Jimbaran Bay, Bali
Dig your toes into the soft white sand of this long beach that fringes Jimbaran Bay and fronts a former fishing village. A choice of restaurants and luxury 5-star hotels line the beach as well atop the rocky headland at the southern end of the beach.
By day, sunbathing on the soft sand, swim in the calm lagoon and savour magical sunsets over a cold drink at one of the beachside restaurants that are renowned for fresh grilled seafood.
There are no water sports on this beach, however, hotels are usually happy to provide scuba diving, snorkelling and kayaking excursions elsewhere. For surfing, head north to Kuta or south to Uluwatu, a renowned destination for advanced surfers.
Jimbaran Bay is located south of Kuta on the west coast 6km from the airport, around 10 minutes by taxi.
