If you want a little of the coolness and glamour of some of those beachside bars and restaurants found in Seminyak and the like — but without the crowds — then there’s a hidden gem about 25 minutes from The Villa Sanur. If you like to surf, even better — this place includes a world-class wave (an ASP tour event was held there in mid 2013) that’s a one minute paddle.
Kommune is located at Keremas beach. So from Sanur, you head in the opposite direction to Seminyak, Canggu, and so on — instead heading out along the bypass towards Candidasa. It’s easy to arrange a driver for a day trip up there. Or if you have a vehicle and a smartphone, Google Maps can help get you there.
It’s a nice place to chill out for the afternoon with plenty of area to lounge and a great pool that literally sits on the edge of the beach.
