Type of break:
– Right hand river mouth with a reef/rock bottom
– Left hand sand bar with a sand bottom
– Left hand reef break
There are the 3 main breaks at Canggu but there are also a few more options in the area easily accessible from Canggu. Or a short drive north / south. On small days in the waist to head high range there are waves to suit every one. But as it reaches the head to double head high the right hander at the river mouth turns on and can really pack some punch. Likewise with the Sandbar and Left hand reef break right in front of the cafe’s.
North: North North East. Canggu can be pretty much surfed all year round. During the dry season the early mornings have the best conditions before the ESE – SE Tradewind kicks in. Wet season, anytime the wind is relatively light.
Usually Canggu needs a bit of water so around mid to high on the run in and then high to mid on the run out.
This place can get pretty busy through the dry season but get up early and with the right conditions you should have a ball.
Anyone know if berawa beach gets good and how far it is to walk from berawa to to main spots at canggu?
Berawa is a 750 meter walk east of Tugu paddle inside reef on an outgoing tide to catch the rip …. its OK but more of a shore beachbreak most of the time
Is Canggu worth planning a surf in the wet season?
tip top says
how far is the left sandbar from the left in front of the warungs,
certainly is if the conditions are right 🙂
around 250mtrs give or take
Hey fellows.. I was just wondering if there are any decent waves close to legian??
there’s a lot of good beach breaks up there and if you look down to the south you’ll see the Outer Reefs 🙂 Canggu in the other direction
Thanks for that mate. It’s my first time over there and looking forward to it.
Thanks again man
Hi, I am going to Canggu next month and considering staying at “Puri Dajuma Beach Eco Resort” or Echoland B&B”. Are either of these close enough to a good break and if not any other recommendations?
Hey there, quick question. Would be worth while hiring a car ourselves or use a driver to get around Bali, especially going to Canggu and Uluwatu.
Depends how use to crazy traffic conditions and suicide drivers ? plus cops, petrol and finding your way
drop me an email
hey there,just wondering if canggu rivermouth is south of echo beach and south of oldmans? also where is brawa beach? thanks heaps
Nah it’s the other way round, but those waves of Brawa and Old Mans are pretty ordinary waves, very popular with the Euro sector, mini mals, sups……

Hi, how is the crowd around canggu in july?
Canggu has a pretty steady crowd all year round
How many People does this mean? And it’s a beachbreak, isn’t it? So you should have different breaks or not?

Hi there, I am planning to go Canngue in the end of Oct. Is it a good time?Heart there might wind. And can I rent a sup there? Or any sup spot there?
Hello there, I will be in Bali from mid October till the 25. I was last year In June and took 4 days of lessons and managed to advance catching the smaller waves and the rarely a head high one. Could some one please shed some light on what beach would be appropriate during mid October to late October. Is cangu a good place?

Hi, how are the crowds and wave in february?
Just wonder Does anyone do surf trips North of Canggu, are they any waves worth visiting there?
Hey there, great site! Just wondering what the waves are like along the stretches of beach around Seminyak/KuDeTa area. Coming over at Easter but only for a week, more of a family holiday so limited wave hunting time. Appreciate any info. Thanks 🙂
should be something along there to have some fun on Ian
Heeey, going to Canggu in july, just wanted to know if its more beach break or reef break?
I’m looking for beach break for a non-advanced surfer! Would love some advice/info.
Hi how’s it going, where is the best spots for surf in December, looking at canggu , keramas, or nusa Lembongan thanks
Come and stay / surf with baliwaves and you’ll get to surf those locations and a lot more 🙂
Great site guys! Any ideas on some spots in Bali for an intermediate surfer, coming back from injury, to be clearer, not a beginners wave but something fun and not too hahardcore? Thanks!
whats best sandbar around canggu?
Where can I leave some things if I go surfing at old mans. Just getting there by taxi.
Where to leave things safe in canggu while surfing
In one of the warungs, if early early morning do not take anything of value and stash your bike keys
Thieves in the Canggu / Sandbar area have been rampant for years and with all the new construction workers camped right there near the car park make sure you leave nothing of value in your car or under your bike seats
I would like to rent a board for about a month in Canggu, do you guys have any place to recommend? I’m a beginner, thanks!
Head down along the beach in front of the Sandbar at Canggu and find Barrack Warung they have rentals there on the beach

Hey…..heading to Canggu in just over a week, for a week…staying in villa about 800m from Echo Beach…hopefully only a 10 minute walk. What sort of conditions can I expect in early October in terms of wave size. Not sure whether to take 6’3″ bigger board or settle for 5’10” Hypto Krypto as more of an all rounder. And from Echo Beach is it much of a walk north or south to find other peaks? Cheers….
Hi there, I am heading to Bali to advance my surfing skills, but still have no idea where to go. Ive been surfing for a year, 7ft hybrid, but I’d still call myself a beginner. Where would you recommend to go for an easy 2-4 ft wave, but away from people with foam boards? I’d really like to progress from beach to reef breaks, if possible. Thank you!
My mate & I are going down to Canggu in September & we’re mini mal/long board beginner surfers.
How is the surf condition In September? Is Canggu considered West Coast Bali?
Hope to hear from you soon! Cheers! 🙂
