Echo Beach is one of Bali's most recently christened surf spots. The nickname overshadows its local name Pantai Batu Mejan, after a significant Balinese Hindu sea temple on site. Sharing the serene rice field-landscaped region of Canggu with other wave-riding haunts such as Berawa, Seseh and Pererenan, Echo Beach has become most popular due to its advanced reef breaks, 180-degree seascape and sunsets, and array of delicious seafood cafes set on a high vantage point from where to enjoy it all. While the coast is excellent for sunbathing, leisurely strolls, and surf and landscape photographers, the waves of Echo Beach are strictly for advanced riders. Surfers dominate the scene by day, before shifting to a more ambient dining scene by night. The beach is clean and well-kept, the result of the joint efforts among various surf schools and clubs along Canggu's coast, which carry out routine beach cleanups along its kilometre-length. To sum up, Echo Beach serves as one of the islands best surf spots, and a great place to chill with a laid-back vibe, great views, and delicious seafood.
