Event: Parade and Jukung (Traditional boat) competition
Sanur as a coastal tourism area consistently maintain their fisherman community identity. Despite the growth of hotels along the beach, the community fishing activity remains active. This identity is reflected in the Jukung competition, where boats in sanur have a special characteristic different from other areas in Bali in terms of color, design and size. To the community, “jukung” symbolizes both fishing and tourism, as it changes function from a fishing tool into a vehicle for transporting tourist for beach trips and underwater activities.
The competition takes place along sanur beach, involving more than 50 jukungs, with cultural performances to open the competition. Crowds and colorful masts is a breathtaking view as boats parade followed by a race.
