Destination guide

A village with a military past and a present of pure peace

In the early 20th century, Sanur Beach was a landing site for the Dutch invasion of Bali. In World War II, it was an entry point for Japanese troops occupying the island. And yet, today, Sanur Beach might be one of the most restful places you've ever seen. With plenty of restaurants, quaint shops, and a beach featuring small waves, soft sand and gorgeous sunsets, Sanur Beach vacation rentals are retreats for couples on romantic getaways and families who want to kick back and let their worries melt away.

Things to do

If your taste is as chic as Yoko Ono's, you're in luck

Head to the Museum Le Mayeur for a look at 90 of the artist's paintings, and a tour through a lovely example of Balinese-style architecture, with carved window shutters and interior walls made of woven fibers. Batu Jimbar is another architecturally significant building nearby. The villa was redesigned by famous Sri Lankan architect Geoffrey Bawa before it provided shelter for the likes of Mick Jagger and Yoko Ono. Bali's Orchid Garden is another example of something you can't see anywhere else. The delicate flowers thrive in Bali's rich volcanic soil.


Find sanctuary on the beach and a merry walk just off shore

Sanur Beach vacation rentals are often as serene and lovely as the beach itself. It's a long, curving stretch of sand that's clean and well protected by offshore reefs. But don't plan on catching big waves at Sanur. Think baby waves lapping the shore and making beginner swimmers feel safe. After a swim and some beach blanket lounging, you'll want to enjoy Sanur's beachfront walk, the first ever in Bali. It's 2.5 miles of scenic strolling past resorts, cafes, fishing boats under repair and historic buildings.


Get ready for warmth and don't forget your umbrella

Bali is close to the equator, so you can rely on temperatures at Sanur Beach staying pretty stable all year. Daytime temps range from the mid-60s to the low 90s, with lots of humidity. Make sure you keep monsoon season in mind when looking for Sanur Beach vacation rentals. The rainy season starts in October and ends in April, and it's particularly wet from December to March. Travellers booking in May through September may pay a little more, but they'll see very little rain and lower humidity.

Natural highlights

These sharks aren't as scary as they sound

Bali residents know that the natural beauty around them is one of their greatest resources, and they'll prove it to you at the Turtle Conservation and Education Center south of Sanur Beach on Serangan Island. The centre features exhibits on the endangered sea turtles in Bali, and its turtle tanks often host new, adorable hatchlings. Just off Serangan Island is a shark nursery where you'll find another endangered creature, the black tip reef shark. You can swim with over a dozen of these finned friends while learning about their habits and their importance to the surrounding ecosystem.
