Stretching 5 km along the Eastern coastline, low key Sanur was one of the first tourist destinations to come to life in Bali in the 1920’s. A thriving artists colony in the 50’s, Sanur has always attracted a quieter traveller. Home to Bali’s Annual Kite Festival it is also a great spot for watersports. The main jumping off point for exploring other islands by boat, Sanur has a protected white sand beach with a restaurant lined boardwalk making this super family friendly, an expat enclave and a hotspot for European travellers.
Sanur’s biggest drawcard has to be its beach walk that meanders past wooden fishing boats, resorts, cafes, bars and villas with old-school elegance. Stunning at sunrise and a popular expat enclave for morning runs, yoga on the beach and bike rides. Followed by brunch at any of the chic beachside cafes.
