Canggu's best known beach

What we say: 3.5 stars

Better known as Echo Beach, Batu Mejan has gone through big changes in recent years and while it remains a hit with surfers, it's also a popular with those wanting to watch the goings on in comfort.

The central part of the beach is long gone, replaced by a substantial retaining wall which both protects and provides a large recreation area to some of Canggu's restaurants, best known of which (and famous for its barbecues) is Echo Beach House.

With benches, tables and umbrellas scattered in front of the sea, and the surfing happening within easy eye shot, it's a great place to nurse a few cold drinks, munch down on the food and enjoy the show that goes on on and out of the water — no shortage of posers here!

The beach immediately out front is not a swimming beach, but both to the north and south are sand strips you can relax on — watch any valuables you leave on the beach. To the south of the retaining wall sits the sprawling Sea Sentosa Development.
