1. From the Bali's Ngurah Rai International Airport drive to the North heading to Seminyak. If through Sunset Road, drive until the end of Sunset Road junction of Kerobokan, then turn right 2. Drive along Kerobokan road until the first traffic light of Lio Square, and turn left entering Jalan Petitenget. 3. Continue Driving Jalan Petitenget heading to Jalan Batu Belig. Drive as far as Jalan Batu Belig until end of the road and turn right heading to Canggu. 4. Follow this alternative small road and see some signage of Lv8 road direction. Drive until the intersection of Canggu Plaza in Banjar Subaksari, Pantai Brawa (Berawa). 5. In front of Canggu Plaza, please turn left and follow the Jalan Discovery. And there you are...at the end of the road is our Canggu Hotel, Lv8 Resort. Just close to Seminyak.
Lv8 Resort Hotel is located in Brawa within Canggu area with easy access from Jalan Batu Belig, which remains one of Bali’s treasured secrets. Untouched rice fields extend to a stretch of coastline with eight legendary world class surf breaks. It is a tranquil area where travelers can escape the pressures of modern living.

The Nirwana Golf and Country Club,designed by Greg Norman is only 15 minutes away, while the bustling streets of Kuta can be reached in just 30 minutes.

Canggu Beach has been selected by CNN as one of the top beaches* in the world. This surf-perfect coastline has everything from easy waves to serious breaks. The scene is unpretentious and the mood laid-back. The crowd is heavy with adventurous people who know Asia well. (*CNN World’s 100 Best Beaches, published 04/06/2013)
While each of the beaches has its own name, they are really all just a continuation of the same strip of sand separated by small rivers. Our favorite is Berawa, as you are within walking distance to Batu Belig where some of the best beach bars are located. There are lots of wide beaches in this area as well, where the waters are calm and unthreatening for an enjoyable swim.
Berawa (often also written and pronounced as Brawa) Beach is a beautiful beach that stretches from Seminyak shores to Canggu, both blessed with panoramic views of the Indian Ocean. This Berawa Beach is real surfers paradise because of the huge waves both powerful and challenging that every surfer aims to conquer it and enjoy the thrill of the adventure. Berawa Beach is a beach is a well-known tourist destination especially for domestic tourists wanting to relax and enjoy nature.
While we refer to this whole swathe of Bali as Canggu, that’s not really accurate. It’s actually a series of villages, each with their own beaches. The main throughfare is the roughly east-west running Jalan Raya Canggu which lies parallel to the beach, but around 4-5 km inland from it, from east to west, running down from Raya Canggu to the beach, are Jalan Pantai Berawa, Jalan Raya Baru Bolong, Jalan Padang Linjong (which morphs into Batu Mejan) and Jalan Raya Pantai Pererenan
Running along the ridge tops of valleys filled with paddy fileds, these roads are not well interconnected and, while there are some back ways for short hops (e.g. Nelayan to Berawa), it is quicker to walk down to the beach.
Further afield is Pererenan Beach, admired for its deserted beauty and the pretty crescent sand just to the north of it. It is safe enough for the kids to have a wade, though as with all Bali’s surf beaches, you would still want to keep a close eye on them.
Lastly, Nelayan Beach is an interesting spot for the still-active fishing fleet (if a dozen or so “jukungs” or traditional fishing boat count as a fleet), and with a shallow drop-off again is probably good enoug for families with kids.
