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.

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.

Great beach for a daily walk, from our hotel you can turn left and right and walk for hours if you like. Great little restaurants and bars to stop off at for a refreshing drink and plenty of stalls to buy your Bali memory

Attractive to sit in the shade watching the passing parade of people and boats. While the sand part of the beach is cleaned regularly, the water itself is a worry. I would not swim in it for fear of picking up something nasty. No waves, unlike Kuta beach where there is generally nice waves.

The problem is that coming from Australia where we have wonderful Beaches we expect a clean beach. The beach was dirty with rubbish on the sand as well as in the water. Cost us $20 for 4 sun loungers and constantly hassled by hawkers. Also we think there was sea lice in the water. On the up side there are... More

Right now I have nestled myself under a thick leaved tree, 20 min from the sea line, overlooking the many colourful authentic fishing boats. Along the beach are restaurants and little shops. A relaxed atmosphere and very reasonable prices compared with up market Seminyak or busy Kuta. I love it here as from here as you are in a taxi... More

Unfortunetly yoo many people try to sell you something starting with a chair finishing at the ride on the water scooter. But it is possinility to find a spot were the sellers dont come just stay away from the umbrellas by the beach ;) water and sand nice, easy to fall in a sleep :)
