Jimbaran is a fishing village on the island Bali. Jimbaran was, next to Kuta, one of the locations of the terrorist attack of 1 October 2005.
The place is located in the Jimbaran Bay, on the southwestern coast of the island, at the Indian Ocean and south of the international airport Ngurah Rai Denpasar.
In addition to international hotel chains such as Four Seasons or InterContinental, small holiday resorts and hostels for tourists, mainly from Indonesia, Europe or Japan, offer accommodations for holidays on the Hindoo-shaped holiday island.
Seafood restaurants on the beach grill fresh seafood every evening.
