Tips for you
Sanur beach is a quiet area with lots to do and places to eat/drink. You can walk the whole distance easily as it is flat but we hired some bicycles and found we got to see a lot more of Sanur (because of the heat!). Lots of great warungs and bars along the beach that suit all tastes. Lots of people swim in the water as it is flat however there are lots of crabs. Great place to relax.
The location of the beach facing the east has made Sanur Beach into perfect location to watch exotic view of the sunrise. You can come to this beach before 6 am.
