Help: Canggu or Sanur?

Hi all! I'm currently in works of a plan for my lil baby's first holiday and thought of heading to Bali. Was researching and a lot people were saying that Canggu is becoming quite a hot spot. Just not sure if it will be a suitable area and beach for a family with a baby. Some said Sanur is a better place for a family since it has a calmer beach. So really torn between the two. And also any suggestion which place is better to stay in a villa?

Thanks in advance!

If this was my trip I would pick Sanur for the availability of things that I might need

Sanur would be much more suitable as Canggu is quite spread out. In Sanur you could stay beachfront with many places to eat along the 7km of beach path. Lovely views,safe atmosphere and fixed price shops at the Baruna Beach Market at the northern end . Sanur is good for a relaxing holiday without hassles

Without any hesitation I would choose Sanur. Sanur is closer to many of the attractions up north and the beaches are really suitable for toddlers and kids. It is also developed enough that you can find everything you will need nearby.

Thanks a lot everyone! Lols guess Sanur it is then. Just looked through the places to stay in Sanur and so many nice options!

Oh would it be from this area that I'd have to take a boat to head to Nusa Lembongan?
