Beaches in Bali are all open to the public, meaning that you can lay a towel or sarong anywhere on the sand and enjoy the sun and surf for free. However, if you are looking for a bit of luxury and service, the growing number of beach clubs provide lounge chairs and umbrellas as well as dining options and swimming pools. Many of the beachfront hotels also offer day-passes to walk in visitors. Here are the top three beach clubs in Sanur to consider visiting.
