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

A great beach with plenty of boardwalk cafes and restaurants. Lots of offers for a "massage" and "jet ski" but be polite and they'll leave you alone. Plenty of stores along the way to tempt you to buy almost anything. A lot quieter than Kuta and a lot more relaxed. Beach is good for swimming but no surf unless you... More

It's has a beautiful view for sunrise, you can see the sun is coming from behind Lombok Island. And you can see a beautiful Agung Mount through the north side of Bali island.

Have just returned from 10 days in Sanur. This was an excellent base for day trips. The beach is on the east coast so not surfy. It is tidal but great swimming a lot of the day. There is plenty of sea life as fisherman fish at low tide. We went on a glass bottom boat past the reef for... More

It's really quiet (restaurants were empty along the beach) but there is a good boardwalk to ride bikes along. Avoid the massages on the beach as the ones in town are cheaper and much better. Nobody was really swimming at the beach because it was a bit murky and sadly full of rubbish.

Found this to be a great beach to chill out and also managed to Jetski. We got 350k for 30 minutes, so about $35 aud. It was awesome fun and then had a great lunch at Luhtu's after. No waves like seminyak/legian area. But you can make a great day of it here like we did.

This really depends what you're looking for. We were after a good swimming beach and, whilst you can swim at many points, it's not that great. The sand is course and the water is shallow for a fair distance out (beyond which the currents are extremely strong). There's a good selection of restaurants and bars along the beach with a... More
