Most Incredible Things To Do In Sanur Bali
This coastal town in southern part of Bali is more calm when compared to many of the other coastal Bali destinations like Kuta, Seminyak, and Canggu. That said there are plenty of amazing experiences and things to do Sanur.
Catch The Beautiful Sanur Sunrise
Let’s start with sunrise, that seems logical. It may mean an early alarm on your holiday but we think it is worth it to go to the beach for sunrise. There will only be a couple of photographers and perhaps someone raking the sand in front of a hotel. Peaceful, and a start to the day that will make you feel amazing.
Go for a jog or cycle along the beachfront
Sanur is on the east coast where the sun rises so if you are an early bird, take advantage of this and head to the beach. For joggers or cyclists, the 5km paved beachfront path is a wonderful scenic way to start your day. Bikes can be hired but make sure you test them properly before you start cycling.
Walk Along The Sanur Boardwalk
The Sanur Boardwalk is a paved walk that follows the beach. You can use this walk as a beach spot scouting mission or just enjoy being by the water. Walk for as much or as little as you feel like. There should be no issue at any point of the walk to find a taxi, just head back towards the main road.
Relax On The Beach
Even though the beaches in Sanur may be referred to as Sanur Beach, it is actually a few beaches that make up this part of the coast. Some parts are more swimmable than others, but follow the boardwalk, find your spot and enjoy some beach time. It is a nice, relaxed beach to spend the day. Depending on where you stop, there should always be food, drinks and toilets (in the restaurants) nearby.
Like many beach destinations in Bali, you can get excited by a few different watersports here. So if just walking or lounging on the beach is not enough action for you then Jetskis, windsurfing and stand up paddle boarding are just the beginning.
Visit Nusa Lembongan or Nusa Penida
Sanur is a gateway to Nusa Lembongan and Nusa Penida. Whilst we would highly recommend staying on one of these islands if you have plenty of time in Bali, if all you can fit in is a day trip, then it would still be a great day. There are a couple of fast boat companies that come better reviewed than others. We have used Scoot Fast Cruises a couple of times and would use them again. Depending on sea conditions and weather, even though it is a short trip it can still be rough.
Enjoying A High Tea Session
Looking for a real tranquil and peaceful ambience to sit and sip your warm tea on the beachside overlooking a breathtaking views of the Sanur Beach is definitely a thing you would loved most to do in Sanur, there are many restaurants on the beachside that’s offers such service with a range of menus you can choose from.
Visit Sindhu Night Market
Night markets are the best way of getting a feel for local life, it’s also a great place for cheap eats and to grab yourself a souvenir. During the day its open for locals to buy their groceries and ritual items, from 6pm it’s a bustling night market so arrive early to beat the crowds.Discuss with the hotel guest service representative for further information around Sanur.
