Best Activities in Sanur (Bali, Indonesia) 2020
Far away from the party hubs of Kuta and Seminyak, Sanur offers a quieter slice of the island. Ideal for families wishing to find a more peaceful and serene side of Bali with child-friendly beaches. Surfing beaches aren’t available here, so if you’re only looking for some waves, you’d better look for another place. Though for a relaxing time in Bali, there really is no place like Sanur.
Besides soft sandy beaches, Sanur offers a wide range of culinary choices from Western to traditional Indonesian, mainly located in the main street of Jalan Danau Tamblingan. The best things to do in Sanur are spending the day on the beach and dining at the restaurants at night. Enjoying a live performance in the charming bars is also great for Sanur evenings.
Other than that, let’s talk about the best things to do in Sanur:
Walk the promenade
All along the coast of Sanur, the beach is lined by a paved walkway. Great for a stroll at any time of the day. It’s an ideal place for families as walking along the beachfront path is easy even for little children. A bicycle ride along the beachwalk is also a favourite, while you soak up the scenery along the way.
Try Kite Surfing
Even though Sanur doesn’t have a pounding surf for riding waves, it doesn’t mean you can’t go surfing. In fact, Sanur is famous for its strong winds, which is why the annual kite ceremonies are held here as well as sports that require strong winds, like kite surfing.
Kite surfing is offered on many of the beaches in Sanur. Many people staying in Sanur who try kite surfing say it’s the highlight of their trip! And you might think so too. You can always go with an instructor if you’ve never tried this sport before and before you know it, you’re gliding through the water using the power of the wind.
Shop in Jalan Danau Tamblingan
The popular Jalan Danau Tamblingan is the main street running through Sanur where can find an endless choice of restaurants and cafes. It is definitely the place if you want to immerse yourself in some local handicrafts, as the street is filled with crafts and art shops that sell local souvenirs. You can pick up anything from ornate wood carvings of Balinese figures and traditional masks, to clothing and jewelry.
