10 New Places to Do in Sanur: Coastal town located on the southeast coast of the island of Bali, Indonesia. It’s known for its picturesque beaches, calm waters, and a relaxed, family-friendly atmosphere. The Beaches are the main attraction, with a long stretch of golden sand and a shallow reef that creates a lagoon with calm, clear waters. It’s an excellent spot for swimming, snorkeling, and other water activities. It also offers a wide range of dining options, from casual beachfront cafes to upscale restaurants serving both Indonesian and international cuisine. Meanwhile, Sanur always has new interesting places to offer, here are some new places to check out:

Naeun is a newly established cafe located in Sanur. Rated one of the most aesthetic spots by the locals, the cafe overlooks a beautiful garden full of flowers. Specifically, flowers called “kamboja” or Frangipani, are dominated by the color pink. They also have a serene refreshment pool surrounded by trees. You can access the pool after purchasing any of their food or beverages. The cafe is also surrounded by a Balinese gazebo and is actually in the same location as a villa called Parigata. Lastly, they serve a variety of food for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
2. KooD – Kolaborasi Untuk Desa
Recently established during COVID-19, KooD is a vegan restaurant that collaborated with local farmers to support and empower Balinese businesses. With such affordable prices, there are many choices of vegan noodles, pizzas, burgers, desserts, ice cream, snacks, and delicious plant-based milk. The restaurant is self-service, meaning you have to take your own food from the cashier. After finishing your plates, you will also take them to a cabinet. My personal favorite is the spicy mayo noodles with fresh vegetables, tofu, and mayo sauce. You also can’t miss the peanut butter ice cream! It is so thick and has a creamy consistency.
