Sanur Holidays

If miles of white sandy beaches lapped by calm turquoise waters would be your dream getaway, then a tailor-made holiday in Sanur is perfect for you.

Sanur is a traditional Balinese seaside town in the southeast of Bali. Its tropical palm-fringed beaches stretch for miles along Bali’s breath-taking coastline. Wander along the paved walkway that connects all the beaches and each day you can discover a new slice of paradise. Start your day with a wonderful walk or jog along the three-mile route at the break of dawn - Sanur’s phenomenal sunrises are out of this world. Even if you’re not usually an early riser, getting up in time for the sunrise even once during your Sanur holiday will be worth it, we promise.

Sanur holidays - where life’s a beach

Sanur’s quiet idyllic bays are ideal for swimming, as the off-shore coral reefs create calm and gentle waves. The east-facing beaches of Sanur are lined with colourful jukung fishing boats, which have become a mecca for watersports. The steady winds and constant currents provide the ideal conditions if you’d like to try your hand at windsurfing or kitesurfing.

If you wish to go diving or snorkelling then Sanur is an ideal place to do it, with its heavenly abundance of sea life and healthy coral reefs. We highly recommend you take a wonderful day trip to the nearby islands of Nusa Penida and Serangan Island where you can swim with manta rays and turtles.

Your holiday in Sanur is ideal if you’re considering visiting several destinations in this fascinating corner of the world, which has so much to offer. You could mix your dreamy beach holiday in Sanur with a visit to Bali’s capital of culture in Ubud. Or if you fancy teaming your holiday to Sanur with another country, why not couple it with a trip to Dubai, Bangkok or Singapore? Almost anything is possible, so call our Destination Specialists today who will help to create your perfect Sanur holiday.

Frequently Asked Questions

We recommend at least five nights here to allow you time to relax and unwind after the long flight. This will also give you enough time to explore the local shops and restaurants. If you are a beach lover you could easily spend longer but if you'd prefer to get out and see more of the island this would be our suggested duration.
