You’re all about Bali. You love the beach, the beauty and all the betutu you can eat—that’s spicy roasted chicken, in case you forgot.
In the waterfront village of Canggu, you’ll experience the best of Bali’s gorgeous landscape and easygoing local vibes while skipping the crowds and queues that sometimes come with awesome destinations.
Holidays to Canggu let you channel your inner islander and get to know what locals call the “real Bali”, and the real Bali is home to quiet coastlines, busy market days and lots of rainforests to wander through. If that sounds like your kind of reality check, get in on some great Canggu package deals with Wotif and catch the next wave!
Technically, Canggu is a small village on the south coast of Bali, just 13 km west of Denpasar—the island’s capital city. To locals and holiday-makers, “Canggu” describes a long stretch of tiny beach towns from Berawa north to Cemagi. We’ll go with the bigger, beach-lined idea and leave the technicalities back in the office!
To get around the island, book one of Wotif’s awesome Canggu car hire deals. But once you’re at Berawa Beach, it’s time to sun, swim or ride horses. Yes, you’ll find several stables and the Bali Equestrian Centre nearby, so pack your bathers and your boots.
Serious—and goofy—surfers know that Canggu holidays are best spent charging waves at Echo Beach, north of the village. While you’re headed in that direction, take a drive out to Tanah Lot, a peaceful and beautiful Buddhist Temple stretching out into the South Pacific.
When in Bali, shop all night! There are heaps of farmers markets and night bazaars in the area. The Kuta Night Markets—east of Canggu—are close by and cover several streets with stalls of fresh produce, breezy beachwear and heaps of delicious foods. To stay closer to your home base, roll out of bed on a Sunday morning and check out the selection at Samadi Bali, a recreation and yoga centre in Canggu. You can pick up some fresh kale on your way to yoga class. Win-win.
Speaking of kale…Canggu is a foodie’s playground. Restaurants and new spins on Indonesian cuisine are always on the rise. You can expect all the traditional flavours—like garlic, turmeric and chillies—but in new recipes with a signature seaside flair. Head to the beach or roll along Pantai Batu Bolong Road for a huge selection of savouries.
Your Canggu holiday won’t be complete without sampling Bali’s famous nightlife. In Canggu, like the rest of the Kuta area, the club scene caters to the student crowd and young professionals. You can sip fancy cocktails in waterfront bars, or try some new dance moves at the club.
It’s time to mix and match Wotif’s Bali holiday packages to create your dream getaway. Simplify and save on one of our Canggu packages by bundling flights and accommodation. That way, you can focus on more pressing issues, like finishing your holiday reading list at the beach!
It's all well and good to lounge around and let go of life's stresses, but the most epic holidays are about broadening your horizons and trying different things.
