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.

Best beach in Bali

If you are traveling with kids this is the perfect beach for you. Only small waves, nice sand, warm water, only the trash all over is a little disturbing.

This is a child-friendly beach with activities for everyone in the family. We are here as I write my review. We parked ourselves at the Hyatt regency beach club and had lunch at the club. Great time relaxing and chilling out. For those who are more adventurous, the typical sea sports are available.

This is a beautiful beach but has had some artificial breakwaters put in with bales on the ends making amazing silhouettes at sunrise. The downside is the amount of rubbish that collects around the breakwaters.

The Sanur beach is very average. Maybe we are spoilt as many people really seem to rate the beach here but we found it just average. One of the things with Bali as a whole is the amount of stray dogs so if you havent been there before its something to be aware of. All the beaches seem to have... More

Great way to see the beach from the bike, as well as ride through the rice fields and make lots of stops along the way. The area around Sanur is flat so easy to do. About 15km in 3 hours.

We traveled about 7 Km from Kuta to try Sanur beach. Although the beach is quiet but we have been to far better place for Swim. I think the beach at Seminyak is better than this....

We found this part of Bali more family friendly than Kuta and surrounds. Definitely less crowded and chaotic. The yellow sandy beach was clean and offered a number of activities, including sunset yoga. The market stalls were perhaps a bit overwhelming with shopkeepers trying too hard to get your business.

Beaches at home are better, there's a fair bit of rubbish floating around close inshore. Even when you are on your resort's private beach strip, you have to cross the path and be hassled by someone trying to make a buck from you.
