Situated only a 15 minute drive from Seminyak, Canggu has fast become the spot to go for those who want a more relaxed experience than Seminyak but still want to stay close enough to enjoy everything that it has to offer. Cross Jalan Batu Belig and head west and you quickly find yourself surrounded by terraced rice paddies, leafy streets and a more village-like atmosphere. Up until very recently Canggu was considered a 'country area' known for its black sand beaches, array of epic reef breaks and slow pace of life. These natural highlights have now been complemented by an influx of very cool retail and food experiences being driven by the growing number of travellers who choose this as their Bali home. Best known for its beautiful villa accommodation and eclectic hipster scene, it is very popular with surfers, yogis and trend-setters alike.
