Canggu is a sleepy fishing village, but the name has become the collective term for most of the neighbouring villages within this developing area, which is located in the beautiful agricultural belt between Seminyak and Tanah Lot. Only 20 minutes drive from Seminyak this is the peaceful alternative, and many foreigners have chosen to build villas here. The area is abundant in emerald rice fields and the stunning views are enhanced on clear days by the magical sight of the mountains. Canggu is also the location of the Canggu Club, offering leisure and sports facilities including a state-of-the art gym, a 25-metre swimming pool and a tennis & squash centre. The rugged Canggu Beach is a place that most surfers will know about, with reef swells larger than those found in Kuta.
