The atmosphere of Sanur is quiet and relaxed. Private hotel beaches ensure that you are not hassled and local shop owners are friendly and welcoming without being pushy. Don’t expect the nightclub scene like Kuta or Legian. Relaxing lounge bars filled with soothing reggae or jazz are more common.
Sanur Beach is protected by an offshore reef making it suitable for families. The reef also provides good surf with the ‘Hyatt Reef Break’ being a popular local choice. Leisure activities like scuba diving, snorkeling, surfing, kayaking and windsurfing are available along with jet ski hire and fishing charters.
There is a paved cycle path that runs the full length of Sanur beachfront from The Mercure Resort in the south to the Inna Grand Bali Beach Hotel in the north. This makes getting around Sanur very easy as there are many restaurants, bars and shops within walking distance. The Sindhu Beach Markets are worth a look as too the Sanur Night Markets. A walk through the Beach markets is a great chance to buy sarongs, sandals and jewellery while the Night markets offer more authentic, local market feel.
The beautiful accommodation and relaxed atmosphere of Sanur makes for a memorable holiday.
