Sunrise at Sanur Beach
Ebizza Tour Guide – In 1906 the northern part of Sanur Beach was used as the landing site for the Dutch invasion troops during the intervention in Bali. During World War II, Sanur was again the entry point through which the Japanese forces landed to occupy the island of Bali.
This beach introduced first time by a Belgian painter named A.J. Le Mayeur de Merpes on 1932. At that time he met a girl named Nyi Nyoman Polok. Then they establish a relationship and later they were married. He transformed his house into a museum, Museum Le Mayeur, where about 80 of his masterpiece paintings are exhibited. Bali Orchid Garden, a park located about 3 km north of Sanur is worth a visit as well. In 1958 Adrean Jean Mayeur de Merpes died and in 1985 Nyi Nyoman Polok also died.
Bali Beach Hotel in Sanur was built by Indonesian President Sukarno in 1963, and boosted tourism in Bali. Prior to it only three hotels existed on the island. Construction of hotels and restaurants began to spread throughout Bali.
Today Sanur contains a number of hotel resorts such as the Fairmont Sanur Beach Bali and Bali Hyatt (currently under renovation, not to be confused with the Grand Hyatt in Nusa Dua). Sanur is also home to a growing number of popular villa resorts.

*) There are so many shops, cafe & restaurant around the beach. But, i prefer try local food. Warung Mak Beng, they serving fried fish and fish soup. Otherwise, you can try breakfast at Warung Nasi Bali Men Weti. But, this place so busy, long queue. It makes you curious and want to try how tasty it is.
**) For the coffee shop i recommend ‘Simply Brew’ cafe. They are very serious to make high quality coffee.
There are some bathroom & toilet.
