Echo beach and bike browsing in Deus, Canggu

Echo beach is one of my favourites in Bali. Located in Canggu, it’s very easy to get to, great for surfing (although I just watch) and not overly crowded… oh and there are dogs everywhere.

The sand here is a beautiful grey colour. I know the words beautiful and grey don’t usually go together, it’s usually dull and grey but with the contrast of the blue sky, it makes this beach really eye catching.

For a small fee of two dog treats, we were able to get our own personal tour of the beach. Our guide took us through where the river meets the sea and we waded through the stream to the other side. It was a little deep her but she managed it. There were a few people crabbing around this area so I was a little worried about my new pal’s paws, but she was fine.

Not only does the river meet the sea, the agriculture does too. I’ve been missing the cows on the farm so it’s been nice to see them around. The cows here are a lot less bothered by people and are completely indifferent when it comes to traffic and getting out of the way though.

We’ve been seeing a lot of kite flying in Bali at the moment. The shapes and colours are really impressive.

Once our tour had come to an end, we pet our furry friend on the head and set off on our bikes to Deus and in search of caffeine.

I’ve been here a couple of times just to look at the vintage bikes and dream, but never to the cafe. I am a self confessed scrimper so I’ve always been a bit cautious of the price, but actually it was very average, especially for the area. The coffee here was really good and they had some great food on the menu so I think we’ll be stopping here again.

Once we had finished our drinks, we had a look around and the bikes and picked out which ones would be ours if we won the lottery. Once decided, we headed back to Kuta to spend the rest of the day relaxing.

This photo is of the road we take to get to the beach. As you can see it’s not the most stable or wide. It’s a real nightmare for cars. Further up there is a three foot drop over the side of the road so it can be quite intimidating whilst riding. I was driving here last week and there was a very unfortunate girl who had fallen off the back of a bike and into the mud. At least it was a soft landing and she was alright but still, be careful and drive slowly!

  1. Emily,

    Your trips always lift me up. It is reminder of the beautiful world God gave us, especially with all the craziness. I wish more people would travel and put things into perspective.

    Thanks, Gary

  2. Just gave all of your Bali blogs a read – really useful as we plan on being in Indonesia (including Bali) in February time. Will definitely take some of your advice; I prefer going off others recommendations than always following a Lonely Planet guide 🙂
