What are the first things that come to mind when you think of Bali? It’s not hard to imagine the beautiful sweeping shorelines, exotic culinary feasts, and of course, the iconic temples and shrines that decorate the island. In fact, there’s a common saying in Bali that there are more shrines on the island than there are houses; with figures often estimating between 6,000 to 12,000 large temples on the island. With that said, Sanur serves as one of the best places for anyone wanting to explore Bali’s charming features. Sanur is known for its quiet and serene atmosphere, spectacular sunrises, and a whole host of culinary options to be had, including the Sanur night market.
If this is your first time visiting Bali, then this quick guide should serve you well. And even if you’re not new to Sanur, perhaps this article can spark new activity ideas for you to try that you’ve never thought of before.
Sanur Night Market
To start off the list, we’ll be sharing a local secret, the Sanur night market. Also known as Sindhu night market, this market opens in the evening from 5:00 pm to 11:00pm, sometimes even later when the crowd still lingers in the market.
So, what can you find in Sanur night market? You’ll be pleased to know that all sorts of local cuisines are available in the market. Anything from light snacks and beverages, to authentic Balinese dishes such as nasi campur and roaster pork can be had here. And the best part is that the prices are set to local standards, meaning you can try just about anything in the market for the price of a premium meal at a boutique cafe.
Sunrise at Sindhu Beach
Speaking of Sindhu market, the aptly named Sindhu Beach is just a few minutes walking distance from the market. Come back to the beach in the early morning to gaze on the spectacular sunrise from Sindhu. In fact, you can catch the sunrise from anywhere along the coastline in Sanur. Also, if you’re early enough you can even sit in one of the gazebos that decorate the beach.
