In the last few years Canggu has developed a lot and new places emerge every second day. From the original favorite tourist areas of Kuta, Legian and Seminyak, Canggu followed naturally as we move West on the coastline and follow the beautiful beaches and surf spots. Canggu is now full of cool restaurants, cafes, shops, Yoga centres, it has an exciting nightlife and cultural scene and all surrounded by the ocean and rice paddies. Very close to the famous Tanah Lot temple and the hills of Ubud, Canggu is just in the right spot. So basically, you can find pretty much anything you need without being caught up in a crowd. Even if you want to do more shopping, you can go to Seminyak, which is just 30-40 minutes away by taxi or even less by scooter. Very close and easy.
Canggu is definitely the best area in Bali to stay if you are into surfing and yoga. There are some World-Class surf breaks in Echo Beach and easier waves perfect for beginners and intermediate surfers in Berawa, Batu Bolong and Old Man’s. Some Yoga studios and Surf Camps have been emerging in this area making the Canggu atmosphere very relaxed and cool.
Almost every evening, there is a party at different places. Some famous parties are normally held at places like DEUS Ex Machina, Old Man’s Bar & Restaurant, Pretty Poison and Sand Bar. This will be reviewed on the next post about Canggu Night Entertainment. Check it out!
