Shoes are optional at Old Man’s, a very relaxed seaside beer garden at Batu Bolong in Canggu, named after the iconic surf break it overlooks. Perfectly set within a gorgeous sprawling bamboo structure, and surrounded by green grass, there’s plenty of space for kids to run around and burn off some energy. Pair that with good eats and beer, and you’ve got yourself a perfect family outing!
As you watch the surfers, order some Kappen Krabs Krappy Patties for the kids and some old school fish and chips for Mom and Dad, washed down with an icy cold beer. As if the surf and sand aren’t enough entertainment, Old Man’s has a ping pong table and some fabulous murals that attract kids like bees to a honeypot, offering photo ops galore. And on Friday nights there’s music – anything from the Johnny Cash tribute band to a DJ. He may be old, but this man sure knows how to put on a party!
Casual family beachside dining where you can eat in your board shorts or swimmers and no one will bat an eye!
Moms and Dads looking to relax with friends while the kids run around within eyesight.
There’s a fantastic market on the last Saturday of every month (expect during rainy season) that has everything from clothing to organic fruits and veggies.
