Depending on where you are staying in Sanur you can either walk, grab a Bluebird taxi or Go-Jek or ride a pushbike or motorbike.

When we have stayed in the southern end of Sanur, we grabbed a Go-Jek for a whole AUD$1.10 (USD 75c). We have also ridden a pushbike on an early morning market tour from southern Sanur.
