Things to Do in Canggu Beach

What to See and Do in Canggu Beach

Canggu Beach is one of Bali’s most exotic yet easily accessible coasts, with grey to black sand, and a fine combination of rural village scenes with flowing verdant rice fields. It’s a great place to experience the best of both highlights that Bali is known for. Some of the different beaches in Canggu are also named after landmark sea temples that guard the coasts, such as Pura Batu Mejan, overlooking one of Canggu’s most popular surf breaks that was rechristened by wave riders as ‘Echo Beach’.

Other black sand beaches such as Pantai Nelayan are dotted with fishermen’s traditional ‘jukung’ outrigger boats, with local fisherman bringing in the daily catch in the early mornings. Canggu Beach is also a favourite horse riding area, with several stables available. As Bali’s densest expatriate community, among Canggu’s numerous highlights catering to an international clientele is the Canggu Club (Finns Recreation Club), filled with leisure activities. Find out about all you can see and do in Canggu Beach right here.
