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.

It was our first time to Bali, and I had hoped for nicer beaches. Sanur beach was a bit grotty, and it didn't make us want to get in the water. (Whenever I go to the beach, I normally feel compelled to at least put my feet in the water). The good thing about Sanur was that it wasn't as... More

Quiet, less rushed side of Bali and Dempasaar. The beach had beautiful sand and few people. Bars and restaurants were a short walk away. Away from the beach we encountered a hawker trying to sell us Rolex watches for $50. Be careful.

Loved our one day on Sanur Beach. It had a Bali of 25 years ago vibe. Simple and easy with a nice strip of restaurants and bars along the beachfront. We walked along, had beers at a bar at south end(name?) and then a nice swim , water clean. Then we followed this with a lovely lunch at beachfront Lilla... More

Sanur is good for those who like a slower and less crowded pace then Kuta. It's close to the airport, and a ride should cost around 150K rupiahs (AU$15). It has everything: great restaurants, good shopping, and most importantly clean beaches! The promenade along the beach is great on a bike and if your legs are sore, plenty of opportunities... More

It was a pleasure to come to this side of the island. The water was clean and the beaches tidy. Good food. What more do you want from a beach.

The beach of Sanur is far less crowded than the beach of Kuta. Along the beach is a sidewalk that is used both by walkers and bicycles. Bicycles can be rent at the beach. You can choose from many restaurants at the beach. If you do not stay in a hotel at the beach it might be a bit difficult... More

We travelled to Bali in Dec'16 and were advised by experts to pick a beach on the Eastern part of Bali, so as to avoid the dirt and debris brought in by the winds in the West coast. And true to our expectations, we found Sanur beach to be calm and very clean, with crystal clear water. There were lots... More
