Jimbaran Bay, Jimbaran

Splash in the blue sea, work on your surfing skills, or grab a good book and forget your cares at Jimbaran Bay, a white-sand stretch of Balinese coastline. Just a stone's throw from Kuta and the area's international airport, this spot remains relatively uncrowded, and the clear, clean waters invite you for a dip. Rocks can hamper entrance into the sea at low tide, however, so consider bringing water shoes. Surfers can rent equipment on site and perfect their skills with a private lesson. A walk away from the water you'll find a string of seafood eateries, offering nourishment and a relaxed atmosphere to famished visitors from around the globe. Plan to see Jimbaran Bay and other attractions that appeal to you using our Jimbaran vacation planner.

    Given that we know that Bali is not Sardinia nor the Caribbean, I personally think that those who choose this island doesn't just want sea. If so you will not be disappointed, because this, like other places in Bali, is a place where you fill your eyes for the encounter of a different nature exotic for us and a vibrant culture. If you like this, I can definitely recommend Jimbaran Beach. The beach looks in the morning and another in the evening. In the morning you will find: Golden Sands, clean (at least in the South, one of the hotels, where it was me), high tide and the waters calm enough for swimming, thanks to the reef. Please note that you are the ocean and the Undertow is strong. It is very unusual to observe how the jungle meets the beach: for us it is not usual to see all that bright green at the beach. In this sense the hotel, though present, were built with respect (in my Sardinia should learn!). In the evening the sea withdrew and the beach takes on massive proportions. It's a very long and very poetic. All the Balinese released at Beach and you'll see traditional boats moored COB roasters, picnic, long waves ridden by young surfers and soccer matches between kids with Copacabana-style stunts. The legendary fish grill put out the tables and begin to roast, smoke rises from the huts and the colors are crazy. The sunset is awesome. Walking on the shore, where until a few hours before the water was high, too funny! Regarding the services, there are several beach club where drinks and rent umbrellas and chairs. There are, of course, rental of surfboards with lessons. It is a good place for anyone who is starting, in fact we see many children beginners. In general I think is one of the most child-friendly beaches in Bali.

    Stayed the last 4 nights of our trip to Bali at Jimbaran. It is a very quiet area, we were on the beach virtually alone during the day. We recommend it to rest and enjoy the sunsets.

Where to stay in Jimbaran

After nearly 30 years of development spurred on by tourism, Jimbaran offers accommodations aplenty in the middle and upper price brackets, but not much for budget travelers. You can splurge by staying at one of several five-star beach resorts, or go for something simpler--but still comfortable--at one of the town's many mid-range hotels. Make sure to choose west-facing accommodations with a clear view if you want to enjoy one of Jimbaran's famous sunsets. Budget travelers are better off staying in nearby Kuta and making day trips to Jimbaran.
