Our shrine is the ocean. A rich and very active local community surround the studio, with a large temple and local market close by. Sanur is well know for its gentle, relaxed atmosphere, its quaint cafes and restaurants, and a multitude of fun activities like kite-surfing, snorkelling and traditional sailing.The clear water of the coral lagoon, together with the white sand beach, coconut palms, and gentle sea breeze make this a very special part of Bali.
The roads are safe for cyclists, and pedestrians, and the beaches are free from noisy, clubs and bars. The main town is chilled out and filled with a harmonious mix of relaxed tourists, expats, locals and families.
There are still lively activities but also spots in which you can be left alone and at peace. The waves are calm, the beach is brilliant white and pristine, the surf breaks are great to catch a morning or late afternoon ride, the sunset is breathtaking and the sunrise? Well, there aren’t any words to describe it.
So if you are truly looking for a place to unwind during your holiday without all that noise and traffic and massive amount of people, give Sanur a chance. Mass tourism hasn’t gotten its hands on Sanur (and we pray it never will) which leaves everyone, local, expats and tourists alike a lot more calm and a lot more happy.
