A couple of fun right and left reefbreaks in front of the classic Tanjung Sari Hotel and the Sanur beach markets. The right can get awesome at dead low tide with a big swell (wear your reef boots). It offers a very long and fast ride at low tide, but at high tide it tends to break into sections and is therefore rarely ridden by tourist surfers.
These days lots of the local Sanur kids learn to surf here on the small days, so if you paddle out practice your Indonesian on them and make friends.
Sanur’s hotel beachfront has a totally different feel to Kuta, more mature and sedate, but the town is renowned for Black Magic, and particularly aggressive locals at the main Sanur Reef break. Sanur breaks too rarely, a bit like Kirra or Noosa.
