Why Jimbaran Beach is special ?
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.
The land gently slopes away from the beach revealing exclusive celebrity haunts hidden under a canopy of leafy tropical forests.
What to explore at Jimbaran Beach?
Surfing, There are a couple of good surf breaks off the airport which are easiest accessed from Jimbaran Bay. It is too far to paddle out, but boats are easily chartered from the beach in the middle areas of the bay or close to the fish market. When the surf is rolling here it is very good but it can be a bit unreliable.
Swimming, This is a great bay for swimming with perhaps the safest waters in the whole of Bali. You will find lots of local children come to beach to swim in the evenings - a sure sign that the waters are safe.

We were not full to the brim though we were not big eaters. However, the experience of dining on sand of the bay overlooking the sea was quite worthy albeit the expensive dinner. The traffic was not very smooth as the road in and out f
