Sanur

Share

Nicknamed “Snore” because it lacks the clubs and all-night party venues of Kuta, Sanur is a sedate resort popular with older visitors, and has a distinct village atmosphere, a fairly decent, five-kilometre-long sandy beach, and plenty of attractive budget accommodation. It’s also a major centre for diving and the main departure point for boats to Nusa Lembongan, plus it’s only 15km to Kuta and forty minutes’ drive to Ubud.

Though the sea here is only properly swimmable at high tide (a big expanse of shore gets exposed at low tide, and the currents beyond the reef are dangerously strong), there are lots of inviting restaurants along the beach and you can walk or cycle the entire 5km from the Inna Grand Bali Beach in the north to Hotel Sanur Beach in the south along a seafront esplanade.
