Overview

More
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.

Went there without any expectations. It was a surprise and I loved it. Black volcanic sand not very appealing at first sight. Wild but lovely. Great for surfing all day long. Different spots for different levels. It is not a fancy place for posh and...More

So peaceful and easy to find quiet time especially in the mornings. Great bars and cafes. A walk from our fabulous villa down a quiet street also filled with fab organic and healthy cafes and yoga studio. It’s so peaceful here.

Not a beach to lay at all day. You;ll be asked to buy a sun lounger, and there are nicer beaches in the region with golden sand. It's a surfers beach.

Canggu reminds me very much of certain beaches in Southern California (Venice). Lots of hipster (I don’t mean that in a bad way) food spots and stores, surfers, and a cool vibe. The food was consistently good. We’re very beginner at surfing. I’ve been both...More

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
