Luxury Jimbaran Bay Holidays

The best beach and Balinese culture

Jimbaran Bay

Just south of Kuta on Bali's west coast sits Jimbaran Bay, where five-star resorts blend seamlessly with the easy-going atmosphere of the local community. It's famous for its fantastic beach – a postcard-come-to-life affair with an amazingly smooth, flat sweep of sand fringed with a score of grilled seafood restaurants - a tribute to the tiny fishing village of old. It's the done thing in Jimbaran Bay to select your pick of the day's catch and dine right on the sand, with the waves at your feet.

Slightly more inland, you'll find a maze of streets and alleyways, fresh produce stalls, and a bustling fish market to the north. Eighteenth-century Pura Ulun Siwi is one of the area's most significant temples, soaring out of the water in black stone. A real insight into Balinese religious culture, the temple hums with activity on holy days as incense is lit and traditional ceremonies are performed.

Flight Information

Flight time from the UK to Bali is around 16 hours.

Transfer Time

When to go

Situated close to the equator, Bali has a tropical climate with two distinctive dry and rainy seasons. The rainy seasons last from around November to February. April to June is a lovely time to visit Bali; it’s dry, temperatures hover around 27°C and there’s less humidity than in July and August.

Visa Information

Currently visas are not required for UK citizens travelling to Indonesia for 30 days or less.


Tipping isn’t required in Bali as a service charge will generally be added to your bill at restaurants and hotels, so there is no need to leave a tip as well. However, if you wanted to leave a tip for excellent service, aim for 10,000 to 20,000 rupiah for drivers, porters and wait staff (although try to hand it to them directly rather than leaving it on the table).

Introduction to languages

The official language of Bali is Indonesian. English is widely spoken too.
