Jimbaran and the Bukit offer meeting and event planners
some of the most impressive venues and facilities on the
island, including a former limestone quarry that has been
the setting for many successful major functions; several
magnificent wedding venues; and recreational and team-building
venues such as Paintball Bali.
Jimbaran Beach is a quiet stretch of sand popular with
locals and tourists alike for its gentle tides, dramatic
sunsets and charming open-air seafood restaurants. Early
morning visitors to Jimbaran’s traditional fish
market can observe the island’s chefs, restaurant
owners and local housewives purchasing the night’s
catch straight off Jimbaran’s fleet of colourful
jukung fishing boats.
Overlooking Jimbaran is the craggy Bukit Peninsula -
home to the legendary surf breaks of Padang-Padang,
Uluwatu, Balangan and Bingin which boast massive breakers,
dwarfing those of Kuta and Legian. Considered among
the top ten surfing locales in the world, the Bukit
is also a prized destination for beachcombers, sunbathers
and seekers of solitude. A feature is the dramatic backdrop
of sheer cliffs overlooking the Indian Ocean, as well
as spectacular views over all of southern Bali.
Perched ceremoniously on the tip of the peninsula face
is the celebrated Luhur Uluwatu Temple – home
to powerful guardian spirits of the sea and mischievous
monkeys. One of the most important spiritual pilgrimages
in Bali, this magical temple, hewn from glistening limestone
is a must-visit architectural marvel.
Jimbaran and the Bukit, no longer the sole preserve
of fishermen and avid surfers, is now home to a vital
part of Bali’s meeting and incentive facilities.
