Life In Canggu

Canggu is a surf town in Bali. The area was once famed for its rural setting. Today, the area is modernizing though. And fast. This part of Indonesia has long been popular with tourists. Recently retirees began to arrive too. New houses and apartments are being built all the time. Canggu is on the way to becoming a major destination in Bali. If you want to see it before it changes for ever, don’t wait too long.

Canggu Is Changing

This is a blessing and a curse. A lot of the area’s original charm came from its quiet and authentic feel. This is almost certain to be mostly gone within the decade. On the other hand, thanks to the development it is now a viable retirement choice.

Healthy Living

Canggu attracts an outdoorsy crowd. Surfers come here from across the world to sample the waves. The waters are also great for diving, fishing, sailing and snorkeling. Many of the restaurants and cafes serve healthy, and vegetarian/vegan friendly menus. You can still get a burger or a steak of course, but you will probably end up eating greener here than in most places.

Spa treatments and yoga are popular options in Canggu. You can enjoy both at affordable prices.
