Guide to Canggu: Activities, Villa Rentals, and More!28 April 2020 by Ade
Canggu is the new Seminyak.
It’s a cool place to be, and more importantly, much cheaper. It’s becoming more and more popular among freelance travellers and digital nomads. Families who frequented Kuta, Seminyak, and Jimbaran are now looking for something new, and they are looking at Canggu.
Where can you stay in Canggu?
You can find a plenty of villas waiting to be occupied at very interesting rates. Currently in our catalogue, the two best villas at a strategic range between the serene paddy field landscapes and the beach are Villa Senyuman and Villa Maimun 1.
Villa Senyuman is a 2-bedroom, 2-story villa. It has a wide pool, fully equipped kitchen, open living space, garden and parking area.
Villa Maimun 1 is a 3-bedroom, 2-story villa sitting on 300 m2 of land. It’s perfect for larger families or friends looking for long-term holiday rentals.
The surfing beaches
Canggu has waves that accommodate surfers of all levels spread over the various beaches. If you are new to surfing, there are surfing schools and private instructors stationed along the seashore to help you to learn or get better at this exciting water sport. In the parts with more challenging waves, expert surfers gather for the surf season from May to September.
Even if you’re not into surfing, there are still plenty of activities to do on the Canggu beaches. You love food, swimming pools and music? Go to Tropicola Beach Club.
Pura Tanah Lot
Have you seen a painting of a Balinese temple surrounded by the sea with a sunset in the background? You won’t believe that it’s even more impressive in real life, this postcard view of the world-famous Pura Tanah Lot with a majestic sunset in the background.
The unique thing about this temple is that it is inaccessible most of the time due to the high tide. Certain weeks, even at ‘low tide’ the shallow path towards the temple is submerged a few dozen centimetres.
But unsurprisingly, the Balinese calendar has marked certain rituals to be conducted at the exact times the temple is accessible. Despite having so many visitors every year, Tanah Lot Temple remains one of the most mysterious and rather curious places in Bali. Be sure to check it out!
Where to shop and eat in Canggu?
Canggu isn’t the isolated coastal town that it once was. The town is abundant with restaurants, clubs, bars, cafes, specialty shops, and coworking spaces.
Throughout the entire length of Jl. Pantai Batu Bolong, you will find places to eat and shop, and you will never truly finish exploring the area as there are so many things to do. Check out the road, which ends on Old Man’s Bar, one of the best sunset spots from Batu Bolong Beach.
