The first activity you’ll want to consider doing in Canggu is surfing. Batu Bolong beach and nearby Canggu beach are popular surfing spots, and Old Man’s beach and Echo beach are also superb. Canggu beach is the best choice for taking surfing lessons because of its rock-free, sandy bottom.

Surfing lessons and surfboard rentals can be booked in the Canggu beach parking lot at a cost of around 50,000 Indonesian Rupiah ($4.95 AUD) for a two-hour rental. Two-hour lessons with a helpful instructor will run you about RP 350,000 ($34.60 AUD).

There are also a lot of accommodation options well-suited to surfers such as Premier Surf Camp, Koa D’Surfer and Big Brother Surf Inn. 

In terms of accommodation, Canggu has a range of options, from the abovementioned surfer-oriented hotels to relaxing holiday villas. Slightly off the beaten track next to Canggu are a number of holiday villas, available for under $130 AUD per night. The Taman Baru Bali villas are also a splendid accommodation option (if you are looking for something a little more high-end). ......
