Travel Guide To Canggu

Hipster hangs, gym junkies, surf-a-holics, cafe lovers, yogis and vegans all call Canggu home. It’s an eclectic mix of travellers all looking to party, eat, top up their tan and enjoy the vibe.

Let’s talk about Canggu, the hippest, hottest and coolest beach destination in Bali, packed with surf-a-holics, yogis, hipsters, gym junkies, digital nomads, cafe lovers and families. It’s a great eclectic mix of travellers. In Canggu, everything is good, and everyone’s cool! Whether you want to party, eat out, top up your tan, surf or enjoy the vibe. This famous beach town in Bali is lively yet laid-back, with many restaurants, spas, shops, cafes and markets to explore. Not to forget the epic beach clubs and lively beach bars. Canggu has something for everyone, located somewhere in between Seminyak and the famous Tanah Lot sea temple on the south coast of Bali.

Holy moly, where to start? Canggu has so much going on, but the following should help you kick-start your adventure.

Once, not so very long ago, Canggu was just a quiet fishing village that only a few surfers had heard about. It was a secret surf spot for those who know Bali well and travel there regularly for a surf holiday. Then, from one day to another, this quiet, beautiful fishing village turned into the next best hot spot on the island. Cafes and clubs were popping up everywhere, and the world slowly started to hear more about Canggu. Favourite among ex-pats, Canggu soon became as popular as neighbouring Seminyak with trendy hipster cafes, surf shacks, boutiques and hippy art markets.

The area of Canggu is quite stretched out, with the most popular areas being Berawa and Batu Bolong. Berawa starts where Seminyak and Batu Belig end, home to Finn’s Recreation Club, Finn’s Beach Club, Milk & Madu, Cafe del Mar, Vue and many cafes you’ll love. Batu Bolong is the lively trendsetting street that leads to Echo Beach, passing Old Man’s, The Lawn, Mason’s and more restaurants and branded shops. Pererenan is quieter but also upcoming, and in between, there are many secret hot spots, rice paddies, coffee hubs and yoga places.

Canggu is popular for families wanting a quieter, more relaxing holiday, groups of people who want to get away from it all and soak up the ‘what Bali was like 10 years ago ambience, digital nomads that want to sit in cafes the whole day working remotely and backpackers looking for cheap accommodation in Bali style homestays. Most people who come to Canggu prefer villa accommodation where everything is self-contained. Most Canggu villas have a chef, a private pool, housekeepers and Wifi, so you have everything you could want there. No need to leave the villa if that’s the kind of holiday you want.

Canggu for families

Canggu is a paradise for families! Kids are bound to have a blast, and parents will love to see their kids have a good time while they can also have fun and get a break from daily life. There are beaches where you can swim and surf, cool family cafes with excellent coffee, water parks, and many activities to do. Did you know there are many family-oriented villas in Canggu? Villas with kiddies’ pools, on-site playgrounds, toys and bunk beds? If you’re travelling with kids, you should really check out these Bali villas! Everyone will love swimming and splashing around in the pool from morning till evening. If tired of the pool (not that that’ll ever happen), take them to the beach where they can run on the shore, build sandcastles or even go for a surf lesson. But that’s not all there is to a family holiday in Seminyak.

Here’s some inspiration on things to do with kids in Canggu:

Finns Recreation Club

Finn’s Recreation Club was invented for families and is popular among ex-pat families. The place features a waterpark, tennis court, kids’ club, bowling alley, gym, spa, and trampoline bounce centre.


Parklife Bali is the latest hot spot in town, a beautiful family park with rice field views located in a quiet, unspoiled area of Canggu. There are indoor and outdoor playgrounds with slides, swings, bouncing castles, toys and more. There are also guided kids’ activities, including storytelling, face painting, treasure hunts, etc. The staff is dedicated to making kids have the time of their lives. Parents can relax on bean bags and enjoy the rice field views. There is a fabulous cafe on-site to get some delicious food and drinks. Make sure to pack swimwear for the kids to play with water, fountains and sand.

