Quick Canggu facts
Canggu is a sleepy area on the southwest coast of southern Bali & is about a 45 min drive from the airport. It is most famous for its lovely surf beaches & attracts a daily cohort of keen and very enthusiastic surfers. Echo Beach (locally known as Pantai Batu Mejan) is a beautiful black-sand beach with advanced reef breaks and seafood cafes overlooking gorgeous sunsets from high up. Other popular beaches include Old Man’s, Berawa, Seseh and Pererenan – all with their unique surf-breaks, vibe & all within easy access to Canggu’s main shopping & dining area
Canggu has increased in popularity over the past decade & it is now considered a trendy spot for surfers and bronzed yogis who enjoy the laid back culture, health-conscious foods at the local Canggu cafes and restaurants in the main area known as Jalan Batu Bolong.
Make sure you walk up and down this street as it’s a foodie and shoppers paradise. It’s where everyone goes & it’s packed as there’s a local market right in the centre known as Love Anchor. You will notice that Canggu is expanding rapidly with new cafes & restaurants opening to cater for the burgeoning tourist market.
Canggu has a number of culturally important sites, such as the Hindu Temple, Pura Merajapati and the Pipitan Cemetery. There are two main temples along the beach: Pura Batu Bolong and Pura Batu Mejan. Bolong is a breathtaking tourist attraction that sits on a majestic rock face in the middle of the ocean.
Canggu’s rapid growth over the last couple of years has seen a significant rise in the number of tourists which in turn has led to the development of some luxurious, family-friendly holiday villas to cater for this ever-growing demand.
People who are tired of the over hype and development of areas like Seminyak & Legian are now gravitating to Canggu as a new holiday destination where they can still see rice fields and green patches of land. It has a bohemian, hipster, friendly, eco-conscious attitude unlike any other area in Bali. This is what draws in the crowds and travellers who all want to be part of this vibrant & eclectic scene.
With lots of great restaurants, health food shops (where you can stock up on your muesli, vegan produce & organic food) or cafes serving the most delicious smoothies through to cheap eats on the beach; Canggu is the ideal place to hang for a day, week or even longer. You will find spending time in Canggu is just the tonic your soul needs to recharge & re-energise.
Things to do in Canggu
The surf breaks at Canggu are varied enough to keep any keen surfer happy for the day and are especially popular for longboarders & beginners at Old Man’s beach. For the more advanced hit the river mouth at Echo beach or Pererenan where the waves are famous worldwide. Make sure you come here in the morning when the winds are offshore – the best times are in the dry season from February – October.
On days off from the surf, there are a number of excellent restaurants, health food shops, day spas and cafes with an upbeat vibe that seems to surround Canggu. If yoga is your thing there are a number of yoga studios where you can stretch, meditate and practise your postures. If you’re a gym junkie then there are loads of gyms where you can go to keep off those holiday calories.
You can take the family to visit local sacred temples, have dinner at the seaside cafes as you watch the sunset or just people-watch at the famous Echo beach. To keep the kids happy there is always the Finns Recreation Club which has trampolines, massive water slides, a 25-metre pool and ten pin bowling. The adults can hang at the restaurant or get a daily pass and work out at their gym.
If shopping is more your thing, Jalan Batu Bolong has a variety of shops selling bikinis, surfwear, jewellery, clothing and nick-nacks. On the weekends there are farmers markets at Samadi Yoga & you’ll find the whole of Jalan Batu Bolong teeming with tourists having lunch or just parading up and down the road.
