Canggu: Our Favourite Places

Whilst the beaches of Canggu don’t match the likes of Uluwatu down south or off the mainland towards the Gili Islands, this beachside area offers something else.

Canggu is Bali’s epicentre of cool. A home for expats and influencers where Bali’s unique holiday flavour is experimented with and refined. This is the place to visit in Bali if you want to see to try the latest beach club, restaurant or concept cafe.

Sometimes you may feel like you are in Sydneys Eastern suburbs rather than Bali whilst you are here, but thats part of the appeal for some.

Here are our top places for teh area:


Where to stay: Theanna Eco Villa

Details of Theanna Eco Villa

Beautiful villas that are offered in Balinese, Japanese or Scandinavian style interiors. They have a 24 hour shuttle service that can drop you off anywhere in Canggu, free of charge.


For the best coffee: BGS Bali

Some of the best coffee we've had in Bali

Small coffee shop located on the main street in Batu Bolong. Easily the best coffee we have tried during our travels in Bali.

Beachgarden: Organic Kitchen

Street artwork and smashed avo on toast

Beachgarden offers vegetarian food. You can get all your healthy favourites here in a quaint setting close to the heart of Batu Bolong.


Vegetarian breakfast choices and exterior

Super popular concept cafe offering a huge range of breakfast options. A pretentious crowd and setting doesn’t defer from the quality of the food.


Our Favourite: La Bandida

Quesadilla and burrito

La Bandida serves up delicious Mexican fare in a cool, chilled out setting. The interior and vibe is unpretentious with beds and lounges to lay down on. There are daily specials too.

La Baracca

Grungy interior

Cosy and intimate Italian restaurant offering up authentic cuisine. Perfect for a date night.


Beautiful interior stylings and well presented food

Mason has a minimal menu offering cured meats and more. We had the mixed meat board, hummus and spinach & ricotta filo pastries.

Bro Resto

The dumplings here were amazing

Bro Resto is another fusion restaurant combining French & Chinese. The dumplings they have on offer (especially the mozzarella ones) are excellent.

Pit Stop

An excellent burger stop for all your unhealthy, late night cravings. They can deliver to your villa too.


Best Value: Echo Beach Club

Chilled out beach club offering superb sunset views at very reasonable prices. They offer fresh seafood also.

Rustic feel with sea themed muras

Another Canggu beach club offering a relaxed, laid back vibe. Happy hour from 5 – 6pm everyday offering buy 1 get 1 free for all drinks.

La Brisa

The pool area at La Brisa

One of Canggu’s most popular stops and a must-visit during your stay. Family friendly and a very relaxed atmosphere. Perhaps too relaxed?
