Sanur is situated on the eastern coastline, protected by a coral reef. The waves are much gentler and therefore Sanur’s beach is known as the holiday place for the whole family and honeymooners alike. The beach is wide and white, and sheltered by a reef. At low tide it;s very shallow, and you have to pick your way out over rocks and coral through knee-deep water.Many people think it’s ideal and you’ll find many of them paddling here on Sunday holidays, particularly at the northern end of the beach. At high tide the swimming is fine, and there’s also a classic but fickle surf break.
The main attraction of Sanur is its calm beach. In the south east, one can observe Nusa Penida Island across the sea and in the eastern side, the panoramic view of South Bali along with its range of mountains is a spectacular sight that should not be missed. In a bright afternoon the scenery is simply beautiful.
Ideally, Sanur beach is good for landscape photography in the morning before sunrise from 05.00 am until the golden hours around 09.00 am.
