Simple Guide to Sanur

The tranquil beachside village of Sanur is the perfect destination for visitors who want a relaxing retreat in Bali. It is considerably less crowded and less congested than other areas in Bali such as Kuta, Seminyak, and Canggu; making this a popular destination for those wanting a little more peace and seclusion from their accommodation in Bali.

Despite its quiet disposition, Sanur still has plenty to offer for those staying here from great accommodation options, to restaurants, activities and boutique clothing stores. Here are some ideas to get you started exploring.

Places to view the sunrise

With Sanur being on the geographic east coast of Bali, the coastlines set the perfect stage to view the Sunrise. It is perhaps one of the best perks of Sanur.

You can view the sunrise from any location along the shoreline, but there are some notable beaches you should consider visiting to catch the sun rising. Notable beaches include Karang Beach, Sindhu Beach, and Segara Ayu Beach. These beaches feature wooden gazebos on the coastline where you can sit and admire the horizon as the sun rises.

Once you’ve caught the sunrise, take a stroll along the coastline to find dozens of boutique cafés and restaurants to grab a cup of coffee and get your first meal of the day.

Places to eat in Sanur

Sanur has no shortage of boutique restaurants to choose from. If you stroll along the main road of Jalan Danau Tamblingan, you’ll have plenty of options to choose from. The coastline itself also has cafés and local warungs, Indonesian food stalls, to choose from.


For notable places to eat, we recommend checking out Massimo for their authentic Italian cuisines, vibrant live music, as well as their superb gelato. Their gelato is well known in Bali, and you’ll see visitors form a line on the street just to get a taste.
