Villa Kakatua lies at the beach end of Canggu’s thriving Jalan Pantai Batu Bolong, a country lane that has experienced an amazing transformation over the last few years and is now home to some of Bali’s hippest haunts. You’ll find a number of excellent cafés, bars and restaurants within a few minutes’ walk of Villa Kakatua. Among them are the chill-out beach bars, Old Mans and The Lawn, popular vegetarian venues Betelnut Café, Milk & Madu and Crate, and the ever-elegant Hotel Tugu. Batu Bolong Beach, just 100 metres from the villa, is renowned for its world-class surf breaks and rugged beauty; it’s the ideal location to catch a wave, take a stroll along the sands to nearby Echo Beach or capture the sun setting over an ornately carved sea temple.
