Bali is a much bigger island than most people think so it can be difficult deciding where to stay in Bali. Canggu is Bali’s latest hotspot so I thought it was about time I wrote about the best places to stay in Canggu.

Why I Love Canggu

There are so many reasons to choose to stay in Canggu next time you visit Bali; Canggu is located another 20 minutes north of the upmarket Seminyak beach area, yet far enough away from the busy hustle of the more infamous area, Kuta beach.

Canggu is conveniently located close to some of the best attractions of Bali, such as the Tanah Lot Temple and the area is home to some of the best surf beaches, restaurants, cafes, hotels, and bars of the whole southern beaches region.

Canggu has quickly become one of the most sought after beach areas to stay in Bali for all types of travelers. So it’s not surprising that this area is also well known as an expat and digital nomad hub too (those guys know all the secrets *wink wink* !) and it’s also popular with surfers and yogis.

Where you stay in Canggu can really make or break your trip and your idea of the place so it really pays to do your research and book ahead of your arrival.
