Sanur is the gateway to the islands of Lombok, Nusa Lembongan and the Gili's. Originally a competitor with Kuta for the early tourist crowds it has developed a unique character which lends itself to a classic tourism approach. Expect established hotels located on a vibrant foreshore, where market vendors, bike riders and beach lovers alike enjoy the family vibe Sanur is famed for. Just back from the beach you will find leafy streets lined with fabulous restaurants and low-key bars. This is a place for the discerning traveller looking for something quieter than Kuta, Legian and Seminyak but with more going on than Nusa Dua.
