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.

A lovely beach with good surfing. Plenty of surf boards for rent and a no hassle when it comes to laying on the beach and enjoying a cool drink. If you do not want to rent a beach chair, move a little further down the beach and lay your towels down . Plenty of parking for motorcycle or car. There... More

I am so pleased to say that the photo on this listing doesn't do Canggu justice in any way. You need to spend time in Canggu, there is so much beauty. For this my first trip I decided to keep it simple by sitting and watching a stunning sunset while eating BBQ corn and Bintang Raddler, then eating more BBQ... More

A nice unpretentious hangout, which is the perfect place to learn to surf if you don't already. Super cheap to rent boards and a big enough break to cater for the 100's people out at any one time. Surrounded by a few cool bars (Finns, Old man's) and good restaurants a short walk away (ex machina, Betelnut). I could spend... More

We had much fun on the beach with our bodyboards but trying to surf was out of the question. The waves are close by the beach already very high and powerful so we stuck to our bodyboards. There are almost no hustlers on the beach and it is relatively quiet. There are a lot of dogs but they are sweet... More

the wave here holds its shape well considering its a open beach break. on the bigger days , its a difficult paddle. there is a few places to rent boards - so you see alot of begginers in the water but food , beer and plenty of places to visit on the beach.

Too many tourist people, most of them drinking in the bars wich are located right at the entrance. There is a lot of traffic also wich make this beach "stressful" and dirty.

Is perfect for learning to surf. In the parking there is a place for board rental and you can take some classes. Here we met our dear friend and teacher "adi". If you want to learn to surf, this is your place.

I love my beaches and unfortunately this beach we went to in Canggu was not nice at all. I am very spoilt living in Western Australia with our beautiful ocean and gorgeous clean beaches and sand. Rubbish was all around us, ocean not inviting what so ever . Was glad to get off the beach .
