Just to the south of the road lies the Legong Keraton Hotel, but you'll find most of the surfers are staying either at one of the cheap Canggu homestays back off the beach or further still afield.
It's good surfing, but the waters here are also straightforward enough for a simple swim and there is plenty of sand for relaxing or running around on.
If you walk south, you'll pass a massive half-built and seemingly abandoned hotel, then a lagoon. At the far side of the lagoon is a wobbly bamboo suspension bridge that leads to Warung Agung Kayu Putih — one of our favourite spots in the area for a sundowner. Keep walking south from here and you'll reach Batu Belig, putting you into Seminyak (as far as Travelfish is concerned!).
