I had been going to Ubud for some years when I recently discovered Sanur and have stayed 3 or 4 times since. I like the rustic, village feel to it. It is quieter and more relaxed than other places in bali with a mix of peoples, and ages. There is a growing healthy/yoga scene, but also some new, modern trendy... More

The hotels beach chairs and shade cloth were handy, but the water is very warm this side of Bali. Also it is completely flat, no waves to enjoy some body surfing. We were haggled allot by the cafe's and watersport companies as we walked along the beach. But the beach was fairly clean and is fine for suntanning.

Lovely beach, go to Nyoman to eat and rent loungers, they are wonderful people and the food is great. If you want to swim better go before noon, after that thie tide comes and you can go for a really long walk in that sea :)

Sanur beach is on the east side of the island which means that it gets some good tides. At low tide there is hardly any water just the reef. Also the water on this side is quite dirty so it may be better to swim in the pool. There are endless activities here from scuba diving to just lazing about.... More

While Sanur has some world class hotels on the beach front it still maintains its former fishing village atmosphere. Due to a reef 800 metres off shore it is very safe for all water sports but no surfing inside the reef area. Also starting point for boats heading to surrounding islands.The beach front is 7 km long, and is dotted... More

Sanur beach is quiet place especially in in first half of December. Teher are many bars and restaurants. You can rent a bike or just walk and relax.I like this place.
