Save the luxurious Hotel Tugu, Old Man's restaurant and a few warungs, there's little in the way of development immediately around Batu Bolong.
Grab a patch of sand and stake out some territory.
As far as Canggu eateries go, the very impressive and very bamboo Old Man's restaurant gets some very big thumbs up from us. If you're not surfing, this is a great spot to take in the scenery and enjoy some excellent food at reasonable prices. If you'd prefer something less fancy, there's a couple of warungs facing onto the car park.
Immediately to the south of the car park sits Pura Batu Belong — needless to say don't go wandering through there in your swimmers.
If you're keen to surf, a bunch of surfers hang out here and you can hire one for a private lesson -- the going rate is 350,000 rupiah for two hours. They usually won't negotiate any lower, but if you have two kids, you can swap the kids around so they get an hour each.
