Things to do in Canggu

  • To start with, have breakfast at one of the many restaurants, coffee shops, and try their smoothie bowls. After that, coffee with homemade cakes will be the perfect start to the day.
  • Next, enjoy a massage. The prices are very reasonable and well worth an hour’s complete relaxation.
  • Alternatively, join an early morning hike and experience the most amazing sunrise ever. My personal choice is the Mount Batur hike that includes the dip into the natural hot spring. It is also one of the more popular packages and includes breakfast. (You can book on the link provided below.)
  • Also, wait for the tide to be low and walk to Tanah Lot Temple. Be mindful of your time so you are able to walk back before the tide is too high.
  • By the way, you still have time to take in the street art in Canggu and enjoy a light lunch!
  • If you are up to horseriding, I suggest Langudu horse riding on the beach and in the rice fields.
  • Later, sip on a sunset cocktail on the beach as you watch the sun going down – have your camera ready!
  • Finally, try authentic Indonesian – local and high-end – cuisine. Some restaurants include cultural performances on specific nights, such as at Hotel Tugu on a Thursday night.
In conclusion, you’ve just had a full day of pure enjoyment, excellent sightseeing, and more, in one of our favorite cities in Bali, Canggu!

  • Nightly stage performances in dazzling Balinese dance costumes at the Kuta Theater is an experience not to be missed.
  • The art market is the opportunity to do souvenir shopping. Salespeople are rather pushy. In other words, you may have to count to ten a few times to keep your composure. 
  • Take a walk on the beach.
  • Visit the ancient Buddist temple, Vihara Dharmayana. Dress appropriately (no shorts) and switch off your camera in the prayer room, or relics.
