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.

Quiet beach, not really for sunbathing

Sanur beach is really nice for a walk, but is not really used for sunbathing. There are also some restaurants along the beach which are really nice for dinner in the evenings.

As opposed to Kuta, this beach is rather calm and less crowded. Peace and quite. Great choice for enjoying sunrise.

Beach cleaners working very hard to keep on top of seaweed and rubbish brought in from sea at high... More

This beach & sea look stunning, but I would walk bare footed as dogs use it as a toilet & rubbish is left on the beach such as broken glass.... But beautiful to walk along & sit at a bar for a refreshment.
