Officially called Finns Recreation Club, but often referred to by its old name, the Canggu Club, this leisure club is a Canggu landmark. With restaurants, bars, tennis courts, a spa, pool, small water park, trampoline center, kids club, fitness center, and coworking space, Finns Recreation Club is a relaxing place to spend the day.
A Canggu landmark since its beginnings as the Canggu Club, Finns Recreation Club came under the Finns brand in 2017, following the success of Finns Beach Club in Berawa. The original club was open to members and their guests only, but Finns offers day passes, which you book online. The club’s children’s facilities, including the Bounce trampoline center, Strike! 10-pin bowling, Splash Water Park, and Cubby House Kids Club, make it a popular stop for families.

How to Get There
Public transport is scarce in Canggu. Complimentary shuttle buses run between Finns Recreation Club and its sibling venues, bamboo-built Finns Beach Club and Finns VIP Beach Club on Berawa Beach. Self-driving in the choked traffic can be both frustrating and dangerous: Many visitors opt to hire a private driver for the day.
When to Get There
The weather is best on Bali between June and August, which is also peak tourist season, but Finns Recreation Club can be visited year-round. Its annual Melbourne Cup gala, held on the first Tuesday of November in honor of Australia’s No. 1 horse race, the Melbourne Cup, is a major event. Book tickets in advance—and dress up.
