Jimbaran is a fishing village and coastal resort south of Kuta on the Indonesian island of Bali. Jimbaran Bay has a long beach with calm waters. It’s lined with fish restaurants and backed by tropical forest. At its northern end, colorful boats are pulled up by the lively, open-air Kedonganan fish market. Southwest of the bay are Dreamland Beach and Balangan Beach, known for their strong surf waves.
Jimbaran has a surprisingly unique combination of luxury resorts within an authentic local community. It’s a great area to relax, have a seafood dinner on the beach, visit the local markets and spend the day at the beach.
Within the community, there are predominantly local stores, in particular, a large fresh food market in the morning and a seafood market on the beach where you can see the fisherman still bringing in their catch.
