Echo Beach In Bali – A Complete Guide

Echo Beach Bali is one of the most popular spots in Canggu for surfing. So with a beach club and surfers of all levels, here’s all the info for visiting.

How To Get To Echo Beach

Echo Beach Bali is located at end of Jl. Pura Batu Mejan in Canggu. Just past Dojo Coworking and directly in front of Echo Beach Club.

For those staying in Canggu, it’s walkable from the main street of Batu Bolong and the most popular for surfing.

We always choose to rent scooters, which start at around 50,000 IDR per day, and explore ourselves. 

However be sure to read up on our renting a scooter in Bali guide beforehand! 

If you’re looking for somewhere to rent scooters from you can book a Bali Scooter or Motorbike Rental with Delivery.

Another option is to hire a Bali Private Car or Minibus Charter With Driver, which is pretty popular for day trips around Bali, and they start at around 500,000 IDR per day (8 hours).

For those short on time, or that prefer everything to be organised for them, there are some awesome tours on Get Your Guide available to book in advance.

Best Time To Visit Echo Beach

The best beach weather in Bali is during the dry season which runs from April to October.

Echo Beach is a great place to visit at any time of the day, although it does get quite busy with surfers so if you’re looking for a quiet time then early in the day is probably best.

There are plenty of sun loungers and umbrellas if you are looking to chill and enjoy the sun.

Some of the best sunsets in Bali can be seen at Echo Beach, so I would recommend trying to be there as the sun goes down.

It’s in a prime location for those staying in Canggu.

What To Expect At Echo Beach In Bali

Chilled vibes and a lot of surf! This is definitely one of the best beaches in Canggu.

Echo Beach Bali is one of the most popular beaches in Canggu for surfing. Whether it be at beginner level or those that are fully capable, you can book a Canggu: 2-Hour Surf Lesson with an experienced instructor.

There are various different surfing spots to accommodate all the different levels of surfers.

The first is Echo beach reef break itself, a left hand wave in front of the break water and the restaurants.

The wave hits a pretty shallow reef suddenly and can barrel. It isn’t suitable for beginners in this area, and the more skilled surfers will find stiff competition from the experts here.

Sand Bar Surf Spot is another spot and also breaks suddenly, sometimes heavier than Echo reef, but it is a sand bottom so it is a little safer for those that like a challenge. It runs both right and left.

Echo beach River Mouth Surf Spot is the final spot. It is a right hand wave that can run almost all the way to sand bar. Beginners tend to use these waves. 

If you fancy a tour that factors in Echo Beach, the Canggu: Bohemian Hideaway Full-Day Customized Private Tour will be happy to take you there.

Apart From The Surfing

If you’re not into surfing, Echo Beach Bali can still be a great day. With the popular, upmarket beach club La Brisa located right on the beach, you can hang out in the bamboo playground and watch the surfers from a distance.

This beach is a black sand beach, so definitely not one of the most beautiful beaches in Bali. However, it is clean and well kept and still attracts plenty of beach lovers as well as all the surfers.

There are sun loungers scattered all the way along Echo Beach, so lots of tourists hang out here to soak up the sun.

Alternatively, in the evening, the Echo Beach Club is a popular hang out spot with undercover bbq restaurants laid out along the promenade.

Here you can find unique, boat shaped buffets offering deliciously fresh seafood as well as lots of other tasty food and drink.

Echo Beach has lots to offer and is well worth a visit!
