About Jimbaran

Nestled on Bali's Bukit Peninsula, close to the island’s southern tip, Jimbaran is famed for is dazzling white sand beaches and fantastic seafood. Within easy reach of party-central Seminyak and hip Canggu, this is a more private, tranquil spot, and a long-time honeymoon favourite. With the best places to stay in Jimbaran ranging from sleek boutique hotels to expansive beachfront resorts, there's something for guests of all ages and interests.

Spend your days strolling along postcard-perfect Jimbaran Bay, bronzing in the sunshine or feasting on fresh seafood at simple oceanside eateries. Jimbaran was originally a fishing village, and its cuisine has become legendary; the shacks which stud the beach specialise in mouth-watering fish and prawn dishes. The Jimbaran Fish Market is well worth a visit, as is the striking Puma Ulun Siwi temple, just across the road. To kick back in hidden coves, head to Tegal Wangi Beach, which has a wild, rocky coastline. Try your hand at fishing out on the calmer waters of Jimbaran Bay, or go sailing, swimming and kayaking.

Nearby Uluwatu promises some of Bali’s best surf, whilst you’ll find chic boutiques and trendy cafés in Canggu and late-night dancing in Seminyak. Bali really is the ideal destination for a beach break or luxurious honeymoon; many of the best places to stay in Jimbaran offer gorgeous spas, romantic guest rooms and candlelit dinners within sight of the sea.
