Sanur Beach – Relaxing Introductions
The beauty of a vacation in Sanur derives from the charming pace of life seamlessly blending with quality restaurants, charming cafes, and the sliver of golden sand glinting on the beach against the sapphire waters of the Indian Ocean. The hillsides glow emerald and jade hues from the rustling palms, lush ferns, and productive rice fields. Your private transfer meets you at Ngurah Rai International Airport upon your arrival. The tiny lanes of Old Towns contain restaurants reminiscent of eating in a family home. The scent of turmeric and coconut milk emanates from the eateries. Locals and visitors stroll along the beachfront walk, the first ever built on the island, encompassing nearly three miles. Cafes contain fronts for unobstructed views of the water.
The scent of Balinese coffee drifts from the tables. Colorful wooden fishing boats speckle the shoreline with locals working on repairs. Old villas grace the boardwalk with cows grazing on the grassland sprouting to the west. You reach your luxurious accommodation and settle into the unique combination of beauty, charm, and ambiance sweeping across town. A walkway leads up the mountainside over one mile before reaching the walls of the fortified Podostrog Monastery. The small church was erected in the 12th century, with the adjacent looming figure of the larger church built in the 18th century. An engraving above the doorway contains an image of the double-headed eagle holding a snake in its claws, which is the symbol of Montenegro.
