Pererenan and Seseh are two closely adjoining beaches in Canggu, which are only separated by rivulets flowing from the rice fields’ irrigation systems of the villages upstream. The beaches are within a 45-minute transfer northwest from the main hub of Seminyak, and only 10 minutes from Canggu’s Batu Bolong and Berawa. They are both favourite locations for horse riding tours, often as part of sunset beach rides.
Pererenan and Seseh are also among Bali’s favourite surf spots along the western coastline, hence the number of surf camps and resorts available, such as Andy’s Surf Villa & Bungalows and Tamu Seseh to name a few. The beaches offer similar seascapes, with dark grey and black sand, and flat glassy stretches at low tide.

There are three roads leading to each beach, mostly named after them: Jalan Pantai Pererenan and Jalan Raya Seseh, and Jalan Babadan in between the two. For a most scenic ride down to the beach, try Jalan Raya Seseh, as this route is bordered by expanses of flowing green rice fields on both sides. Here you can pull over anytime to see the local farmers tending to their crops from up close and breathe in the fresh countryside air. It’s a great stopover on day trips to Tanah Lot Temple, just 20 minutes north.
Being a surfing playground, the beach is home to the Seseh Surf Community, which fosters the surfing spirit among local youth (particularly budding grommets hailing from Seseh village), hold local surf competitions and raise environmental awareness through regular beach clean-ups.
Although pleasantly uncrowded, the waters at these beaches aren’t really good for swimming, and tides can be strong with undercurrents. There is a Balawista lifeguards’ tower onsite. Local cold drinks and Bintang vendors with parasols for rent sparsely dot the sand, but you can freely choose a spot and enjoy a sunset here without the common crowds of Bali’s southern coasts.
