Travel Guide: Canggu, Bali

Livable, edgy, Venice Beach vibes, good surf, young, fun crowd

Where to Stay: I recommend staying anywhere around Deus Ex Machina if you want to be in it. (South of Jl. Raya Canggu, West of Jl. Raya Semat and East of Jl Padang Linjong.) There are so many beautiful, inexpensive villas for:

  • Fella Villas
  • Villa Casa Luna
  • Villa Arunja
  • Jonsen Homestay- I find this to be the best cheap place if you want to go that route.

Where to Eat:

  • Breakfast:
    • Nalu Bowls
    • Crate
    • Quince Café
    • Shady Shack
  • Lunch/Dinner:
    • Peloton Supershop
    • Green Ginger
    • Gypsy
  • Dinner & Drinks:
    • Lacalita Bar Y Cocina (insane spicy marg)
    • The Lawn (sunset live music)
    • La Brisa
    • Jl Restaurant Bale Sutra (most underrated dinner spot in Canggu, go up to the rooftop bar for cocktails and a view of the sunset)
    • The Slow (SQUID INK PASTA. Also a fun spot for drinks at night.)
  • Cheap Eats:
    • Villa Warung
    • Oma Jamu (buffet style vegan food and $2 for a full plate!)
  • Going Out at Night:
    • Deus Ex Machina (Tuesdays if you buy a $2 taco you can get a free tattoo)
    • Pretty Poison
    • Old Man’s
    • Sand Bar
  • Day Drink Spots:
    • La Brisa
