Jimbaran Beach Activities
What to Do in Jimbaran Beach
Unlike the Jimbaran area, where there aren’t many options for water activities apart from swimming, the areas around the Bukit Peninsula feature the most perfect waves any surfer could ever dream of. For adrenaline seekers, paragliding on the 'Secret Point' or Bukit Timbis in the Bukit's southern point is a must do.
The Bukit is a natural challenge for natural dare devils, from surfing, body boarding, cross training, paragliding and more. Still, a romantic evening dinner on a sandy beach with a breathtaking panorama at one of Jimbaran Bay’s restaurants provides a blissful balance for your day.

Playing golf in paradise isn’t just a dream; the Bukit is home to one of the best golf courses in Bali, the New Kuta Golf Resort. This facility offers complete services for guests who desire a private stay, an 18-hole golf course, and the posh Klapa Lounge and Club.
The golf course also features a restaurant serving Indonesian and international variety of cuisine. Located at the ground floor, overlooking Hole 9 and Hole 18 and the putting green of New Kuta Golf, the spot offers a fresh alfresco dining atmosphere outdoors, as well as non-smoking and air-conditioned options.
Paint a Pot at Jenggala Keramik Bali
Paint a pot is an activity aimed at all family members. First, choose your preferred ceramics on the display table; it could be a plate, bowl, mug, cup or saucer. Then, you can start to sketch your favorite design, colours and glazes. To help you maximize your imagination into your own individual pot, Jenggala provides a choice of stencils and sponge shapes for you during the paint session.
Your creation will be fired in their kilns and ready for collection in two to four days. For those who wish to get advanced ceramics experience, Jenggala is now conducting an intensive course in ceramics including slabwork, pinch-and-coil techniques, drape mould and handthrowing.
If you want to whet your appetite for adventure, paragliding is surely one thing you shouldn't miss. This is a great adrenaline-pumping way to enjoy the sunset from 10,000 feet above sea level, and although you may need a lot of courage to start, once you try it you won’t have any regrets. Any worries you do have can be swiftly assuaged by the professional guides provided by the company.
Surfing in Jimbaran Beach
Surfing is Bali and vice versa. Noted as one of the best islands with the best waves, Bali swiftly became very popular among wave riders from all over the world from its first recognition by a group of Australian surfers around 1967. According to legend there were many surfers who came before them but it was the Australians who first introduced serious equipment to the island.
The Bukit Peninsula boasts over 20 top quality breaks on the southwest and southeast coasts of the island and around the Pecatu area. Some of these, like Padang Padang & Bingin, are world-class barreling reef-breaks.
