Owner description: 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.

It's not too famous to tourist but maybe because of that reason, the beach is quiet and relaxing. The nearby restaurant and cafeteria is also not expensive. You might wanna stay here and then book tour around the island. It's much better than staying in Kuta (terrible traffic and a lot of people) or Nusa Dua (expensive for budget traveller)

sortunatamente as now all over the world, over-population and tourism without rules of sewers and respect for nature and the resulting pollution have marred this place that still remains with a particular charm.

After traveling to the Caribbean for several years and having just been to many Thai beaches prior to Bali, I have to admit I was very disappointed with the quality of beaches in Bali. I doubt I will return to Bali. However, the people were friendly and the mountain scenery was beautiful.

The beach font is ideal for walking along with numerous hotels, cafes, restaurants and local booths selling clothing and local items. When you walk along you are always asked to step in to the shops to have a look, but the loacls are very friendly and won't continue to bother you if you walk on. If you do wish to... More

But not that nice overall. Just an ok beach. Good for our little guy to splash around. If you're looking for white sand and clear water, this is not it. Maybe not in bali.

My wife is not a sand/beach person so although we had a couple of walks along the boardwalk we did not swim there. All our swimming was in the hotel pool.

This part of the coast is protected by a natural reef creating beautiful beaches all the way along the coast. It has an excelent boardwalk that goes for miles.

On the whole the beach was much cleaner than where we stayed at Seminyak, The restaurants along the beach front were good and we enjoyed the location of the Mahagiri Villas Beach club. It was fantastic to be able to walk along the beach front on a well made path.
