Falling in love with the Sanur sand and sea

Step into the calm waters and soft sands of Sanur, a sunny Balinese getaway on the southern side of the island. You'll fall in love with the views here, whether you're staring out at the sun reflecting on the rippling ocean or peeking underwater to discover a world full of vibrant sea life. On shore, you'll be charmed by bustling night markets and local vendors peddling handmade goods, all along walkable streets just blocks from the ocean and close to an array of Sanur vacation rentals, from private villas equipped with pools to traditional Balinese homes in the heart of town.


Hitting the water in Sanur

The south side of Bali is known for its gorgeous beaches, with white and golden sand, and Sanur offers some particularly family-friendly shores, thanks to a reef and breakwaters that make for calm ripples and fantastic swimming spots. Kite surfing is a fantastic way to enjoy the water here and you'll find several companies offering rentals and lessons to get you started. In-between splashing around and lazing on the warm sand, you can take a scenic afternoon walk or a bike ride on the paved promenade that runs by the sea. Stop for a bite to eat at one of the cafes along the way.


Long warm summers in Sanur

There's nothing better than stretching out on the golden sand under a warm summer sun in Sanur, with nothing but bright, clear skies overhead. You can fill your suitcase with shorts and sandals no matter when you visit this South East Asian paradise, since perfect summer temperatures last all year long. The daytime sees highs in the 80s and lows typically stay in the comfortable upper-70s. You'll want to book your Sanur vacation rental during Bali's dry season, which runs from April through October, to avoid the long days of rain that fill the other half of the year.