Bali equestrian centre

Pony rides, grooming, cuddling and more, kids from 3 years old and up will love spending time at the stables of Bali Equestrian Centre in Canggu. Kids from 7 years old can go for a horse riding adventure on the beach and through the villages. The centre also has a swimming pool, restaurant and playground, making it even more lovely for families.

Surfing lesson

If your kids love surfing or want to try something new while staying near the beach, then Canggu has some great waves at Old Man’s & Berawa Beach. More advanced surfers, girls and boys, can go surf at Echo Beach and Pererenan Beach.  Canggu is a surfing mecca, and you will soon see why surfers from all over the world flock here to surf near perfect beach breaks. You can hire a surfboard for Rp 200 000 for 2 hours. That’s just $20!! Or you can go for a (family) surf lesson with one of the surf instructors on the beach. We recommend ​Thumbs Up Surf and Bali Local Surf School if you want to be sure of safe and fun surf lessons with experienced teachers.

Tamora Gallery

Shop and play at Tamora Gallery in Canggu. Tamora Gallery is a shopping arcade with fabulous cafes, designer shops, a large open-air playground, and a skate bowl. A great place to come down for a coffee and some shopping without worrying about the kids getting bored. There are also weekly events, from night markets and food markets from the afternoon till late evening to movie screenings and special kids activities on Sundays.

Beaches in Canggu

Canggu has volcanic black sand beaches with perfect surfing waves for both beginners and pros. There are gorgeous sunsets to be seen almost every day, and many beach clubs where you can chill out with sunset drinks, good music and laid-back vibes.

Echo Beach

Echo Beach is the most famous beach in Canggu. It offers perfect waves for surfing, a relaxed vibe and breathtaking sunsets. There are also several beachfront cafes and restaurants where you can enjoy a meal or a drink, including Echo Beach Club and the boho-chic La Brisa.

Batu Bolong Beach

Batu Bolong Beach is another popular beach in Canggu, situated near the Batu Bolong Temple. This beach in Canggu is usually packed with surfers, as it’s also a great surf spot for beginners. Batu Bolong has a vibrant atmosphere with many beach bars and restaurants, including The Lawn and Old Man’s. The sea is also great for swimming during low tide. There are also regular beach parties, events and live music performances.

Berawa Beach

Berawa Beach is popular but less crowded than some other beaches in Canggu. At the same time, there are famous clubs in this area, too, such as Finn’s Beach Club, Atlas Beach Fest and Cafe del Mar. If you’re a keen surfer, Berawa has some great waves for an early session and is popular for the late afternoon paddle. Follow this up with the must have coconut juice on the bean bag!

Pererenan Beach

Pererenan Beach is a more desolate and secluded beach in Canggu. It’s known for its rugged beauty, black sand, and mesmerizing sunsets. Great for sunset beach walks! The waves here are suitable for experienced surfers, but it’s not recommended for swimming due to strong currents.

Shopping in Canggu

There is no shortage of shops where you can do serious damage to your credit card.

Canggu is ideal for shopping. There are now quite a few new boutiques and shops along with the Batu Bolong and Batu Mejan areas (look at Flvx & Friends, Suennoaj, Earth Circus, Tropicana, Vissla & Asmara) catering to all tastes, mainly clothing, surfwear, and jewellery. There are daily markets called Love Anchor in the middle of Jalan Batu Bolong ( about 750 m from the beach ), which are worth a visit for souvenirs and typical market stall items from local vendors.

Some of the stuff is pretty good, actually, and it’s really easy to find as there’s a huge sign outside. There are also some decent homewares shops throughout Canggu, such as Bungalow Living, Canggu & Co, Cove Island Essentials and The Jungle Trader in the Berawa area. Canggu also has some fairly decent shopping for the girls as there are now (recently built in the last 12 months) boutiques, jewellery, surf & swimwear stores just off Batu Bolong as you head to Batu Mejan.
