Sanur Rice Paddies & Jogging Path In Denpasar, Bali
Recently my wife and I discovered a group of rice paddies near Sanur that is virtually unknown to tourists, but they’re just as green as any of the others in Bali!
A new jogging path through the fields was just added in 2018, but the whole area is still very quiet and we only saw a handful of friendly locals and farmers during the entire hour or two that we spent there.This travel guide will explain how to get there, and everything you need to know before you go!
Visiting The Rice Fields
There’s a new walking path here in good condition, and you can take your bicycle or scooter on it for a nice scenic ride.
But where this place really shines is for taking drone photos. We had the whole place to ourselves and the aerial views were incredible.
The green rice fields look super photogenic from above, and you can see the patchwork stretching out in all directions.
With the high speed of development in Bali and especially the Sanur/Denpasar area, sadly these rice paddies may not be around for much longer before they’re replaced by buildings. So enjoy them while you can!
FREE as of 2020.
There’s no parking fee or entry fee.
How To Get To The Sanur Rice Paddies
The rice fields are located west of Sanur, Bali.
We only walked part of the path and then turned back. If you walk the full path, it goes on for what appears to be a few miles.
Be careful if you decide to step off the concrete path and walk through the rice fields. I did this for a few minutes and saw a green snake by my feet.
Bali Private Driver & Motorbike Rental
If you want to explore Bali in the comfort and safety of a private car with a driver, my top recommendation would be Klook.
Their price is 450k IDR ($30 USD) for a full day of driving and sightseeing in Bali (up to 10 hours) for 1-5 passengers. That's the total price for the whole car + driver + petrol! It's a steal.
If you'd rather travel by motorbike, they have that too. Their scooter rentals start at 85k IDR (~$6) and include a helmet, rain coat, and pickup in the south Bali area.
We've used Klook for lots of tours and activities around the world, and they're great! Highly recommended.
