Quaint, little Jimbaran beach and the famous Jimbaran Bay are on Bali's southwestern coast, famed for delicious varieties of beachside grilled seafood. The beach is part of the narrow isthmus connecting the Bali
mainland and the Bukit Peninsula
. Every night, Jimbaran comes alive with numerous beachside warungs serving grilled fish varieties on the candlelit tables set on the sand. It is simply a wonderful and unique experience enjoying fresh seafood on the beach while watching the gentle waves of water coming from the sea and ultimately wetting your feet in the sand.
Jimbaran, also sometimes praised as the “Beverly Hills of Bali”, was actually a little fishing village in its earlier days, where people used to trade their catch at the daily market. Things started to change after the 1980s with the wave of development that completely changed the identity of the village. Today, Jimbaran is home to several luxury resorts, high-end villas, and up-market chain hotels such as Four Seasons Resort at Jimbaran Bay and the InterContinental Bali Resort & Spa, all catering to the needs of luxury tourists visiting Bali to witness the beauty and the charm of this mesmerizing island.
