Yes it is. The beach is protected by an outer reef and so the waters are always relatively calm. There are some hawkers, but I've never found them to be a real issue. There's also a great path that runs the length of the beach in Sanur and is great walking, bike riding etc.

this is one of the best beach areas for families. it is best for swimming at high tide. there are hermit crabs and shells and often at night fireworks. the beach front hotels are onley a few steps from the water. the beach path is safe so no dodging busy traffic. as for hawkers they are everywhere but it is more relaxed in sanur. some hotels have hawker free on the beach frontage.

A good indication for me of the hawkers was my oldest son's reaction to them last year on his first visit to Bali.

He had not traveled to Bali with us before then as he has traveled to places like Mexico as a boy and again in his late teens and hated it. He was assuming Bali would be the same.

On his first full day we walked the length of the beach path and about half way along he came up to his father and I with a grin on his face and said "These hawkers are so friendly, when you tell them no, they just want to chat wth you. They say hello just to be friendly. We are definitely coming back to Bali again.

Well they have been back and are now getting married there next year.

Just be polite and firm and you won't have a problem with the hawkers.

Last summer we went to Bali again after ten years (in the meantime we got kids, and it is a long trip from Holland). We started in Sanur, and after arrival in our villa, we took our bikes, and cycled along the path near the beach.

Sometimes the wheel of our bike went off the path, in the sand, and immediately young boys came to us, to help us and to warn us to be careful (our youngest daughter was sitting on the backseat of the bike). I felt immediately so happy on this first afternoon, I was back in Bali again.

Friendly people! In any other country maybe you get concerned when people come after you when you are biking, here it is.....so relaxed!!!

Have a nice trip,

Kind regards,
