Sanur is a coastal village that sits close to the City of Denpasar, on the beautiful island of Bali. It is located in the southeast of the island, and has grown into a little town in its own right.
Sanur sits approximately 20 minutes from Ngurah Rai International Airport, an easy drive on the newly completed toll-road that crosses Benoa Harbor.
A long white-sand beach runs along the edge of Sanur and is sheltered by a living coral reef. A wonderful sidewalk runs along the top of the beach from one end of town to the next, offering walkers, joggers and bikers a scenic path.
Artists Miguel Covarrubias, Adrien-Jean Le Mayeur and Walter Spies, as well as anthropologist Jane Belo and choreographer Katharine Mershon all spent time in the Sanur area. Perhaps this is, in part, because of the quiet and relaxed feel of the coastal town.
When not showing feathering and billowing clouds, the blue skies are filled with vibrant color. This place is truly idyllic, tranquil, and laid back. It has been a long time spiritual center for Balinese, featuring many temples, Hindhu and Buddhist, a mosque, and even a few churches either in Sanur or close by. The atmosphere is as unique as its stunning architecture, full of interesting detail. Rice paddies still dot the outskirts of town.
Sanur is quite the place to be if you are interested in recovery and serenity.
