Taking a half day or a full day excursion on holiday is always a wonderful
introduction into a new destination, learn about its history and culture
or enjoy its natural surroundings. A day trip around Bali is an experience
not to be forgotten, where one begins to understand what makes Bali such
an unforgettable destination. Take a seat in a coach offered by travel
agents, hire your own car or bike through the country side. There is much
to see and experience in Bali while staying at The Leaf Jimbaran.
Scrumptious Fresh Seafood any style at Jimbaran Beach
For anyone that has visited the world famous island of Bali, or even those
who haven’t, many of you have likely heard of Jimbaran Beach, one of the
favorite spots amongst the multitude of interesting places scattered
across the island. Jimbaran beach offers a host of mouth-watering treats
and could very well be the center of culinary tourism on the southern
coast of Bali. Jimbaran beach is located in the village of Jimbaran within
walking distance from the fishing village, Kedonganan.
Located so close to the center of fresh fish and sea food, the coast
stretching between Jimbaran and Kedonganan has been established as a hub
of restaurants, food stalls and seaside cafés serving a range of
fantastically fresh and perfectly prepared seafood dishes, to a backdrop
of sloping white sands and gentle rolling waves, and in the distance
planes taking off and landing at Bali’s international airport, creating
the perfect setting for a romantic evening meal.
Rows of tables and chairs are arranged along the seaside, where visitors
can sit, eat and relax to the glow of the setting sun and candle light.
The range of dishes served is quite diverse in choice of species, size,
style of cooking and of course, taste. Fish, squid, lobster, crab,
scallops and shrimp either baked, boiled, fried, sautéed, or steamed are
just some of the options on the menu, and many restaurants offer a blend
of Balinese and international flavors. Not a big fan of seafood? Not to
fear. You can still enjoy the breezy beach atmosphere, and have a taste of
the non-seafood dishes offered by many of the waterfront eateries.
Needless to say, Jimbaran beach is most popular, and extremely crowded in
the evenings, where the dinner hour coincides with the Sun’s slow and
spectacular journey westward – a bonus that can be enjoyed for free. Live
music performances along the shore also add to the ambience of the sea
breeze, fresh food and setting sun.
Aside from the range of restaurants and cafes along the beach, a variety
of other facilities are also available. Done eating? Or at the beach
before sunset? Hire a boat for a cruise around Jimbaran. Want to try more
adventurous activities? Surfing and parasailing equipment are available
for rent. Take a stroll down the beach, or just lounge in the sand.
Whatever you need, there’s something for everyone. The Leaf Jimbaran has
daily regular shuttles to and from Jimbaran Beach,contact our concierge
for booking a trip.
