Canggu is a section of Bali that is less touristy than the rest of the area. It’s cheaper than Kuta, and the beaches are far less crowded. This is where I stayed every night for a mere $2.00.
Additionally, surfing lessons with board rentals, wetsuits, water, sunscreen and instructors cost about $25-30 USD.
While I was in Canggu I spent literally everyday at the beach, soaking up the sun’s rays, learning to surf, and sipping water from coconuts.
Food was cheap as well. Every night, I spent less then $10 USD on food, and was filled the entire time.
I highly recommend Canggu for people who want to relax and go to the beach.
