Once a famous fishing village, Sanur is located on the eastern coastline of Bali. Sheltered by a coral reef, the grand mountains of central Bali compose a superb view east across the bay. Sanur is set among lush tropical gardens, and its quality hotels and resorts offer an excellent alternative for those who prefer a slower-paced holiday. The yellow sand beach is safe and numerous water sports - swimming, snorkelling, scuba diving, outrigger sailing and windsurfing - are on offer. Most hotels and resorts also feature traditional music and dance performances. A walk from north to south, all the way on the beach, is pleasant way of concluding the day. And if you get up really early, you can see the lonely Sanur fishermen, returning home with baskets heavy of a night's catch.
