Jimbaran Seafood Rijstaffel

Seafood at sunset

A seductive crescent of white sand and blue sea, Jimbaran Bay has a reputation for having some of the best seafood restaurants on the island and during this magical evening you will have the chance to dine in one of the best Beach Clubs in the bay. The delicious seafood rijstaffel (selection of dishes) and stunning beachside location provide the perfect end to a perfect day.

Jimbaran is just south of Kuta and was just a tiny fishing village with a daily market. That all changed in the 1980s and it is now home to several world class five star beach resorts and lots of high-end villas. This has resulted in monikers such as the "Beverly Hills of Bali" or "Millionaire's Row". The clusters of seafood restaurants on the beach are a major tourist draw in the evenings, as is the stunning sunset.
