Jimbaran is located about 10 minutes by car south of the international airport. A good place to launch trips to explore places like Kuta or Nusa Dua, Jimbaran is also the home of a very calm, quiet bay with a gorgeous white-sand beach that stretches for roughly two kilometers. Formerly, a tiny fishing village, the area has now become home to many luxury Jimbaran hotels, villas and other types of accommodation.
There is a traditional fish market at the north end of the bay which supplies many restaurants famous for serving delicious barbeque seafood dinners on tables set right on the beach sand. The water at Jimbaran bay is excellent for swimming with a couple of good surf breaks near the airport. The long, soft sands of Jimbaran bay are perfect for sunbathing and romantic strolls along the beach. In the early evening, visitors can find a seat at one of the elegant bars in the area for a refreshing cocktail whilst watching the sunset.
