Jukung cruise

Relaxing and worthwhile

What we say: 4.5 stars

A jukung is the small wooden double outrigger boat (well really a canoe) that you'll see pulled up on just about every beach in Indonesia.

Primarily used for fishing, the traditional jukungs use a lanteen sail (a triangle-shaped sail), though today most also have a small engine to keep them going through the doldrums.

In Sanur, while some are still used for fishing, many are now used for pleasure sailing and can be hired for an hour of sailing up and down the beach during high tide. It might sound a bit twee, but it is actually a really pleasant way to lose an hour or so. The boats can comfortably seat two or three adults (plus the boatman) and can be hired mainly towards the northern end of Sanur beach. Prices are variable and you will need to bargain to get a reasonable price (say around 200,000 rupiah, for the boat, for an hour).

Recommended.
