Jimbaran is a village in south Bali with many luxury resorts and villas.
Jimbaran is located just south of the airport and Kuta. Back then, it was just a tiny fishing village with a daily market.
Since the 1980s, Jimbaran has evolved into several world-class 5-star beach resorts and some more moderate mid-market hotels.
Although there are few budget accommodations, there are also many high-end villas in this area, particularly on the ridges above Jimbaran Bay.
This has led to names such as “Beverly Hills of Bali” or “Millionaire’s Row”.
White sand beaches line the bay, which is a very safe place to swim.
A major tourist draws in the evenings is the trio of grilled seafood restaurants on the beach, as well as the truly gorgeous sunsets.
A Norwegian university is also located in Jimbaran: Gateway College, with around 500 students studying athletics, philosophy, culture, economics, and journalism.
This school is located in Kedonganan, near Sari Segara Resort and on Jl, Bantas Kau, where it also has a small cafe.
It is close to Kuta, Seminyak, and the cultural highlights of Central Bali but it doesn’t have a lot of nightlife.
