On the south-eastern side of Bali. Sanur is
favourite of many visitors for its old time flavour and local feeling. There is a paved walkway along the beachfront which is great for early morning walks. Sanur is an excellent spot to watch the sun rises, as you jog along the white sandy beach. Being one of the first resort developed in Bali, Sanur maintains its traditions. Only a stone thrown away from the beach, ancient temples stand as solemn as they have been in centuries past.
Some parents prefer the beach at
Sanur, because it's quiet. It makes the beach a good place for small children to play. The beaches are long and wide, the sea is quite calm and seawater is warm. The white sand beach is sheltered by a reef.The beaches of Bali have always to do with waves, time and time again. And they vary in size. Near Nusa Dua you will find smaller waves, which are good for novice surfers.
The wildest of waves are challenges for the most experienced surfers. Yeh Saneh in the East, Uluwatu in the South, and Medewi slightly to the West, are all excellent places for them to surf.

Kuta is surfing, bars, clubs and nightlife. Practically on the opposite side of Sanur are the beaches of
Kuta and Legian stretch. It's considered Bali's most famous beach destination. Kuta Beach is also minutes away from the Ngurah Rai International Airport in Tuban.

Jimbaran is a rustic, charming fishing village best known for its beautiful curving bay. The bay itself has a pleasant white sand beach and is very safe for swimming.
