Everywhere You Should Go in Canggu, Bali’s Bohemian Hideaway

Original Source

Bali always delivers—be it sunshine, spirituality, or surf. Even the air of the place, also known as the “Island of the Gods,” seems to be filled with a palpable magic among the jungles, active volcanoes, jagged cliffs, and coral reefs. This is a place that lured travelers and spiritual seekers to its shores long before the island was popularized by the film adaptation of Elizabeth Gilbert’s memoir Eat, Pray, Love. Out here in the Indian Ocean, nestled between Lombok to the East and Java to the West (where Indonesia’s capital of Jakarta is), there’s something for everyone, from the cultural heart of inland Ubud to the awe-inspiring beaches of southern Ungasan and Uluwatu.

Daily commute through rice paddies But even the best of Bali can suffer from fatigue, especially around the colossal resorts of mass Kuta or the splashy scene of upscale Seminyak. Which is why, further west in Canggu, an antidote has fast emerged: a bohemian hideaway—the Williamsburg of Bali, if you will. Blink and you might just miss this dreamy, beachside village on the verge of going mainstream, with its maze of cool hangouts and health food cafés. Motion, Shady Shack, Crate, Peloton Supershop and Nude are a just a few. Graffiti-covered walls are adjacent to rice paddies, concrete skate bowls are as prolific as tattoo parlors or affordable day spas, like Spring, Chillax and Therapy.
