You can navigate the area on foot and you’re never too far from the beach or a great restaurant. This also means you can easily head back to your villa or hotel when the kids need a nap. As this is one of the most popular areas in Bali, there’s also plenty of family-friendly accommodation available in Seminyak. Seminyak works as a great base for exploring other parts of Bali, too. Waterbom Bali waterpark is just 20 minutes away and you can reach Jimbaran and Nusa Dua in a 40-minute drive.

Why it’s great for families

Sanur was one of the original beach resorts in Bali and maintains a laid-back and relax ambiance to this day. The beach in Sanur is shielded by a reef, so the waters are tranquil and shallow, i.e. perfect for the kids to splash around in. Sanur is dotted with family-friendly restaurants, many of them offering cuisine leaning on the healthy side. Many visitors and expats choose to make their way around the neighbourhood on bicycle – totally unheard of in busy Seminyak and Kuta. If you’re looking to do a day trip to their neighbouring islands, you can easily catch a boat from Sanur.
