More information about Bali public transportation system:

– Trans Sarbagita Bus Stop/Shelter/Halte.
– Batubulan Micro/Mini Bus Station.
– Ubung Micro/Mini Bus Station.

*) It’s really not efficient trip using public transport in Bali. Waste your time, energy and money. There is no fixed price in Bali transportation system, except Trans Sarbagita. If the passenger full loaded you will get the price above, but if quiet (little) passenger you will pay more expensive. Seems they applied operational cost basis since the public transport not so popular today (quiet).

**) For backpacker i recommend you to rent a scooter to reach this place and use google map as your navigator.

***) You can also use Go-jek or Grab transport. Their price reasonable, but you have to install the apps first and the driver may not be able to speak english.

****) You can also use Perama shuttle bus. Their price is reasonable, but you have to check their schedule first on their website for booking: Perama Shuttle Bus.

*****) If you prefer quiet beach, don’t access via Hang Tuah street. It will be crowded by local. Better you access the beach via Segara Ayu street or Pantai Sindu street or Pantai Karang street. It will be perfect place to relax on the beach.

      Thanks for share your Yoga experience in Sanur beach.
      Sanur beach more quiet than Kuta beach.
      It’s favorite place for retired expatriates in Bali.
      Also it’s nice place for do some exercise like running, walking, cycling, watch sunrise, etc.

          Hello Niki,

          Free Yoga at Sanur beach not provide any yoga mat.
          You need to bring your own yoga mat.

          Everyday yoga in the morning.
          Monday till Friday in the afternoon.
          Except, on Hindus special day there is no yoga class.

          You’re welcome.
