Canggu Beach Attractions

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.

Pererenan and Seseh Rice Fields

Bordered by the rolling waves of the Indian Ocean and flowing green rice fields, most of the villages within the Canggu Beach area offer magnificent sceneries.

Surf Jam Festival Bali

Meet up with likeminded people (mostly Russians) who manage to mishmash surfing with something akin to Comic-Con, into this annual surfing event held since 2012 on Balian Beach, some 90 minutes’ drive from Kuta. The event is usually held around the month of November. While the main surf competition features shortboard and longboard highlights, which gained approval by the Russian Surfing Federation, among the Surf Jam Fest’s other spectacle is a Fun Contest, where participants not only throng to the beach with their best boards, but also in crazy and unthinkable costumes.
