What to do at Mertasari Beach

Mertasari enjoys rather strong winds year-round, making it a popular spot for windsurfers and kite surfers. Its vast flat field serves as a take-off and landing spot for paramotoring and paragliding. Some areas along the beach are protected by artificial wave breakers. Swimming isn’t ideal, but you can enjoy ocean kayaking if you’re not a fan of extreme water sports.

The dining scene in Mertasari ranges from resort-owned restaurants to local vendors selling cheap refreshments and snacks near the shoreline. Mertasari Beach is close to Sanur’s historical landmarks, including the Bali Museum, Jagatnatha Temple, Werdhi Budaya Art Centre, and the Bajra Sandhi Monument.
