Sanur Beach

Sanur beach, the white-sand beach shelter by reef and the surf is sedating. At low tide the beach is wide, but the sea is shallow. You have to pick your way out over rocks and coral through knee-deep water. At high tide the swimming is fine, but Sanur beach is narrow and almost nonexistent in places. The hulking Inna Grand Bali Beach Hotel, located at the northern end of the strip, fronts the best stretch of beach.

Along the coast, this beach is one of the right places to see the sunrise. You can sit on the san or huts to enjoy Sunrise. The beach is suitable for beach recreation for couples and families. Visitors can see the sunrise while swimming at the beach. Some coastal areas have exotic white sand. Equipped with shade trees, visitors also can enjoy roasted corn or spring rolls and drink fresh coconuts water from the seller.

Sanur’s beachfront walk was the first in Bali and has been delighting locals and visitors alike from day one. Over 4km long, it curves past resorts, beachfront cafes, wooden fishing boats under repair and quite a few elegant old villas built decades ago by the wealthy ex-pats who fell under Bali’s spell. While you stroll, look out across the water to Nusa Penida.

Sanur is Bali’s oldest upscale resort area and is a mature beach-side town. Despite the abundance of restaurants and accommodation, it has a quiet and relaxed feel to it. In general terms, it is more expensive than Kuta but cheaper than Seminyak. Sanur tends to appeal most to middle-aged and older families, especially Europeans.

The Sanur area is sandwiched between the main Jalan Ngurah Rai bypass and the beach. One main route called Jalan Danau Tamblingan runs north to south through the town and it is easy to orient yourself with reference to this road. Sanur is a coastal stretch of beach of Denpasar city of southeast Bali, about 30 minutes’ drive from Ngurah Rai International Airport, which has grown into a little town in its own right. Nice beach within an offshore reef, many boats plying for hire to take you to the offshore Islands. Lots of locals are offering massage on the beach. Along the walkway, you will find cafes or restaurants from cheap and simple to exotic foods being served and at good prices.
