Jimbaran Bay is probably the nicest bay in Bali, with calm blue waters and a beautiful beach. The bay is located just south of the airport and planes can be seen flying in and out, although oddly enough, I don't recall hearing any. There's not much in the way of facilities for tourists outside the few hotels here, except for the seafood restaurants that open up at night on the beach selling the most delicious BBQ'd seafood you could possible imagine. Even if you're not staying in Jimbaran Bay, make sure you head down here for dinner one night. It's fairly basic, usually plastic chairs and tables out in the sand, but the setting is perfect, especially at sunset and it's one of my Bali highlights. I recommend Sharkey's Restaurant, one of the most popular seafood restaurants in Bali.
Jimbaran Bay caters to the upper end of the tourist market and some of Bali's most luxurious resorts can be found here.
