Surf in Canggu, Bali
You may have wondered why everyone talks about and wants to go to Canggu when visiting Bali. Read our article and you will definitely start to plan your next vacation to this amazing place.
In Canggu, you can select from an extremely large scale of surf beaches depending on your
needs and level. Each spot has its benefits, disadvantages, difficulties and traits. Let’s take a look at them.
Berawa is a perfect surf spot in Canggu for beginners and also for intermediate surfers. It’s a classical beach break with gradually slanting bottom. Here you can find both left and right waves which often reach the height of 3-8 ft. We love this spot so much!
- Batu Bolong
This spot is suitable for beginners and to take the first surf classes. The bottom here is sandy mixed with reefs and waves are only 1-2 ft high, mostly slow and long which perfectly allows learners to efficiently improve their skills and to practice special movements. It’s a really popular spot – thanks to its beginner-friendly features – so it’s worth arriving early and catch the mid tide.
- Old Man’s
Old Man’s is named after a bar nearby and is in the neighborhood of Batu Bolong.
Although, it’s a more challengind spot for beginners with its 3-8 ft high, faster waves which often rock further from the coast. It’s ideal for the fans of longboards and midlevel surfers who will enjoy the good swells.
- Echo Beach
Echo Beach is considered as the main spot and was the first favorite of Australians. It includes three similar areas in itself thus it’s easy to paddle from one spot to the other. There is a perfect reef-break with both left and right waves which hit a shallow reef and surfers can just go flat out. It’s best for advanced surfers and a common scene of competitions.
This is the last spot of Canggu also known as Stairs named for the stairs leading down to the water. It’s a reef-break and the bottom is a mix of sand and rocks, but the reef is quite shallow on the inside hence surfers must be pretty cautious where to go in and out. The right wave mostly attracts pro-surfers but the left wave can be suitable for beginners when the swell is small.
