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.

“Mid side of beach is quite and beautiful!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2014

The beach is quite long, and it really depends on where you go that will define your experience.
The north is full of commercial restaurants with pushy sellers (Still much better than kuta beach), and the south of the beach is messy and dirty.
It's a good time to go in the morning till early afternoon, and don't expect beautiful sunset here, but it's good for relaxation if you find the right place.
Also a good option to rent a bike and ride next to the beach with the great view.

“sellers are very push on sanur beach.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2014

The beach is no where near like Kuta for swimming, The sand is dark and rough. The shops and people selling things are extremely aggressive and pushy. Jiggy Jig girls approach and grab hold of you and offer services. They followed my husband and son a long way along the walkway.

“A beach full of rubbish”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2014

Very disappointing. If staying at Puri Santrin or Sanur Beach Hotel then nice sunbeds but beach itself is filthy.

“Sanur Beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2014

A generally quiet contrast to the frantic congestion of Kuta Beach. Wonderful beachwalk, extended for several km along the beach. Lots of places to stop for food or drink.
The beach is kept reasonably clean. Some plastic litter, but not too bad.
Nice place to relax.
