Jimbaran is famous for long stretches of beautiful white sand that come alive at night with rustic seafood barbecues.

Nestled on the Bukit Peninsula on Bali’s southern tip, its chilled-out vibe and calm waters make it a good fit for a family holiday.

It’s also a popular choice for honeymooners who stay at some of the island’s most exclusive hotels overlooking Jimbaran Bay.

Where to Stay in Jimbaran , Bali

Dreamy hilltop resorts, ocean-view villas, and beachfront hotel stays are all possible in Jimbaran.

And while luxury accommodation is what Jimbaran does best, there are budget options too. Look a little further away from the beach for homestays and bungalows at a far more inviting price.

Know Where to Go for Food and Drinks in Jimbaran

Jimbaran’s iconic seafood shacks are also incredibly well-priced.

People flock from all over the island to feast on freshly grilled fish platters at tables planted right into the sand. Jumbo prawns, lobster, swimmer crab, fish, clams, and more are all up for grabs.

And you can pick your dinner from fish tanks at the back of each restaurant! Seafood for two with a couple of Bintangs is a steal at around $35.

If you don’t fancy fish, Jimbaran boasts a handful of upscale eateries. Imaginative share plates, authentic Spanish fare, and Champagne overlooking the ocean are all possibilities.

Things to Do in Jimbaran

Swimming, sunbathing, and sundowners on the beach are the simple pleasures of a holiday in Jimbaran. If all you want to do is read by the pool or build sand castles with the kids, this is your place.

There are also some world-class spas. From Balinese massages to chakra rituals, the spa experience here is next level. Yoga studios are also present, with drop-in classes at very reasonable prices.

And if shopping’s your thing, you could try one of the local malls, Samasta Lifestyle Village or Sidewalk Jimbaran Mall.

That said, Jimbaran’s one of South Bali’s quieter areas. So, if you do find yourself looking for more, Seminyak’s nightlife and Uluwatu’s world-class surf are a short taxi ride away.
