Sanur Beach is one of the first resort areas in Bali to see the influx of tourism which Bali has experienced over the past half century. Despite this, it remains rich in history and retains much of its laidback ambience from its earlier days, attracting a different type of crowd compared to the livelier scenes you will find in Kuta and Legian. Sanur features several small connected beaches that are all quiet, with a pleasant paved path where locals and expats enjoy morning jogs against the rising sun. The coastline is shared by some of the island’s earliest pioneering hotels and boutique resorts. Sites to see in Sanur include its collection of historical landmarks, such as the Le Mayeur Museum located right beside the beach art market, and the ancient and mysterious Blanjong inscription, well hidden behind the modern traffic and lines of restaurants and cafes.
