  • Sweetcorns & steamed groundnuts

    Besides eating the seafood at Jimabran Beach, you can try them together with the local sweetcorns & steam groundnuts which you can buy from the vendor along the beach. They are tasty, cheap and go well with the seafood dinner.

  • Choosing your own seafood

    One of the interesting when dining in Jimbaran is that you get to choose your own choice of seafood, whether it is a fish, prawn, lobster etc. One of the best fish to try is the garoupa which is big with lots of meat. The seafood comes with vegetable as well. The fried squid (calamari) is a good side dish.

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    the southern bali area around Jimbaran and areas north of Ngurah Rai International Airport before the Discovery Plaza Mall are popular fishing areas for local fishermen and although you hardly see fishing boats in the morning, there are many local fishermen riding their local fishing boats usually at night to catch seafoods like fish, crustaceans, octopus and anything in between and they usually arrive at dawn to sell their catch to the markets or to local restaurants and hotels.

    if you happen to be jogging at the beach at sunrise, you would see the local fishermen returning with the day's catch.

Jimbaran What to Pack

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: It is good to take a sarong along with you on day trips. You never know when you will need to be properly dressed to visit a temple.

    Photo Equipment: Be sure to take along plenty of film or memory cards.

    Miscellaneous: Must haves are sunscreen, a flashlight, your prescription meds, and an extra pair your prescription glasses. I learned the last one from experience.
