4.Go for a floating breakfast
It may sound cliche, but this was one of our favourite things to do, as we did this on our anniversary. We went to Cabina for ours, which was amazing, however, their are lots of other options.
Cabina was a great way to spend the afternoon, from the service, quality and vibe, it was definitely worth every penny.Nervous that this was going to be a style over substance splurge, we were definitely happy with our decision in the end !
Another great way to spend an evening in Canggu is at Pretty Poison. This hangout spot is perfect for listening to live music, drinking and even watching skaters flip around on their skateboards.
This skate bowl club is popular on Tuesdays and Thursdays, so make sure to check it out !
6.Rent a Scooter and Explore
When coming to Canggu, one of our favourite things to do was to hire out a scooter, and ride ! Bali isn't really that big, and places like Seminyak, and Kuta are only a short drive away, and definitely worth visiting.
With that being said, Canggu is also worth exploring, as it has many beauties to offer such as the incredible street art scattered around, riding the 'Canggu short cut' and seeing the many rice paddies!
