Lonely Planet review for Sanur Beach
In keeping with the local demeanour, the white-sand beach is sheltered by a reef and the surf is sedate. At low tide the beach is wide, but the sea is shallow and you have to pick your way out over rocks and coral through knee-deep water. At high tide the swimming is fine, but the beach is narrow and almost nonexistent in places. The hulking Inna Grand Bali Beach Hotel, located at the northern end of the strip, fronts the best stretch of beach.
Just south of Jl Kesumasari, there are simple warung that rent out loungers for 10,000Rp and battered kayaks for 20,000Rp.
