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

Fairly quiet beach on whichever part of the beach you are. There are a lot of pump boats by the shore. Sun chairs for rent at around 50,000 for 2 (non-resort) as of Sept 2014. Clean but not the most beautiful beach, less touts other than 1-2 ladies offering massages. The not so good: We took our bicycles and cycled... More

Had some great long walks along the beach. Great photos, especially those outriggers. A lot quieter and more relaxing than Kuta. No hawkers along the water's edge, but sellers are a bit pushy around the market area. Had a great meal on the sand one beautiful evening - wasn't cheap, but reasonable. The atmosphere was great.

Despite of the hussle in Kuta area, Sanur will be the right choice to spoil your eyes with thw beauty of nature, wind blowing gently into your ears and the waves... It's an excellent beach in Bali which I would recommend you to come on their lowest busy time.

Hadn't been to Bali for 20yrs and was so happy with our choice of Sanur. Chose a hotel right on beach and it was a great decision. The beach path was fantastic. I had hired a wheel chair for hubby and it was so easy walking along path. Plenty of restaurants and shopping, we walked for km. We went morning... More

An easy walk and a lot quieter than Kuta where you are pestered all of the time. Some great places to just sit and have a drink or go back and have a romantic dinner as the night rolls in.

Sanur beach was the first beach I visited in Indonesia. I arrived at the time of a low tide, which I have been told is every day after 9am and until late night.So if you want to have a nice relaxed swim, you have to get there quite early. The beach was a little dirty with some plastic rubbish sticking... More

We spent the afternoon here and it was really nice. Where we were there were many small hotels along the beach, so it was hard to find a place to rent a chair because they were reserved for hotel guests. Eventually we found a place in front of a restaurant, which was nice because we could order drinks while we... More

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.
