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.

This is an older part of Bali away from the crowds. There are quiet stretches of beach where one can enjoy a quiet and leisurely walk in the morning or late afternoon.

Sanur is a beautiful place to holiday. Not so busy as Kuta with plenty of hotels and restaurants to choose from. Do some gift shopping as you stroll along the long beach walk.

Beach is quiet, beautiful and good for swimming, because there aren't big waves. For about 8 € you could get two sunbed and umbrella for whole day.

Like numerous beaches in Bali.... Idyllic. However, if the flotsam and jetsome (plastic cups, lighters, old ropes and general rubbish) at the water line were cleaned on a daily basis they would be beautiful.

I cannot express how sad I was to set my eyes on the first beach I ever laid eyes on in Bali. Bali! tropical paradise! Full of garbage! Plastics, litter, you name it. It is awful and I wouldn't set foot in that water for the world. I can't believe anyone thinks this is OK. The beach should be shut... More

Limited swimming during low tide - once you get thigh deep the reeds start. Ok at high tide. There are better beach options in Bali.

Great place for a stroll along the foreshore, plenty on shops, hotels and good places to eat. There is a paved path that is well shaded and wide enough for the foot traffic. Bikes can be hired and there are the watersports as well if you are after that. The beach itself seems well maintained and raked, however the water... More

Free bikes to loan from your resort makes this beach a nice gentle ride along the bike path. Plenty of spots to stop and swim or even drink a Bin Tang!
