Jimbaran Bay has an incredible beach during the day and an amazing atmosphere at night was the Indian Ocean is almost lapping about your heels whilst you're dining on the beach at one of the many seafood restaurants. If you're looking for nightlife including shops and bar I'd suggest either Kuta or Seminyak.

We hired a driver for half a day to cover Tanah Lot, Uluwatu Temple and Jimbaran Bay. All three destinations are great places to go for watching the sunset. We chose to watch the sunset as the backdrop of the Kecak and Fire dance at Uluwatu Temple. It was a great experience. After the show, our driver drove us to... More

Great view, which I suppose is the same view as right along the western beaches of Bali, but it is pretty great to eat down on the sand. Some of the restaurants have better set-ups than others. Some have cool lanterns and better tables and chairs. The place we ate at was incredibly overpriced and the seafood was pretty bad,... More

Over priced, average seafood. Over crowded, busy dirty beach and loud music. I won't hurray back and I wouldn't go out of your way to go either. On the plus, the corn is great!

this beach is amazing during the day, really comfortable even if the ocean is not that flat, but if you are here you know not to expect to find same conditions every day. During nights this place has a speactacular atmosphere that - even if too turisty - can give you a fantastic experience eating directly with tables on the... More

We enjoyed a delicious seafood platter on the beach for my husbands birthday. Ample serving great service cold beer and an ice bucket supplied to keep the beer cold. Great value happy professional helpful staff, our waitress was attentive and we felt for her after having to attend a table of 16 non English speaking tourists. Well done.

We had a beautiful romantic family dinner! There are so many places to eat, all along the entire beach but our driver took us straight to the restaurant he knew also had chicken etc so that our 3 children would be catered for too and it was just superb! Of cause it is expensive for Bali so you wouldn't eat... More

We have compared Jimbaran with Sanur, NusaDua and Kuta - Jimbaran is the best. Peace and quiet, fisherman's village with fresh seafood, nice waves, very beautiful
