What to do in Sanur
- Visit Beach House Sanur, for good food, great views, the best music and awesome sea breezes!
- Hire a bike and ride, or leisurely walk the 7km beach path. Lots of restaurant and shopping stops along the way and beautiful view of the seaside. You’ll also catch views of Mt Agung and Lembongan Island on a clear day.
- Kite Surfing and Stand Up Paddle – when it’s windy kite surf, when it’s calm, stand up paddle instead. Classes available for beginners. SUP yoga classes also available!
- The Blanjong Pillar – is a top ‘attraction’ in Sanur and is famous for being the oldest historical artifact in Bali. Dating from 914 AD, the pillar is basically a stone inscription which was fashioned at the time of the first king of Bali, Sri Kesari Waemadewa. Its inscription has never been translated as the text is in ancient Sanskrit and Balinese. You will find it in a sleepy side street off Jalan Danau Poso, so walk along the road until you are in front of Pura Belanjong and take the alleyway on the left to get to the stone.
- Wander the main street, Jl Tambligan for the many restaurants, market stalls and shops. Visit the Market area, in the morning it’s a hive of activity with fresh produce and at night it’s a one stop shop for dinner, at extremely cheap prices.
- Museum Le Mayeur is one of the quirkiest attractions in Sanur and is a museum which sits on the site of the former home of a Belgian expatriate named Adrien-Jean Le Mayeur de Merpres.Le Mayeur lived in Bali until 1958 and you can explore his former house which showcases his collections, and much of the art on show is made up of paintings of his wife who was a Balinese dancer. After Le Mayeur died the house was transformed into a museum and it is still very much as it would have been when he lived here.
