Neighbourhood & Getting around
With so many cafés, restaurants and bars down the road, one thing is sure, you will not run short of choice. Start your day at the old time classic Betelnut, one of the first restaurants to open in Canggu, which is famous for its generous brunches and healthy salads. If you are a croissant lover, try Monsieur Spoon just next door. And for the best coffee in town, do visit Gipsy Kitchen & Bar just off Batu Bolong Road.
For a true Indonesian experience, try Warung Bumi for lunch but make sure you go there early enough as the place is quite popular and there might be fewer options left at the buffet by two o’clock. For our vegetarian friends, Shady Shack’s vegetarian burgers and mushrooms are a must, while La Baracca next door offers the best Italian pizza.
For dinner, do not miss out on the local delicacies served at Warung Dandelion and if you get lucky enough you might see the rabbits jumping around in the garden. Deus does the best burgers ever. Book a table ahead and you are all sorted for your Sunday night as there is a live concert going on every Sunday. Sandbar, which is open from 12 midnight to early morning every Sunday, is your next stop, while Old Man’s remains an old time classic for Fridays.
For shopping, do try your bargaining skills at Love Anchor. Stroll around and do some window shopping at the hipster boutiques in Batu Bolong street. And if you are a massage fan, you will be amazed at how cheap massages can be in Bali. Try Therapy – one of the first places to open at Echo Beach – or the massage offered at Kirana Hotel. These people just know how to do a massage right. Gold dust is famous for its golden mask facials and is definitely worth a try. There is no better way to end your day after some shopping and a massage but to head off to the beach. Order a coconut and watch the sunset and you are all set.
Best way to get around Canggu is by bike. Motorbike rental per day is approximately 60.000 IDR (€3.5 or $4.5 USD), and no licence is needed.
If you are a family or big group of friends, you might prefer to rent a car. Car rental per day is approximately 200.000 – 300.000 IDR (€12 -€18 or $15 – $22 USD). To rent a car you need to have an international valid licence.
Just let us know and we can arrange for both motorbike and/or car rental.
