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.

I heard Canggu was a popular spot. Then, when I got there, I would have to add...Popular Spot if you like tourists. Also, the beach, although beautiful, is not maintained - lots of dog poo and general trash. If the Westernized business owners decide to...More

Nice vibe all along from Echo beach to Olds Man. Lot of warungs. Huge waves at Echo beach. Cheap food and drinks. DJ & live music on the beach at Sandbar.

Canggu is a nice beach maybe for Surfers but not as good as the beaches in southern Bali in Uluwatu. Canggu is a nice area for cool cafes and Restaurants and a relaxed atmosphere, but the beach is nothing Special.

If you park before you get to the beach carpark and walk to the beach you don't have to pay. Otherwise if you park in the beach carpark or close to the beach the cost is 2,000 Rupia
