If you like surfing Canggu is a good place to stay. The place doesn’t really have a centre but it is close to three good surfing beaches: Batu Bolong beach, Echo Beach, and Pererenan Beach. Echo Beach is the most popular spot for surfers. Here you can have a nice drink with music on the beach for a good price and after surfing you can have a barbeque meal while watching the sunset. The parking fee for Echo Beach is 2.000 RP.
The main tourist shopping place is the Canggu Deli. Around this place are also some small restaurants. This place may be some kind of the center of Canggu.
Canggu is the newest quickly growing surf/party place after Kuta, Legian, and Seminyak. If you come to Bali not to surf or party these are not the places to be.
