This string of dark sand beaches and rural rice paddies are located about 20 minutes north of Seminyak, half way to Tanah Lot. Canggu is widely used to refer to a long coastal stretch running north from ... Read more
the village of Berawa (just north of Seminyak) to the village of Cemagi (just south of Tanah Lot) taking in Echo Beach, Seseh and Pererenan along the way. Inland from the beaches it is still overwhelmingly rural, but is being developed quickly.

Weather

The best time to visit Bali is in the summer, when temperatures stay in the low 80s (20). But summer visitors shouldn’t expect a secluded island vacation: this lovely time of year attracts honeymooners, surfers ... Read more
and families from around the world. If you’d rather trade fair weather for an island all to yourself, visit during Bali’s humid and rainy monsoon season, when you can upgrade to a nicer hotel for a lower price. Keep in mind that Bali is home to a large Hindu population, so religious holidays like Galungan and Nyepi (the Balinese Day of Silence) might impact vacation plans, though it will also give you a glimpse into the island’s rich culture.

If you are young, and you are going to Indonesia. I feel Lombok is by far the most amazing place. Not very touristic, it has lots of young surfers, which makes going out there incredible. I would love to go back.

Really cool up and coming part of Bali, with nice young crowd and surfing. Beach not the prettiest but vibe more than makes up for it

As Seminyak gets more crowded, more and more villas and hotels are opening up in Canggu. This is a good option to stay. It is less developed so you can probably find a villa which has both beach access and padi field views (best of both worlds)

You need to know, in addition famous for its scenic rice fields were nice, Canggu also has beautiful beaches and along the way Canggu to Tanah Lot, there are many culinary Babi Guling (pork roll), Lawar Kuir (a type of duck that is then processed with chopped vegetables) and local cakes named Klepon, you should try it.

The beaches around this area is not so great (and may not be swimmable due to strong current) but the rice field view was great. This is also another area in Bali that you can explore and see how the locals live, and if you are lucky, you got to see one of those religious ceremonies.

Not much here - which makes it perfect. A great place to hangout for Sundowners is the Beach House @ Echo Beach. Reasonable prices away from the scene in Bali. For Maximum value - gather a few friends and rent a villa nearby. Surfers have loved the place for years, it's easy to see why.
