The Sanur Beach Promenade is lined with brightly painted outrigger boats along the water's edge, and good restaurants and cafes opposite. Treat yourself to a massage offered by one of the many masseuses with divans on the sand. If you're there in July, catch the Bali Kite Festival, a colorful international competition.

Not the greatest beach for swimming. Unless you are at a beachfront hotel, the lounge chairs you can purchase are old and ratty, with dirty towels and covers. Overall, seems like a relatively safe area though. We spent more time at the pool in our villa then this beach.

Beach could do with a good clean and has few beds on it at certain spots. Most beds belong to the big hotels. Further along the beach are some restaurant shacks but they charge for beds. We had a private pool at our villa and just walked down to the beach for a swim did not stay on the beach.... More

The resorts are all over the beach and there is almost no sand... If you are not in a resort, it's good to spend one at most and eat in some of the cheap restaurants in front of the beach.

Nice beach for chilling and watching everyday life but no good for swimming. Lovely at night to walk along and find a nice restaurant or cafe. The beachwalk is a great asset to Sanur

I actually liked Sanur. From a cultural perspective, its the best place to visit. You see many locals who favor this beach: kids playing, adults swimming. Families gather here for bbq, spending an enjoyable time together. I didn't like the vendors. Many of them just won't leave your alone. They follow you and insist you visit their shops, which are...

The sand is not fine grain so it is not great for sand castles and such. There are shops & restaurants all along the boardwalk so you won't be bored if you need some distractions. It definitely seems to be catering to the sun worshippers and not so great for kids.

Sanur might not be the party scene that other places are but it's nice and relaxing. You can do water sports and there are a few locals shops to enjoy. Kuta is just 30 minutes away if you want to go to a mall or get black-out drunk
