We are planning a trip to Bali in April. 2 adults and a 10 year old boy. The beach is important to us. We would like to be able to swim safely and enjoy lovely clean sand and water (also not be dependent on tide). Not sure if it is possible to snorkel anywhere directly from the beach in Bali? Anyway the packages we are looking at at the moment go to either the Bali Garden Beach Resort - Kuta, Discovery Kartika Plaza - Kuta/Tubau or Hotel Bali Hyatt - Sanur. Can anyone give me info on the beaches at these hotels?
Also any other general info surrounding the Hotels would be really useful - we would hate to be in a very commercial area, but we will want to walk to local restaurants etc for dinner (preferably local cuisne - a McDonalds right near by would be our worst nightmare).
Thanks for any info.
