Sanur Beach, Sanur

3.0
#1 of 17 in Parks in Denpasar
Swim, sail, or simply bask on the warm sand at Sanur Beach, located just a half hour's drive from the area's international airport. The beach curves for nearly 5 km (3.1 mi) along the southeastern section of the island and remains one of its more serene holiday destinations. During World War II, this part of the coastline provided the entry point for invading Japanese troops. Today, the beach and its surroundings contain several resort hotels and villas, drawing pleasure seekers from distant corners of the world. If you get antsy, take a walk to the nearby Hindu temple, one of Bali's oldest man-made structures. Make Sanur Beach a part of your Denpasar vacation plans using our Denpasar trip planning website .

One can enjoy here in Sanur and in the evening enjoy a beautiful sunset. Of course, massages etc. offered and one is fairly persistent in the promotion of souvenirs, but that you need. We have made use of the possibility to rent a water scooter and that was a pleasant active break.

  • The boardwalk along the beach is fun with lots of little shops and good restaurant. Unfortunately the beach is littered and the water is not very clear. We tried snorkeling but all we found were chopp...  more »
