The Area: Sanur, Bali
Sanur is a beach-lovers’ paradise, set away from the hustle and bustle of Kuta and Legian on Bali’s eastern coast. Most Balinese people speak at least some English, and the island is well set up for travellers, with all modern conveniences in easy reach. Return airport transfers make getting to and from the resort a breeze. Sanur is the gateway to beautiful Nusa Lembongan, with regular boats departing for the island; the area is 10 minutes’ driving time from Denpasar, 20 minutes from Kuta or Legian, and 30 minutes from Seminyak or Ubud.
Traverse the splendid paved beachfront cycle-path which spans 5km in south Sanur for a chance at memorable shots of the scenic views especially early in the morning. Hire a car or driver to explore the spectacular volcanic ranges, lush rice paddies, temples and cultural attractions of Bali, with the island’s petite size making it easy to get around in just a few days. For a delicious, inexpensive local feast, head to the Sanur Night Market at the northern end of Jalan Danau Tamblingan.
