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.

Sanur beaches aren't the most beautiful of Bali but they're more quiet in terms of vendors (people don't try to sell you something every five minutes) and in terms of conditions (no big waves like on the west). The reef break a few hundred meters from the beach makes Sanur beach better for people who aren't confident in waves. It... More

Although the beach is nice, by comparison with other places in the world and with the photos of Sanur beach itself we've seen before coming here, well, it's not as great as one may expect. The water is warm and clean, but nowhere near the crystal blues and greens of the Mediterranean. The sand is fine, but again, not sugar... More

Our hotel had lounge chairs reserved for guests but other lounger chairs were available for 100,000 rup per person for as long as you wanted. Stunning clean beach, we loved it. No hawkers just a peaceful day in paradise.

By far rthe best of the "busy" places we visited in Bali. Not as manic at Seminyak, Ubud or Kute. Stunningly beautiful and the daily afternoon breeze was a delightful refuge from the heat. Sunrise in the morning was just amazing, well worth the early rise.

I think that this is the best beach in Denpasar area. the beach itself is a very long one and dominated by structure of inna grand beach hotel. you could also rent boat at one part of this beach that will take you to nusa penida, lembongan, etc. best time to visit this beach is when the sun rise

Lovely beach, some fabulous houses and lovely views over the ocean.... but it's so quiet, it's actually a good place to live and not so hot to visit. Very upmarket area.

Location is good, to see sunrise from this beach. But after 3 in the afternoon, the beach sand is almost unseen, due full of people gathered in this site. 90% local people come there with their family and children, some are teenagers or couple. Beach is rather dirty due rubbish left by visitors. Little market also exist, parking area only... More

Sanur beach is ok. Clean with many opportunities for lunch/dinner and sunbeds and umbrellas. Let's say that this side of Bali is much better than Kuta-Seminyak-Legian. Less crowdy and more stilish!
