Of all the places in Bali that we love, the Southwest region is by FAR our favorite. Uluwatu and Jimbaran are both excellent locations for white sand beaches, cliff top views, surfing, and relaxing. They’re also less tourist than neighboring Seminyak and Kuta, which is a nice change if you’re looking for more chill than party.

We came to Jimbaran just after leaving our crazy stressful jobs and found the most perfect slice of Balinese Heaven here, and I’m so excited to share it with you! Whether you’re planning an affordable romantic getaway with your friend, lover or spouse, Jimbaran does not disappoint. It also makes the PERFECT honeymoon spot in all of Bali because it still has the rustic roots, as opposed to the 5 star resorts in Sanur.

How To Get Around Bali:

Driver: There’s no easy way around Bali, unless you hire a driver. If you’re looking for a reliable, affordable, safe driver, Mr. Agus Yudi is your man! He’s by far the BEST driver we’ve had in the many months we’ve spent exploring Bali and his english is GREAT! Contact information on photo below:

Mr Agus Yudi Is The BEST Driver In Bali!

Scooter: The most popular mode of transportation in  all of Bali. You can rent one for $5-7USD per day. NOTE: PLEASE be careful on these scooters as I’ve personally met people who’s brakes have gone out and crashed, breaking countless bones and ending up in the hospital. Do get travel insurance prior to coming (as you should for any trip).

If you’re in need of storing your surfboards or suitcases for a day, week, month, etc., then Bali Board Storage in Kuta (near Discovery Mall) is the BEST place around. We stored 2 suitcases and 2 duffel bags for the day for around $10USD. The owner is super friendly and they are really safe and reliable.

A GREAT Place To Get In A Good Workout!

If you’re looking for a gym in Jimbaran, then Body Star Fitness is your place. Although the equipment is a bit dated and the floor looks a bit frightening, it’s hot inside and there aren’t any treadmills, the building is really large, the staff is friendly and there are plenty of weights to get in a great workout. $25,000IDR/visit ($2USD).


The rainy season in Bali is October-April. You can still go (we did) and have a great time, just expect daily showers and some cloudy skies.

Be sure to get duty free alcohol when you land at the airport, it’ll save you a lot of money!
