Jimbaran Bay is one of the prettiest bays in Bali, with calm blue waters and a beautiful beach. The bay is located just south of the airport and while planes can be seen flying majestically in and out, disturbing noise does not reach the beach.
There’s not much in the way of facilities for tourists outside the hotels here, except for the seafood restaurants that open up at night on the beach selling delicious BBQ’d seafood. Even if you’re not staying in Jimbaran Bay, make sure you head down here for dinner one night. It’s fairly basic, usually plastic chairs and tables out in the sand, but the setting is perfect, especially at sunset and it’s one of my Bali highlights.
