Surf spots Echo Beach Canggu
Choosing Echo Beach Villa for your luxury holiday rental in Bali is probably the best option for those who seek active holidays right on the beach and are also willing to discover the real Balinese atmosphere, culture, traditional life and stunning countryside. If you are not only a hardcore surfer, you can access on daily tours most of Bali marvels without suffering the traffic congestion around Kuta and Seminyak.
SURFING: However, here is a brief description of the waves you will find in front and within walking distance from EchoBeachVilla complex (and there is one type of wave for most of us).
Just in front of the villas (2 minutes walk):
· Pererenan/ Rivermouth : the best wave in Canggu, hollow with rocky bottom (high & mid tide)
· Sandbar : very hollow sandy peak, short ride with longer lefts
· Echo Beach : hollow and powerful left with some barrels, rocky bottom
· Pererenan/ Stairs : good powerful left with rocky bottom (mid-high tide)
Walk a few hundred meters west of Stairs and you will find many empty waves with beautiful and unspoilt shores. Really worth it particularly at Sunset.
Surf breaks beyond Echo Beach bars & restaurants (15 minutes’ walk maximum from the villa :
· Old Man’s : a very long left, perfect for long boarders& beginners (low-mid tide)
· Batu Bolong left : the longest wave in Canggu, long walls for long boarders (any tide)
· Batu Bolong right : more powerful wave with great walls (low–mid tide)
· Batu Bolong is probably the best spot in Bali for beginners & intermediate surfers.
· Berawa : 15 minutes by scooter. Good rights with rocky &sandy bottom.
SURFBOARD RENTAL - IDR 60.000 for 2-3 hours / Batu Bolong Board Rental.
If you are beginner or intermediate, we strongly recommend you to walk 15 minutes up to Batu Bolong Beach where you will find excellent and easier waves. Head to Batu Bolong surfboard rental. You will find good boards from 6′ to 9′ at very good rates.
