Jimbaran, Indonesia

This resort, best suited for a relaxing holiday, is located in the southwest of Bali, 5-8 km from the airport, about 10 km from Denpasar city center and 20 km from Nusa Dua. The beaches here are small, bulk, the sea is quite quiet, since Jimbaran is located in a bay. Therefore, people come here more often with children than to other resorts in Bali. The resort has only two 5 * luxury hotels – Four Seasons Jimbaran and Ritz Carlton, as well as the “four” Keraton Jimbaran.

How to get to Jimbaran

There is Ngurah Rai International Airport just 15 minutes drive from Jambaran. For a taxi to the resort, you will be charged about 60-80 thousand rupees, and if you are going to stay in one of the resort hotels, you can not pay at all – you just need to order a free airport transfer.

According to Toppharmacyschools, Jimbaran can be reached by car from Legian or Seminyak in just twenty minutes, a little more from Sanur. Intercity buses near the resort almost do not run, in this way it can only be reached from Tegal.

As elsewhere in Bali, it is most convenient to move around the resort either by taxi or by a rented motorcycle. In addition, do not miss the opportunity to walk about Jimbarana – this is one of the best places for walking in all of South Bali.


Once in Jimbaran, in no case can you ignore the local seafood – many tourists come here just for them.

Along the entire coast there are about fifty small restaurants that cook fish and seafood on the grill. All these restaurants are divided into separate groups, of which the one located just south of the Four Seasons Hotel is now the most popular.

The tables of these restaurants are usually set right on the sand, so you are guaranteed to get a seat with a great view of the stunning local sunsets – just be careful not to get your feet wet during high tide.

Apart from a huge variety of seafood, the choice of restaurant menus in Jimbaran is not too great. Most likely, only steamed vegetables, rice or french fries will be offered as a side dish. The average bill for two is usually about 400-450 thousand rupees, including drinks. But on the spot you will most likely be offered only local beer, if you want to drink wine, it is better to bring it with you.

There is practically no nightlife in Jimbaran, so if you decide to go out for a drink in the late evening, you will be in for some difficulties. Pretty much the only place where cocktails are made is PJ’s Bar, located in the Four Seasons Hotel.

Jimbaran beaches

Jimbaran Beach has a very high rating in Bali, and not only because of its natural qualities. Another indisputable plus is a much smaller number of itinerant traders compared to other parts of the coast of the island. Excellent opportunities for diving and snorkeling at the resort create coastal coral reefs with a colorful underwater world. And towards Uluwatu stretch the famous Balinese “surfing beaches”.

Low tides in Jimbaran are from 16:00, so vacationers there, compared to Nusa Dua and Benoa, can spend more time on the beach, swim and sunbathe.

Entertainment and attractions

The sea, the beaches, again the sea and again the beaches, and in addition – breathtaking sunsets, which are best enjoyed from the outdoor terrace of a coastal restaurant. Even in Jimbaran Bay, excellent waves are periodically observed – the dream of every surfer. Finally, local spa centers delight with a high level of work and quality of procedures.
