The Canggu Area

Canggu is a very nice area but you must, must have a moped if you stay here. In Canggu you don’t walk in the same way as for example in Seminyak. There are too long distances in Canggu for walking, so it is definitely worth renting a moped and driving around Canggu.

There are many nice lunch spots and nice beach clubs that are must to visit, as well as the whole atmosphere here is very relaxed, something we appreciated very much.

Surfing in Canggu

You will be pleasantly surprised by Canggu, really nice to be here and you will wish you could have stayed longer in this area. The whole area appealed to tourists and there are many tourists and expats staying here who choose to stay for a longer period of time in Bali.

Everyone wants to go here and we can see why! This is the surf mecca for all surf lovers. If you’re going to Bali to surf, this is the place to hang out, hands down! The beach here has the most optimal waves for surfing but don’t worry, even if you don’t surf you can still hang out here.
