Today was the day for adventure, As soon as I woke up I felt it in me, so I hastily grabbed clothes, grabbed some breakie and ran out of the hotel
After leaving the hotel resort and venturing further afield, we heard some rustling and bustling of people and music
We walked through the arch to the Jimbaran beach club and WOLA
There before us was a long sandy beach stretching for miles
Deck chairs, bean bags and tables were strewn across the beach as far as the eye could see
We opted to eat at the first place that we came across 'The Jimbaran Beach Club'
It's situated right on the beach, so we decided to kick back, relax and enjoy the view
The beach was relatively quiet, with a few people running in and out of the sea, and the occasional dog running past
We grabbed a quick snack as a pre supper meal, then after plenty of cocktails we nipped back to the hotel for a change of clothes and headed back down to see what the evening had to offer
This time was very different, in a matter of minutes the beach had filled up and there were hundreds of people
The sea was full of families, teenagers and elderly couples all screaming with joy, the restaurants that we had previously seen that were shack like, had opened completely up and there were hundreds of tables lined out across the beach
As we made our way down the beach we were offered numerous menus, sweetcorn and souvenirs
The air was full of smoke from the restaurants, and all you could smell was wafts of bbq aromas
Ah I can smell it now, thinking about it is making me ravenous
We continued to make our way up the beach, to where there was a quiet spot to have a childish 5 minutes
It kind of went like this
5 minutes past, well 20 but shhh and we decided to pull ourselves together and head back to the chaos
We grabbed a few snacks, dug in and sat down in a big comfy bean bag to watch the sun set and the people slowly leave
I would definitely recommend Jimbaran beach if you ever decide to head to that area in Bali
Jimbaran maybe a small fishing village, but behind the sleepy curtains there is a lot more on offer
Go on have a snoop around, I dare you.....
Until Next Time.....
