Jimbaran Beach

Jimbaran is a beautiful bay with white sandy beach located just a bit south of the Bali International Airport (DPS). The local fisherman living in the vicinity still work hard and sell their freshly caught fishes, clams, squids, and crabs at the traditional market or hotels and restaurants nearby. You will find world-class beach resorts and boutique hotels with luxury spas and restaurants, but also mid-range accommodation is available.
This bay is famous for its many fish-restaurants that set up their tables directly on the beach where they serve the freshest seafood in the evening. If you love seafood, it’s one the the must-visit places in Bali. The area is mostly known as Jimbaran, while the northern half of the bay is actually called Kedonganan, where you can find one of the main fish-markets that starts to sell the “catch of the night” in the early morning hours.

What’s Jimbaran Like?
Jimbaran still has that sleepy fishing village vibe and it’s one of the reasons that we think it does so well with families. It’s the kind of place where everyone knows everyone and keeps an eye out for each other. (Though we still don’t recommend leaving your bags unattended). The beaches are much more relaxed than the busiest beaches in Seminyak, Legian, etc. and they’re every bit as nice. We love swimming in Jimbaran as the water is warm, calm and shallow and it’s perfect to teach a new swimmer in too. We’d rather teach someone in the Indian Ocean than in a swimming pool, to be honest.
