About the volunteer workProgram Description Sanur presents you with quiet and idyllic beaches that are largely undisturbed by the heavy influx of tourists to Bali each year. The week is dedicated to relaxing and spending most of your time on the beach, it however includes a few organised activities such as an introductory bike ride through the commercial area and along the coast and also an opportunity to explore the beautiful world that lies beneath the waves through snorkeling. Apart from this, participants can spend all their free time at the beach or in the shopping area. Sanur boasts a wide-range of restaurants that cater to every palate and budget. You could spend the entire week reading, shopping and taking in the sights and sounds of Sanur or inspired by its beauty you could take to a bit of photography or writing. Who knows, it could draw out the hidden artist or poet in you. Sanur also allows you the opportunity to pamper yourself at one of its many local spas. And for those who don't like the idea of spending their holidays indoors, you may choose between scuba diving, sea-kayaking, kite-surfing, parasailing and a host of other activities that are on offer. Although restricted to a minimum of 2 persons, the Beach Holiday offers you a change of scenery and the perfect getaway after a lengthy 3 week program.
