I have been visiting Bali for 24 years and Canggu is my favourite. Much quieter than Seminyak & Legian. There is a little rubbish in the surf but from sunrise to well after sunset this beach has everything you could want from beach bars, good...More

Definitely not the best looking beach , a black looking sand , with rubbish through it , possibly black caused by the volcano ?. Water doesn’t look inviting like other parts of Bali. Had a few waves , hence what must be the big ticket...More

Nice place to stay if you wanna watch the sunset, people go here to surf too. We stayed at a beach front restaurant so we could watch the sunset without the hassle of where to stay. One downside is going and leaving here. There is...More

It is a great location to watch the sunset. It is also good for first-time surfers trying to just get comfortable with their board.

If you have visited Bali and not been to Canggu then you are kidding yourself. You must visit Canggu. It's laid back, its chilled and the sunsets match anything at Seminyak. The surfers are fun to watch and people visiting here seem to be reasonably...More

Seen many beaches around the world and cannot really understand why this seems to be popular. The amount of debris that has washed ashore and lack of softer sand which beach goers were happy to lay around in was astounding. The surf was okay but...More

One thing about Canggu Beach that’s worth the visit is the beautiful sunset. The wave is nice too, great for surfing. But the beach is not very clean, a lot of rubbish, plastics bottles everywhere...

Hi Sharon, We stayed in a private villa too as there is only one bigger hotel there at the moment. Canggu is more 'layed back' and not as hectic as Seminyak and Kuta - which is a nice change. There are some great places to... More

If you park before you get to the beach carpark and walk to the beach you don't have to pay. Otherwise if you park in the beach carpark or close to the beach the cost is 2,000 Rupia
