Canggu, Bali: Echo Beach

Usually, I’m not a beach person. But how can anyone how fall in love with the gentle sea breeze and chill out vibe of Echo Beach? I would say it’s the calmer and quieter cousin of it’s hip cousins Seminyak and Kuta.

Canggu is up north of Kuta and it’s rather out of the way. It’s not so touristy and it’s like a sleepy surf town. In Kuta, the moment you step on the beach, there’ll be vendors harassing you but not for Echo Beach!

The sand is a fine and powdery black sand that you sink into. When you stroll along the beach, there’s a sand bar that you can rent a bean bag for 50,000RP and grab a drink. It’s pretty nice and fun to chill out, people watch and enjoy the breeze.

When it’s sunset, the beach fills up pretty quickly with locals, dogs and tourists.
