Canggu - Bali

Known as surfers central, Canggu is another awesome backpacker town on the south coast of Bali. Located just 10km north of Kuta, Canggu boasts great bars and restaurants and offers the perfect conditions for the more intermediate surfer.

If it is the waves you are after, but still like a beach scene with plenty of cool places to grab a bite to eat and some drinks, then Canggu is the place for you.  It’s not just the surf that Canggu has got going for it though. The incredible rice field views and the great accommodation, are just some of the other reasons visitors flock here. Much of Canggu features emerald rolling landscape that is typical to south central Bali, so the views are breathtakingly beautiful.

Away from the beaches Canggu is still a largely rural area away, but it is being developed and fast. So if you want to see Canggu before it ends up on too many people’s radar then now is the time to go. We hit up Canggu on Days 1-3 of Our Bali Experience and Bali & Beyond Tours as well as loads of other awesome destinations.

Tanah Lot & Royal Temple – On day 2 of our Bali tours we soak up some culture at the beautiful Tanah Lot Temple situated on a rock on the coast line, some say that it is the most Instagrammed Temple in the world. After this we visit the Royal Temple for more cultural insights.

Surf Lesson – Whilst here we will we hit the beach! We learn to surf in the morning with our awesome local instructors in Kuta Beach with often perfect conditions of 2-3ft waves for the beginners. Following this you’ll find a chilled afternoon on one of Bali’s most beautiful beaches and watching the sunset.
