Sanur: Always Good to Return
Sanur was often referred to as “snore” because of its sleepy nature. Although these days its popular for not just families who take advantage of the many K-12 schools but for those who appreciate its languid pace, beach community feel and views of Mt. Agung and Nusa Penida. An attractive feature to Sanur is its curving oceanside esplanade (recently widened) and enjoyed by locals and expats for walking, running and cycling (avoid weekends).
Sanur is divided by the jalan by-pass that cuts the community in two, the beach side and the “other” side but the laidback lifestyle and pace are largely the same. Family home buyers will likely prefer Sanur as businesses here cater to children with every service imaginable, from birthday party catering to private tennis and art lessons. Sanurites are not likely to spend an afternoon in Seminyak or the south and if they do venture that way they’ll complain about the unspeakable traffic and how it’s always good to return to their homey neighborhoods. While Sanur may be suitable for families and retirees it is also considered the island’s most desirable community.
