FS Jimbaran Bay overlooks the airport???!

I have learnt that all the villas overlook the airport, so I guess you watch planes flying in all day...??

I had booked my first 3 nights of honeymoon there, the villas look lovely, but think I will have to change.....since I am supposed to be on a remote tropical island away from it all !!!

Does anyone know bad is the proximity to the airport and can you see planes?

My only experience of Jimbaran Bay is at a seafood restaurant on the beach after dark. Absolutely no doubt about the aircraft, the sky seemed full of them - about every few minutes either taking off or landing.

I have no experience of dayliight hours flying, but remember this is an International Airport.

If you truly want an intrusion free beach side holiday, don't go there. Think about Sanur, or Legian or Seminyak, or even way north.

Good luck

Friends of mine are just back from Bali.

They stayed first at FS Sayan and then moved to FS Jimbaran where they only stayed one night (airport noise and ugly beach, they said)... so they ran back to the FS Sayan...

Thanks for the info.....

I'm going to the East coast (Amankila) to ensure tranquility, then on to FS Sayan..
