Canggu is the surf paradise of Bali. The best place to catch a wave is Echo Beach. Echo beach is a long beach where, depending on the size of the waves, professionals, fun-surfers and beginners like to surf. Because the beach is a lot bigger than the Southern beaches, it offers a beautiful panoramic view. There are a lot of surf schools along the beaches. You can rent a board, suit and instructor for a reasonable price.
