Pristine Beauty in Jimbaran Beach

Jimbaran is a peaceful cove where fleets of fishing boats decorate the scene. It is located just south of Ngurah Rai International Airport, Indonesia. Jimbaran Beach is located at the narrow bottleneck of Bali Island, facing Jimbaran Bay. On the east side, the beach faces Benoa Harbor.

Pristine Beauty in Jimbaran Beach

Jimbaran Beach is a small, secluded area with tranquility to relax. The beach is one of the best beaches in Bali and a popular location for windsurfing and small boating. Jimbaran has 4 kilometers of stretches, gray sands and calm waters are attracting me. It is also a famous place where you can watch the beautiful sunset.

Best Time to Visit Jimbaran Beach

The weather in Bali always has two seasons: rainy and dry. You should spend time during the dry season, from May to October, to explore and experience activities on Jimbaran beach. For me, I spent at least a day here and enjoyed the tranquil atmosphere on one of the most beautiful beaches in Bali.

Beach Sports and Clubs 

Following my Bali trip, you can enjoy a sun-soaked day with a comfortable sun lounger. Its price for rent is about 50,000 IDR (~ 3.19 USD) - 100,000 IDR (~ 6.38 USD) per day. That's cool if you immerse in the warm, relish a delicious meal and drink a coconut.
