Shopping in Sanur is a laidback and easy-going affair, much in line with the general character of this quiet beach resort area. While the number of hotels and restaurants in Sanur overshadow the shops and boutiques that line its major streets, there are a select number of locations offering arts and crafts, fashion items and curios to take back home as a personal memento or souvenir.

    While not offering an ample selection of shops when compared to Bali’s other resort destinations such as Ubud or Seminyak, Sanur still has its own bargains for you to discover. Your Sanur hotel or resort may host its own art gallery or boutique, but you can always venture out along Jalan Danau Tamblingan, or right on the main beach footpath toward Sanur Beach’s colourful art markets.


    Jalan Danau Tamblingan Shopping Street

    Jalan Danau Tamblingan is Sanur’s main street and runs north-south parallel to the eastern coastline. The 2.5-km length is lined with various brand boutiques and locally run art shops. Between this street and the beach are some of the main hotels and villa resorts of the area.

    A convenient footpath provides a leisure walk right out of your hotel, and within walking distance is the traditional Pasar Senggol – the local food market. The art shops mostly sell typical art and handicraft items of varying prices and quality. Some even feature fixed prices to save visitors the usual haggling. Side streets branching off from Tamblingan also feature ‘hidden’ shops that might just have the knick-knack you are looking for.

    Sindhu Beach Art Market

    The Sindhu Beach Art Market is a collection of small different art and souvenir shops at the northern end of the Jalan Segara Ayu beach path. It starts from the namesake street of Jalan Pantai Sindhu and goes for about 400 metres south. The market area is less crowded when compared to those in the other beach resort areas in Bali.

    It’s a small complex of shops that each offers a wide variety of clothing, sarongs, jewellery, woodcarvings and other handicrafts. There’s plenty to browse through and barter for, and there’s even a tailor here, too.

    Sindu Market is the main fresh market within the whole Sanur village area, located near the northern end of Sanur’s Jalan Danau Tamblingan road. Referred to locally as ‘Pasar Sindu’, the market is better known among regular visitors as a night market, where you can discover a bustling street-food vendor scene that occupies most of its front parking space after sundown.

    Before sunset, though, the Sindu Market is already very much alive, particularly within the main area sheltered under its large warehouse-like structure. Although it carries ‘traditional’ in its name, the market is clean and modern, with around 150 stands along white ceramic tiled lanes. The choice of goods here is very varied, with everything from fresh fruits, vegetables and spices to flowers and young coconut leaves for daily Hindu Balinese offerings.
