Bali is a surfer’s paradise and a haven for spiritual seekers, sure, but it’s also a dream destination for free-spirited foodies and aesthetes. Canggu, a tiny village on the island’s west coast, offers the best of all worlds—without any of the maddening crowds.
Perched on Bali’s west coast, Canggu is a short drive north of the busy tourist towns of Seminyak and Kuta. But thanks to miles of undeveloped beachfront, unending stretches of rice paddies, and a laid-back population of expats, it feels worlds away. The village’s restaurants and shops reflect the eclectic, bohemian vibe.
