With the departure of my friends, I moved on from luxurious Seminyak to the eastern board and the original Balinese beach resort area of Sanur. I'd distinctly remembered passing by the area the last time en route to the central region of Ubud, and thought to myself that I should check out the place if I ever had the opportunity.

And so here I was, two years later.

Sanur can pretty much be described as a very quiet, and older version of Seminyak, with a correspondingly reflective resident composition of long-term retired expatriates. Nicknamed "Snore" because even the waves here are gentler due to the protective reef that lies just off the beach, there are certainly no loud parties or boisterous crowds here. Apart from the obvious retiree population, the rest of the denizes even appear to be more Balinese and local. Being located on the southeastern coast, Sanur is also the jumping off point for some nearby offshore islands, which would be my next destination.

Stayed at Keke Homestay.

Collection of works from a Belgian artist who arrived in Bali almost a century ago, and decided to settle there. After his and his (much younger) Balinese muse and wife's deaths, their house and his remaining works were converted to this museum. Like many of the other foreign artists who settled in Bali, I noticed they had a penchant for drawing/painting topless Balinese women...

Protected by a reef which causes most of the waves to break offshore some distance from the beach, the gentle laps of the water that does make it to Sanur Beach are so soft and quiet that the place is sometimes nicknamed "Snore".
