs, ice cream, night clubs, convenience and drug stores and don't forget the beach! Probably the most popular beach in Canggu!

Lovely and clean beach however during the rainy season expect to see a lot of plastic trash wash up on shore.

The black sand makes for an interesting scene. The beach is far and away better than kuta's beach. Surf looks better as well. Good bars near the beach also!!

For surfers but also for just visitors wanting to have a relaxed day, you can enjoy it from one of the clubs or from the small spots drinking a coconut... worth to visit it :)

Okay so this beach would be good for surfing and nothing else AT ALL! It's filthy crowded and doesn't have any proper seating or spot for relaxation. I'm not a trendy or luxury loving kind of person. I just want a nice beach and a place to put my towel. This one is not it.

The staff here really know what they are doing . Visited a different spa and they couldn't compete to the competence of the staff here. Had a pedicure and foot massage - reflexology done , highly recommend this.
