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. « less

Sanur is a nice beachfront with a cycle path. However, it is quite busy in mornings and evenings. Since I was staying nearby, I preferred to visit at night when it was calm and quite and enjoy the sound of the tides.

It is mainly a touristic venue, many hotels and many vendors with huge pressure for tourist (people even follow you to sell you things). Not as fool as other touristic places like Kuta or Seminyak but I don recommend other place like Jimbaran if you want to relax in a quiet and beautiful place. Sanur's beach is not that beautiful...

Sanur village festival is normally organised in the month of August. This is the best time to visit as this festival gets lots of tourists and locals alike. Most important part of the festival is Ramleela played over 5 days in traditional style. There is kite flying competition and a local fair as well. The beach is clean and popular... More

Sanur's expanse of sand and delightful wave break on the coral bar well off the foreshore gives constant visual and aural appeal. Extensive upgrades to walking paths has improved the access but cyclists also share this with walkers and traffic can become heavy early morning or evening sunset. Beach bars and small warungs serve quality food, with easy access to... More

We liked the many cafes along the boardwalk, beach was very clean and quite. Not too over crowded, you can walk or cycle from one end to the other about 3 miles

The beach at Sanur has yellow sand and is used by the local fishermen to park their outriggers. Similar in style to Nusa Dua, Sanur retains its old world charm and connection to a more authentic Bali than Nusa Dua, with mile after mile of traditional warungs competing with top class resorts set on the boardwalk. Sanur beach is one... More

This beach is Huge! It is like a big L shape. I have been there at least 4 times during my stay in Bali. I love to love along the beach and I think it might take me at least 1 hour to walk the entire beach.
