Canggu Nightlife

Where to Go at Night in Canggu Beach

Nightlife in Canggu is lower key compared to its adjacent neighbours, Legian and Seminyak, where most of Bali’s funky bars and evening entertainment venues are found. However, there are great spots in and around Canggu that make good use of its increasing popularity as one of Bali’s favourite surfing destinations and with the largest expatriate community on the island.

Attracting wave riders paddling in after sunset, beach bars lining Canggu’s popular beaches such as Echo Beach are regular open-air evening haunts with cold beers and local DJs playing to crowds relaxing on the black sand. Other spots overlooking the coast of Batu Bolong have gained quite a following from people all over Bali, not just Canggu, looking for something different than what’s on offer in Kuta and Seminyak. Explore all the popular Canggu nightlife right here.
