The beautiful coastline of Sanur spans from the north to the south for 8 kilometres. Along this distance are a few amazing beaches that are within easy reach of quite a few Bali family resorts. While the whole stretch is known as Sanur Beach, it is actually made up of different beaches such as Reef Beach, Sindhu Beach, and Segara Ayu Beach. There is a footpath that connects these beaches with one another and it ends at the famous Grand Bali Beach. If you are staying at the Holiday Inn Resort Baruna Bali, you will be able to access these lovely beaches for incredible views, unforgettable sunsets and exciting water sports.

La Mayeur Museum, located on the Sindhub Beach behind souvenir and art stalls, is definitely a hidden treasure that is worth a visit. This fascinating memorial museum features the personal history and artwork of Adrien-Jean Le Mayeur de Merpres, an artist from Brussels who lived in Bali and had a love for its beautiful beaches. He fell in love and got married to Ni Pollok, a dancer and she became the muse for the majority of his oil painting. La Mayeur Museum is the artist's house and consists of five rooms and a main building which was the couple's living quarters. The house itself is a beautiful creation with sculpted stone walls, terrazzo tiles and other classic Balinese architectural elements.
