Care about healthy foods? Bali Buda which is only 2-minutes away from Villa Aiimara would be your first option.

Restless Nights at Canggu’s Coolest Bars

Canggu is full of cool cafes and bars, so if you’re wondering what to do in Canggu at night, here are a few recommendations.

One of the most famous places to go in Canggu drinks is Old Man’s, which often hosts live bands, DJs and late-night parties.

Another quirky spot to check out is Deus Ex Machina. It’s an iconic bar/vintage motorbike shop/art gallery/surfboard factory you know, very ‘Bali’! 

Or for something a little more grungy, head to Gimme Shelter, an underground rock and roll bar where punk is still very much alive.

Spiritual Visits to Tanah Lot Temple

Located 300m off the shore on a rock in the ocean, Pura Tanah Lot (Land in The Sea) is one of the most famous temples in Bali.

It’s a sacred place, and many believe the temple protects the island from evil sea spirits.

In terms of the best times to visit Tanah Lot… while sunsets are famous (when the temple is a beautiful silhouette) it’s worth visiting early in the morning if you want to beat the crowds. Also, if you time the tides right, you can walk to and from the temple on the sand before the water comes up too high. 

The Tanah Lot entry fee is 70,000 IDR, and from Canggu, it’ll take you around 20-30 minutes to get there (12 kilometres).

Explore the Sunday Market

Wondering what to do in Canggu on Sundays? Head over to La Laguna in the afternoon!

La Laguna is a beautiful bohemian-inspired beach club in the Berawa area of Canggu, and the latest attraction is their ‘Gypsy Sunday Market’. 

There’s live music, kids’ activities, organic food, drinks and stalls selling everything from handmade jewellery and clothes to handicrafts.

Samadi Bali is one of the most popular spots, but the Canggu Studio and Pranava yoga are also there.
