While each of the beaches has its own name, they’re really all just a continuation of the same strip of sand broken up by small rivers. Our favorite was Berawa, as you’re within walking distance of a couple of beach bars towards Batu Belig, there’s lots of beach and the waters were good and unthreatening for swimming. For surfing in Canggu, Echo Beach is the most crowded/popular and if you like a beach scene with lots of places to eat and drink, then this is probably your best bet. Note though that there is a lot of construction going on around here. Further afield, we really liked Pererenan Beach, both for its deserted vibe and the pretty crescent of sand just to the north — it looked to be safe enough for the kids to have a wade, though as with all Bali’s surf beaches, you’d still want to keep a close eye on them. Lastly, Nelayan Beach is interesting for the still-active fishing fleet (if a dozen or so jukungs count as a fleet), and with a shallow drop-off again is probably okay for families with kids.
