Lonely Planet review for Beachfront Walk
Sanur's beachfront walk was the first in Bali and from day one has been delighting locals and visitors alike. Over 4km long, it follows the sand south as it curves to the west. The countless cafes with tables in the sand will give you plenty of reason to pause. Look for ferries crossing Selat Badung between Sanur and mysterious Nusa Penida. Offshore you'll see gnarled fishermen in woven bamboo hats standing in the shallows rod-fishing for a living. At the northern end of the beach, elderly men gather at sunrise for meditasi – swimming and baking in the black volcanic sand found only at that end of the beach.
