Hi everyone! Today I want to tell you about one of the beaches I like to hang out after uni. Even though it is much prettier than the crowded Kuta Beach or Double Six Beach it is still quite touristy especially in the evening. The reason for this is also the reason why I like to go there: fresh seafood.
There are lots of restaurants all along the shore and as soon as the sun sets the servers start putting tables and chairs outside.
So what my friends and I like to do after uni is go there, have lunch, lie in the sun, get into the water, grab some more food and so on. You can spend half of your day there just eating and sunbathing.
The best thing about the seafood in Jimbaran is that you can choose exactly the fresh fish or crab you want them to barbecue for you. My friends for example decided to have a lobster which is pretty cheap compared to having a lobster in Germany. Depending on the restaurant it costs about 500,000 IDR per kilo including side dishes like rice and vegetables. Of course it’s even cheaper if you go to one of the markets but then you’ll miss the beautiful sunset at the beach. It’s pretty romantic and stuff…
So even though the beach gets filled with loads of hungry Chinese tourists after sunset it’s a good place to go to after uni because it’s really close to the campus and you can spend the rest of your day there without getting hungry. 🙂
