Sanur beach is a vibrant but laid back area with lots of reasonably priced, small cafes lining the path along the beach, which is approximately 5 klms long. The path is quite narrow and even in low season it is used by tourists and locals on scooters & bikes which isn't ideal if you want a leisurely stroll. Low season the beach is quite different than in high season as the beach can be quite littered due to the heavy rains washing rubbish from the streets into the ocean. I have been paddle boarding on a few occasions in January and its obvious how much litter is in the sea.
We return here every year however, as it is a much slower pace than other parts of Bali and the local people are lovely.
