Never leave Bali without trying out their seafood at Jimbaran Bay. One must say. The view, the food, the live music, the scenery. Ofcourse, it is nothing fancy getting your feet stuck on the sand or getting wobbly on the chair floored with endless – endless sand but it is one heck of a dining experience.

It took about 30 to 40 minutes drive on average from Kuta to go to the Jimbaran beach. After walking from the parking lot, you will have to pass by a long line of tanks filled with live fish, clams, crabs, prawns, lobster, you name it! It definitely assure you that your food is fresh because most likely it will be. Jimbaran Bay is a fishing centre which is good if you are rather picky over your seafood.

There is two main restaurant clusters that dominate the beach, Kedongan Beach and Muaya Beach. Muaya Beach is among one of the famous tourist destination. There is a three-kilometre long of beach side cafe and restaurants which makes the best Jimbaran seafood. Although it is a simple cooking but it is definitely cooked according to Indonesia culinary traditions. About forty to fifty restaurants can be chosen from that could suit to your taste and price range.

Now, who you could bring to the beach?

  1. Your other half – Jimbaran Beach is one of Bali’s most romantic dining spot, overlooking the sea and you can even get the musician to play that favourite song of yours! Get that flowy dress on and that cool polo shirt you been keeping. Enjoy the lavish seafood only Jimbaran Beach can offer. It is time to splurge your other half with that lobster perhaps? Or probably with the most juicy Udang galah (large prawn grilled over fire).
  2. Your friends – What other better way than to enjoy your dinner with your friends over sunset, reminiscing good old times? Share your ikan bakar (Barbeque fish), with that delicious sambal and create memories with your friends. This picture worthy place can make your time more memorable!
  3. Your family – Be comfortable and get your hands into that chilli crabs you been wanting to indulge in. Bond over the amazing view and have your kids build sandcastle along the shore of the beach. Treat them with some ice-cream over the ice-cream stall or buy them some balloons? Whats great is that you get a good value of money for various dishes with experience of a lifetime! I tell you, it is more cheaper than the place I live in.
