Insider's Bali

Long before Bali made its mark on the global tourist map, the people of Jimbaran relied on the bountiful waters of the Indian Ocean and the island’s fertile, ash-enriched soil to earn their livelihoods. The home of artisanal fishermen and subsistence farmers, the village was a sleepy idyll that cast its spell over all who found their way there. By the dawn of the 1960s, Jimbaran’s reputation as the place to go for fresh-caught seafood and incomparable sunsets was firmly established, attracting luxury hotels and resorts to emerge along the coastline, amongst the banana groves and coconut palms that had stood there for centuries.

Today, Jimbaran is one of the most upmarket areas in southern Bali. It is quieter and more authentic than the nearby resort areas of Kuta and Seminyak, yet close enough to both for those who wish to explore their lively bars and restaurants. To discover part of the island that has changed very little over the years, head further south into the Nusa Dua peninsula. This is a land of ancient sea temples and hidden jungle villages, where lore and legend still imbue every aspect of daily life. Take part in a blessing ceremony at neighbouring Loloan Temple, or watch the sunset dance ritual at Uluwatu Temple to feel the magic for yourself.
