    It is OK but not for the swimming
    Although the beach looks lovely on the pictures, the reality is different. The sea is shallow, lots of seaweed... On the positive note, there is a long promenade along the shore. You can walk the hours and enjoy the views and a fresh sea breeze. The street vendors are not agressive. The overall, we had a nice experience, even the sea is not swimmable

    Cooking off at Sanur Beach
    We were in the public area and found it lovely and the people friendly. You get the usual store vendors but once you find a spot or Cafe to sit at they leave you be. There was a lovely breeze each day to cool you off and generally a pleasant experience

    Nice beachfront
    Nice lengthy stretch of beach with a paved pedestrian path/cycleway bordered by assorted shops, cafes, restaurants and spas and a plethora of beach facilities between it and the sea. Our driver advised that the sea here is relatively shallow, there were also a number of smallish fishing boats pulled up to the beach. Quiet in the early morning and stallholders hoping for 'morning price' business.

    Sanur overview
    Sanur is quieter and more layer back which is what we wanted. The restaurants lining the beach provided lots of choices for meals and drinks and entertainment. A variety of shops also line the beach. We ate ate the Double 0 every night as the food was excellent as was the service. Staff were so friendly and the prices were very cheap compared to other places. We had tenderloin steak, chips and salad several times. At $9.50AU it was excellent value. I have been 6 times but never in October, it was really hot and humid, more so than other months and I wouldn’t do October again. Sanur has everything the busier places have but is more relaxed. I’ll definitely stay again but perhaps in May next time. Sanur beach is tidal so unless you get to the beach earlier in the day the beach is non existent in the afternoon but don’t let that deter you. Dinner on the beach with a cool breeze is wonderful. Also the sun sets on the other side of the island so beautiful sunrises but no sunsets.

    Nice and peaceful but....
    The area has a lovely promenade that stretches all the way along the beach front of Sanur, it is lined by beach bars and restaurants on one side and a sandy beach the other. The restaurants are ok but nothing special and the sea is very shallow and in places full of seaweed. Its nice for a chilled out couple of days but no longer and do make sure to book a place with a pool.

    Nice View
    A pleasant place to watch the sunrise. Parking is not a problem either. Made Weti is also available for breakfast, while Mak Beng is a good option for lunch. In addition, there is a bicycle rental service. The natural splendour of Sanur Beach can provide for a refreshingly unique and pleasurable experience while you're on vacation there.

    Excellent Beach in Bali
    Sanur Beach is an excellent area for swimming (during high tide hours only), walking along the 3+ mile long boardwalk that runs the entire length of Sanur Beach, or lounging under sun or tree shade. This Beach is protected from any high waves by a long reef that sits about 200 meters from the shoreline. Sanur Beach is a shallow beach with a maximum water depth of around 2 meters or less, and during the peak low-tide time periods there is little water in this beach area. However, during the high tide time periods, the Beach area is a great place. The boardwalk that runs along the entire length of Sanur Beach is very nice. This boardwalk was entirely refurbished/rebuilt just last year (2022) and is now an excellent walkway that is mostly covered by shade trees which is nice for people who are avoiding sunburns. Along the walkway, you get nice views of the beach areas, resort hotels, seaside restaurants and bars - much to see and do here. If you like to see nice sunrises, Sanur beach offers great scenic views of sunrises along the entire length of the beach. This is a photogenic beach for sunrises that is not to be missed. One block away from the beach, there is Jalan Danau Tamblingan Street, the main thoroughfare through Sanur, has many restaurants, bars, shops, money exchsnges, grocery stores, hotels and more. So there are many things to see and do here - well worth the visit.

    Nice Stroll Along the Paved Walking Path, A Lot Going On
    I stayed in Sanur and walked the beach paths daily. I did not go in the water this time around but simply enjoyed my beach walks. It was nice seeing the resorts and restaurants lined up on the path and pretty beach views. This place was pretty crowded, so there were people everywhere, definitely not a secluded beach. For the most part, the beach was clean.

    Decent beach best on north side
    We stayed a block off the beach at the Prime Plaza Hotel. Easy walk there, restaurants, shops etc along the way. Beach is busy area off this street and not as nice or kept up. Walking north to the right and along Sanur Beach gets to much better areas, nicer beach front, more sand and way more services. This beach area has adjacent markets, restaurants, shops, mini marts, everything you need. Easy to rent out lounge chairs, umbrellas, etc. , easy water access and not overly busy..

    Nice to walk along.
    The beach water appears clean and there were plenty of people swimming but we did not feel the need to do so as there was lots of seaweed and the water was very shallow. The sand on the beach could have been much cleaner - there was an unacceptable amount of plastic and other litter. That said, there is a lengthy and delightful walk along the beach, lined with cafes and restaurants, and we enjoyed sitting on sun lounges under a beach umbrella in the private area for our resort looking over the water to the reef and enjoying the sun and the sea breeze.

Quiet peaceful part of Denpasar, less people, local feel, definitely no night clubbing, no beach babes and no surfers. Loved that! The beach is dotted with small eateries and very chill bars, so you will get your cold beer and meal. Sunset was amazing here too. And after the closing time, we ended up drinking with the staff of our bar. Fun :)

It is a beach with good and quality hotels. However, the beer is poorly maintained, I think the locals need some training on this issue. You can observe the tides very well. It has peaceful, quiet and enjoyable evenings. I recommend you to go there and drink Bintang beer and listen to live music performances.

All tours on and around Bali can be cheaply booked on the beach. We stayed in Segara Village and booked all our tours via Dayu Putri, she works in front of Segara Village opposite Tootsies. She arranges all tours to wherever you want to go for a really good price and everything included.
Our experience with Dayu was heartwarming and we will visit Bali as soon as possible again.

So relaxing to walk along the sea shore - there’s a footpath most of the way except where blocked off by hotels. Bars abound and it’s easy to get all sorts of food and drinks here. It’s hot in the middle of the day so I enjoy most in the evening. This is where the young and old can be seen sharing the same beaches and bars. Great beach.

Nice beach, lots of opportunities for food and service, observe your surroundings closely. Hmmm. Parts of the beach are more Indonesian, and some parts are more touristy. We enjoyed our visit and felt very safe as we walked, stopped, enjoyed a libation, and walked!

The sanur beach was very good the first week. The beds wasn't too expensive and it was room to lay straight on the sand if we wanted. A little bit trash here and there. The second week on the other hand was not as nice. The front sunbeds was reserved for guests of some hotels which were annoying since a lot of them stood empty. And it was so much trash coming in from the ocean that it was a little bit disgusting to bathe. The beach had little trashcans so if you wanted to do a good deed and pick up trash, it wasn't too easy to throw it away. But the first week we were there it was very nice.

Short ride from Seminyak.

Quiet and laid back, must say the beach is beautiful. A nice walking path along the beach for a good view, coupled with many cafes and shops selling souvenirs. Electric bicycles for rental too. Even a small conservation are for turtles - can swing by to have a look.

We went in Dec 2022, weather was hot and humid, even the breeze is hot.

Good to book a short stay, a night or two for a getaway from the usual busy Seminyak or Kuta.

I have never stayed in the Sanur area despite many visits to Bali. Engaged our friend from Denpasar to show us around. Early morning, the beach area still devoid of hawkers, the big clean being undertaken after the previous night's concert, there seemed to be more cafes, restaurants and shops open than in the Kuta area. Not overly impressed by the area. Stopped at Grand Lucky for a few purchases, enjoyed coffees and assorted delectable cakes and headed to Denpasar. Probably should have made a return visit in the afternoon to maybe get a different perspective of the area.
