Beach, Bali
The city of Sanur o­n the southeastern side of the island is o­ne of Bali's largest traditional villages and is also o­ne of the island's first resort towns. This beautiful city is o­nly a ten minute drive from the main city Denpasar, where the international airport is, and from the beach, you can see the Sacred Temple of Ratu Ayu of Singgi. The phenomenal long white sandy beach has a foot path that is popular amongst walkers, joggers and cyclers. During low tide, the beach gets really wide and is great for building sandcastles or playing volleyball. Waters are always calm, making it a great beach for sea kayaking and waterskiing, and from the beach you can see the traditional boats of the native fishermen.

Almost exactly o­n the opposite side of the island, still o­nly ten minutes from the city of Denpasar lies Kuta beach, an incredibly popular destination for tourists. The beach is known as a party beach, and there is always a wealth of activities to do o­n Kuta. During the daytime, you can find surfers, snorkelers, kayakers, jet-skiiers, windsurgers, parasailers and swimmers covering the beach.

There is a large variety of delicious restaurants, and Kuta is also home to a wide array of four star resorts, as well as plenty of more affordable accomodations.
