A Stroll Along Sindhu Beach

Dining | Written By, NOW! BALI |

Today Sanur may not take the spotlight, but Bali’s first tourist destination still commands respect for its serene setting. Despite the shift in focus of the tourism industry to Seminyak and Kuta, Sanur is still growing. New places of interest and old favourites stand side-by-side. Visiting Sanur these days is like discovering a new destination all over again with its sunrise and white sand beaches. One of the best beaches is Sindhu Beach, which lies between Grand Inna Bali Beach Hotel and Jalan Pantai Sindu. The best time to go is early morning but night time is worth a try too. Here’s what we found there:

Today Sanur may not take the spotlight, but Bali’s first tourist destination still commands respect for its serene setting. Despite the shift in focus of the tourism industry to Seminyak and Kuta, Sanur is still growing. New places of interest and old favourites stand side-by-side.

Visiting Sanur these days is like discovering a new destination all over again with its sunrise and white sand beaches. One of the best beaches is Sindhu Beach, which lies between Grand Inna Bali Beach Hotel and Jalan Pantai Sindu. The best time to go is early morning but night time is worth a try too. Here’s what we found there:

-We started at the end of Jalan Segara Ayu, where there’s a local culinary gem called Men Weti. This street-side restaurant serves Chicken Mixed Rice from 7.30 am until just before noon. 

-Small, neighborly Sanur Beach Market right on the corner of Jalan Segara Ayu, is a place worth visiting to pick up souvenirs and clothing. 

-Then comes Segara Village Hotel, which boasts some excellent venues for organic food (Minami Bar & Grill), mean Cappucinos (Byrdhouse Bar & Terracce), a pool bar (Jacuzzi Bar), and International and Indonesian cuisine (Le Pirate Restaurant).  All of these places, except for Minami Bar & Grill, open from 7.30 am until late. 

-Toot Sie Bar & Restaurant looks warm and relaxing with a beachfront seating area out front. It serves anything from the ubiquitous Nasi Goreng to Seafood Baskets to Pastas. 

-Rosetta Coffee Shop follows right after Toot Sie.

-Ayu Spa and Beauty Salon, the only salon in Bali (that we know of) that opens at 7.30am. 

-Luhtu’s Coffee Shop, next to Ayu Spa and Beauty Salon, is the place to go for breakfast in a hidden garden setting.

-Crossing Jalan Pantai Sindhu will take you to Inna Sindhu Beach Hotel, complete with its own coffee shop:  Swargan Coffee Beans

-Along the way, more small clothing and souvenir shops sell pretty much the same stuff as those in Sanur Beach Market.

-Right across from Inna Sindhu Beach Hotel is a small shack with display aquarium owned by the Dwarawati Turtle Conservation Group.

-The journey ends at Mango Beach Bar & Restaurant, another decent spot to have breakfast but more lively in the evening with regular live Reggae performances.
