    Panorama of southern sanur

    This beach is found at the most southern part of Sanur. Not frequented much by tourists it is a very popular spot for the locals. Early morning finds the expats of Sanur exercising & on Sunday which is Bali's family day all the locals head to the beach with the entire family. Warung carts selling pastries & corn on the cob fill the path along the edge of the beach. The carparks are bursting. The level of noise is amazing. The Sunday after we arrived in November 2007 this beach was the site of a Hindu cleansing ritual and the beach was really crowded & the sea full of people most of them fully dressed. I felt very privileged to view this spectacle. I am sure I will not see something so fascinating again in a very long time.
    To access this beach you head along Jalan Mertasari & turn left down Jalan Tirta Empul , the carpark is at the very end.
    Along the footpath south of The Mercure Hotel are a group of very reasonably priced restaurants.

    giant kite

    i was walking along the sanur beach when i found the giant kite flying above me on the blue blue sky.
    balinese traditional kite is bigger than the ordinary one, sometimes it is as big as 15 meters!! every year, on padanggalak beach (near sanur) an international kite competition is held. all banjar (village) participate on the competition. to bring the giant kite from the village to the competition beach some of them use truck and some carried it by about 10 people along the road. it caused traffic jam on the street of course. but balineses are very understandable with all kind of special occassions.

    you can find this kind of balinese traditional boat everywhere around bali, but the one in the picture was in sanur. it is called jukung. something interesting about it, the boats has faces! i think the ones in java or lombok doesn't have any faces. i have no idea why, but maybe for only decoration :)
