Jimbaran beach and the famous Jimbaran Bay are located on Bali’s southwestern coast of the narrow isthmus connecting the Bali mainland and the Bukit Peninsula. The beach and the bay of Jimbaran offers small secluded areas, where tranquility and peace are the perfect antidote to a stressful world.
A small fishing village located within a beautiful sandy bay of Jimbaran on the southern Bukit peninsula. The few accommodations here range from basic losmen to world class luxury hotels.
Jimbaran is the realm of luxury hotels, the likes of the Four Seasons Resort at Jimbaran Bay and the InterContinental Bali Resort & Spa.
The pristine white sand beach is protected by a reef and has few waves, making it ideal for families with young children.
A significant part of the beach is lined with restaurants offering the day’s catch at reasonable prices–fresh from the fishing fleet of nearby Kedonganan. Many day-trippers choose to make this the final stop of their journey in order to enjoy Bali’s best seafood assortment while lapping up another spectacular sunset.
Jimbaran has an increasing number of rather chic shops but there is little or no nightlife here. It has the advantage of being a little closer to Kuta and Seminyak and the cultural highlights of Central Bali.
The beach of Jimbaran Bay is famous for its tranquil waters (a true luxury in Bali, known for unforgiving waves and cruel back currents), soft velvety sand and scenic sunsets.
Jimbaran Sefood Restaurants:
Eating seafood on the beach in Jimbaran is a quintessential part of many a visitor’s itinerary when coming to Bali. Jimbaran Bay is home to about fifty grilled seafood restaurants in three different groupings, all set along the beach. The three sections are Muaya (in the very south), Kedonganan (in the middle) and Kelan (north of the fish market). Each of the restaurants is much of a muchness and of the groupings, the most southerly closest to the Four Seasons is the most popular these days. Tables are set up right on the sand and if you sit at the lowest tables at high tide, you can even get your feet wet. The sea breeze is cool, the sunsets are beautiful and the whole area is lit by oil torches after dark.
