10 Things to Do in Canggu That You Shouldn't Miss

September 3, 2017 Enriqueta Cusson

Canggu is a coastal village and 10 km beach on the south coast of Bali, Indonesia. It lies approximately 10 kilometers north of Kuta, and presents a much more relaxing atmosphere of dining, cultural and beach activities. The main Canggu streets are Jalan Batu Bolong, Jalan Padang Linjong, Jalan Batu Mejan and Jalan Tanah Barak. Along Jalan Batu Bolong you find the temple of the dead, Pura Merajapati, and the Pipitan Cemetery. Along the beach there are two main temples, Pura Batu Bolong and Pura Batu Mejan, which are both hundreds of years old and were initiated for building by Dang Hyang Nirartha. The Canggu area used to have scenic views of paddy fields and coconut groves but current rapid developments are quickly replacing these traditional views with private villas.

Lovely, healthy horse's, carefully chosen to suit our riding experience. Beautiful ride out along the road, then out across the rice fields too the beach...so much fun, with these gorgeous, well behaved horse's. Our ride back took us through the streets, such a lovely part of BALI. Waiting for us were nice cold towels and a delicious snack.

Tanah Lot Temple

Tanah Lot is one of the important directional temples in Bali. The temple is located on a rock just offshore. It is said to be the work of revered 15th century Hindu priest Nirartha and forms an important element of Balinese spirtualism and mythology.

Reviewed By fouad n

To my opinion, Tanah Lot and Uluwatu temples are among best sceneries of Bali. Though there are some limitations to see inside the temples, I think one should respect these limitations and enjoy the rest. Before the entrance is there a good market especially for women to buy souvenirs.

I was not s​​ure what to expect from the retreat having never been to one in Bali before. I wanted a mixture of relaxation, meditation and creativity which is exactly what I found! Emma our host was warm and accommodating at all times and ensured we were all looked after. There was a balance of yoga, mediation, breathing practice, relaxation and creativity, with the fantastic mandala workshop and raw chocolate class. The staff and whole team were all super friendly. I would recommend to anyone wanting to get away from their busy lives to find some inner peace in beautiful Bali.

Petitenget Beach

Pantai Peti Tenget ( peti tenget beach ) is a beautiful white sandy beach situated in north of Seminyak Beach. The white sand stretch 3 km from kuta Area has made it as a fascination for tourist to visit this place. Peti tenget Beach is favored by the great wave that is ideally for Surfing adventures and also a lot of horse ride tour here.

Reviewed By R Layne H - Memphis, Tennessee

The Petitenget Beach is a public beach accessible by a pedestrian bridge across essentially a big gully. That bridge is 100 meters or so away from the Petitenget Temple that is now closed for restoration. Limited parking is available in a controlled access parking area. The beach in this area is wide and shallower into the ocean than other sections. It appears to be in a higher risk tsunami area if there's an earthquake. The crowds at the beach were small in early September were increasing significantly as I walked in a southerly. The surf in the less steep areas seemed more aggressive and many red flags were present which limited the areas where one could swim safely. The texture of the sand is very fine but with specks glistening brightly in the Sunshine. If I wanted to sunbathe on the beach instead of walking on the beach, the areas further to the north and south would be my preference. Beachside cafes and hotel restaurants are present up and down the beach. People are walking, swimming, boarding and shelling in a few small areas; you'll see some kiting too. Friendly, uncollared dogs are encountered too, sometimes with owners, with the ones I saw having collars. Don't worry, they're not bothersome.

Busy popular beach
A wee littered but responsibility is with the locals there and others who drop rubbish
Surf particularly good for those that are not beginners and who at times have patience as some days limited waves and others plentiful!
Lots of places to eat and drink
