Sanur’s iconic coastline stretches almost 8km and, with almost 5km containing a walking and cycle path, it can be easily explored during a gentle stroll or bike ride. With clear skies in the morning, Mount Agung and the neighbouring islands of Nusa Lembongan and Nusa Penida can be seen in the distance and in the evening, the sun sets over the Mangrove trees.

Restaurant Massimo has been part of Sanur since 1996 and serves up rustic Italian cuisine inspired by the culinary style of Salento, in South-Eastern Italy. Massimo is arguably most well-renowned for its homemade gelato, evidenced by the long queues that can be seen almost every night. Customers are never spoiled for choice; there is a range of flavours, with an array of vibrant colours and decorations, and with its silky-smooth texture, Massimo Gelato really is a feast for the senses.

You can’t take one home but have you ever wanted to adopt a turtle? Now you can. The Turtle Conservation and Education Centre rescue turtles, both young and old, saving them from uninhabitable tourist environments and nursing them to full health before releasing them back into the wild. Release programs usually operate in the mornings between 09:00 - 10:00 and late afternoons from 15:00 - 17:00, July – October. However, guests are advised to check that there are turtles available.

Since the 1970s, Uluwatu Balinese Lace has drawn on traditional local craft skills to produce a unique quality of lace, known as ‘krawang’. It is not uncommon for these works of art to take more than five days to produce as the lace is stretched onto bamboo hoops and hand-sewn, with every layer being carefully constructed. This atelier employs over 500 craftspeople, is a zero-emission factory and is highly committed to sustainable manufacturing and ethical sourcing.
