On the east side of the airport is the delightful crescent-shaped Jimbaran Bay. Home to some really first class hotels, Jimbaran is known as the seafood capital of Indonesia with literally hundreds of seafood restaurants located right on the beach. As there are more restaurants than diners you should inspect the fish for freshness and the prices before ordering. The dishes are cooked over coconut husks and are both tasty and reasonable if you stay away from lobster. A wonderful place to watch the sunset and the procession of planes bringing a new influx of pink-faced visitors or returning tanned ones to their home countries. At the airport end are hundreds of fishing boats and an interesting fish market and it is all only 25 minutes from the bright lights of Kuta.
