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.

The rubbish made the beach totally unappealing and smelly. There are a few nice bars along the beach for sure, but as far as beaches go.... nothing to write home about

First beach we went on Bali. Nice surprise. Dark sand, great waves and perfect for a stroll until Seminyak. You can walk for hours and there is a great choice on spots were you can eat and drink. If you see the La Laguna bridge,...More

It's not the best beach we spent most of our time at the Lawn Beach Club. Free to get in but you are obliged to buy a drink from the bar at least

The sand is black, and it's not the cleanest of beaches, but maybe we are spoilt in Australia. I think there are far nicer beaches in Bali, saying that the surfs great and some great cheap little restaurant shacks

As with almost all the popular beaches here, they are flooded with people. Too many for my taste. Not fun to surf here as there are simply too many fighting for the smallest waves. Go to another island in Indonesia for better surf experience.

I love hanging out at this beach. The surf seems pretty good for beginners. Always good to grab a coconut and hang out in the sun for a while.

I loved it, sunsets with a roasted corn on the cob and a large Bintang to wash it down and a stroll on the sand......life was made for these moments. You can walk a long way on the sand, just be sure to keep yourself...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
