For a long time Canggu was a place only locals, expats and surfers knew about. That has certainly changed and now Canggu is a popular place to stay in Bali. So why would you choose to stay in Canggu? Canggu is laid back, with beaches and rice fields and so many delicious places to eat. Here you can surf (or learn to surf), relax, eat well, do yoga and be in beautiful surrounds. So where to stay in Canggu? Here are some of our favourite picks and Canggu accommodation guide…

Where To Stay In Canggu? Let’s Get Oriented.
So where to stay in Canggu? Canggu is pretty spread out and there is limited public transport options so you will need to have your own way to get around. Mopeds are a popular choice but unless you have a proper licence and experience with Bali road conditions I would avoid these. We use bicycles to get around and love it :) If you want to be able to walk to some things I would stay near Jl. Batu Bolong intersection with Jl. Batu Mejan and then towards the beach. Here is where a lot of restaurants and shops are.
Ok, so I would divide Canggu into three areas.
I would say the main area is around Jl. Batu Bolong (intersection with Jl. Batu Mejan) and towards the beach. As mentioned, a lot of restaurants and shops are here. My pick for a first time visit to Canggu and those who want easy access to both beach and restaurants.
Another area is around Jl. Pantai Berawa which is a little more spread out but a beautiful area with cafes, shops, beach and beach club (Finns Beach Club).
And then you have the area around Jl. Pantai Pererenan. This area is the most peaceful and surrounded by rice fields, but also more remote. You will need to go further to get to cafes and restaurants if you stay here.
Booking Accommodation In Canggu
Booking.com is one of our favourite ways to book Canggu accommodation. Simple to use and also has a great app.
Airbnb tend to have a lot of villa options for Bali, so another good option if looking to stay in a villa. Often have discounts for stays of a week or more.
