The Avocado Factory in Canggu moves as much as 100 kgs of avocados in a single day. The two-story streetside cafe has a menu that offers avocado dishes in incredibly innovative ways including all the classics, and then some – truffled eggs benedict, avo pancakes dripping with berry sauce, smoked salmon, rocket and avocado piadina topped with poached eggs, and even a creamy avocado basque cheesecake that is seriously delicious.
There’s already a crew lounging in the shallow edges of the pool, their icy cocktails a stark contrast to the blue and white of the venue – mango and strawberry frozen margaritas are working their magic as the clock ticks towards the adults-only hour at 3pm. The tunes are familiar and fun, nothing too heavy early in the day but hang around and the urge to dance gets stronger. Might be the margaritas!

Cocktail Anthology consists of eponymous drinks named after expatriates of the time like American anthropologist, Margaret Mead who chose the highland village of Bayung Gede for her work. Mead documented 200 photographs from 1936 to 1939 where she vividly captured the everyday lives of the men, women, and children of her adopted village. As an author and academic, Mead was in her element calling Bali life “a rhythmic, patterned unreality of pleasant, significant movement, centered in one’s own body to which all emotions long ago withdrew.”
Sanur started out of course as a ‘60s tourist destination with the Bali Beach Hotel (now called The Grand Inna Bali Beach). Japanese war reparation money built the landmark property and imported industrial sand to shore up the beaches. The bunkers of the Bali Beach Golf Course also grew this way; a once tricky nine-holer with caddies schooled by the minding of ageing expatriates, that is now a mere memory.
