The last couple of years, it has become even busier still with grilled seafood restaurants going up at a rapid pace along the beach, attracting local families and tourists in drove.
Located on Bali’s west coast, Jimbaran offers a small-secluded beach area, where tranquility and perfect peace is the perfect antidote to a stressful world. The land gently slopes away from the beach revealing exclusive celebrity haunts hidden under a canopy of leafy tropical forest.
A popular spot for windsurfing and sailing small craft, which are available for rent, Jimbaran’s grey sand and calm waters are attracting more people but the beach still has a sleepy feeling.
