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 side of Bali is the best for families and those not seeking a disco! There are plenty of cafes and bars but without the battle of the bands atmosphere. You can also get a local snorkelling or scuba diving trip organised here.

Ok beach but it's full of hawkers desperate to sell you knives , fans, massages, and anything else they can find . A bit touristy .

Stayed at the Fairmont. The beach there is great for children as there are no waves and because of the tide the water is shallow great for little ones. Nice breeze too.

Access to this beach is difficult to find from the street. Just follow any sign to a restaurant on the beach. From there follow the paved pat to the left or right and find a place to enjoy!

Lovely beach very close to Markets and beach side Restaurants. Just check for Tide times to ensure you get high tide for a great swim and water sports. At low tide though its quite good for a bit of snorkelling.

Hi, there are jet skis to hire on Sanur beach for sure, great fun. I didn't see any snorkeling or paddle boarding on my last visit. Most hotels have their own beach lounges and umbrellas.
