Jimbaran was a great and super "cheap" experience.
It only took us 20' by car from Kuta beach to reach Jimbaran fish market. The market itself is a standard indonesian fish market so do not expect any fancy booths but it offers a huge choice of all kinds of fish and sea food. However the coolest thing about Jimbaran fish market is that just close to it you have the possibility to get your stuff cooked or grilled for a very fair price of 20 000 Rp/Kg.
Rice will also be served with garlic or spicy sauce Sambal. We had 1Kg of fresh shrimps ready to eat within 10'. Next time we will also choose our "grill operator" for a better view on the beach and traditional fishing boats ...

Gorgeous beach and views. Not the golden sands of Australia but plenty to see ....like a Shetland pony on the beach!
We wanted to join the fun and buy fresh seafood from the market and have it cooked to order (minimal cost to have cooked) but the sight (& smell) of the many many rows of market stalls with seafood sitting in tubs of tepid water led us back along the beachfront to a restaurant where we selected some fresh fish which had been resting on ice. It was cooked perfectly in garlic and chilli & washed down of course with Bintang!
.
Get to thee Market early if you wish to purchase fresh fish!

We asked to be dropped off at this end of the beach to have a look at the market & decide if to eat there.
5 mins in the actually market was enough due to the strong smell. It was interesting to see the different types of fish & the hive of activity.
You can pick your own fish & have it bbq'd at one of the stalls & eat there.

We were recommended this place by two locals and lots of online rave reviews.
ZERO idea why anyone would recommend this place. Its a real local fish market and interesting to see, for about 3 mins. After that good luck finding a decent place to eat with raw fish in the heat. Wasn't my cup of tea.

Also be weary of the taxi's. we took a metered taxi from Seminyak to here for less than $100k rupiah and after we ate at an overly prices restaurant, we couldn't catch another meter taxi and even the security guard at the restaurant tried to force us nicely to get a taxi for 180k for a shorter ride to Kuta.
We haggled them down to 100k for the ride

I wouldn't bother wasting time here while i'm in Bali.

We went for a look early in the morning. Despite the rain we enjoyed having a look. Good for the kids to see how other countries run their markets. Worth a visit if your local to the area. However the beach is nice so worth a day trip if your planning a lazy day on the beach.

We have been several times to the markets and several of the restaurants along the beach.
I’m not sure which is the best way to go,it’s all pretty much the same and as good.
But,after all the visits I have never seen a fishing boat putting to sea at Jimbaran.
I have noticed though a lot of taped up polystyrene boxes being delivered by truck or scooter so I wonder where the seafood actually comes from.
Does anyone know?

Went to visit this market to get some fresh fish for dinner. I got extremely disappointed when while buying prawns the seller was placing some rotten ones in the bag, I then stop him and removed the bad ones, after that he DENIED ME TO BUY THE FRESH ONES! Went to another one, asked him some prawns pointing the ones I had in front and he just got others hidden beneath melted water.
While there's some fresh fish you can find at this place(not much though, most has been sitting there for days - I'm a chef and a fisherman - nothing is thrown away at the end of the day), TAKE CARE AS THEY TRY TO GIVE AWAY THE FISH THEY CAN'T SELL ANYMORE FIRST..
If you want to get some fresh ones go there around 7 am and BUY DIRECTLY FROM THE UNLOADING FISHING BOATS.

That is one of the horrible places ever.
If one would like to see how far environmental Pollution and the sea exploitation has come, go there.
And if you know a least a tiny bit about fresh fish you will find out that they don't sell fresh fisch.
That is rotten garbage.
Everyone who is eating that or at the nearby jimbaran beach restaurant risks his or her live.
The sea around Bali is fished empty.

THE PLACE for Ikan Bakar ( seafood grilled over coals.. ) Go into the fish market & buy your seafood... then take to one of the many grills, where they will clean & cook your fish for 20.000 Rp a kilo, NILAS WARUNG is THE BEST, she will even buy your seafood for you, if you ask & her Sambal Mata ( Chilli sauce accompaniment) is delicious 😛)
Directions- continue straight down the centre Rd into the market, you will see a community pavilion on your left, then a fruit stall, also on your left & it is the first grill on the left, on the corner, look for the red plastic tablecloths ....honestly, you can’t beat this one....
