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.

Lots of huge beach clubs and resorts together with some small place to get some cheap food or drinks. Beanbags or beach beds to sit in or lie on and an ideal place to see the beautiful sunset while everyone is in the water surfing....More

Not the best beach for swimming because of high waves,rocks and black sand. You will love it if you're into surfing. There's parties hosted on the beach which go on for all night and end at 4am, now those are What make Canggu beach legendary!!

The beach is quite nice but the water is dirty, the locals are very friendly, are lots of hotels and restaurants to eat at and surf schools and surfing but not suitable for kids. Strong currents.

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
