Jimbaran Beach Attractions

What to See in Jimbaran Beach

Jimbaran and The Bukit Peninsula were once very quiet areas with a small population and were considered to be underdeveloped and left out. However, since rumours about their beautiful beaches and nature-carved cliffs spread among surfers and hippies, Jimbaran and The Bukit became very popular among tourists looking for a private break, away from the city rush.

One of the most famous tourist destinations is the Uluwatu temple, a cliff-edge temple high above the sea. Another place you shouldn't miss is Jimbaran bay which is only a 15-minute drive from the airport. A former fish market, it has been transformed into a beachside open-air eatery with almost 40 restaurants along the shoreline.

If you are a water sports enthusiast, The Bukit has more excellent beaches than any other area in Bali, such as New Kuta beach (formerly known as Dreamland Beach), Padang-Padang, Bingin and Suluban or Uluwatu.

Bingin Beach

Located just one kilometre from Dreamland along the shore but 10 kilometres by road, Bingin is not recommended for novice surfers due to its reef bed. Like Dreamland, this beach is loaded with surfaris from around the world between May and October, but its pristine beach makes Bingin more appealing for non-water activities than Dreamland.
