Canggu may only be a half hour drive from the hustle and bustle of Seminyak, but in reality it feels more like light years.
It’s a relaxed, beachside town that attracts surfers and young (‘hip’) travellers who want something a little different. Think of it as Seminyak’s cool-without-even-trying, shaggy haired older brother. Rather than the high paced days you spend in Seminyak, Canggu reminds me of the sort of place you would come for a week, hire a villa and just live the gloriously laid back Bali life – sunrise yoga, eating delicious food in little cafes and having relaxed sundowners with friends. And then, you wouldn’t leave
Although for this trip we didn’t stay overnight in the area and instead just did two different day trips, there are so many lovely places to stay. Your best bet if you have enough people is to hire a private villa (Fella Villas looks really nice, and there’s also lots on Airbnb) and really treat it like home, or also The Chillhouse and The Slow look like great options too.
