Sanur, located on Bali's southeastern coast, is a prime destination for budget travelers. It offers a balanced mix of affordable accommodations, from hostels to guesthouses, and an array of street food stalls and local warungs where you can savor Indonesian cuisine without straining your budget.

The town's tranquil beach, ideal for swimming and relaxation, is entirely free to enjoy, and the sunrise views are captivating. Sanur's central location makes it a cost-effective base for exploring Bali's cultural sites and natural wonders, including temples and traditional markets, as well as offering convenient access to day trips to destinations like Ubud and Uluwatu.

We visited here in 2002 and 2012.
