10 things to do in Jimbaran – re-energize yourself

accommodates both low budget and high-end meal experiences. With its sugary white beach, Jimbaran beach is known for safe swimming.

1

Pick your seafood

Pick your seafood

Most hotels such as Le Meiridien Bali Jimbaran offer an authentic range of seafood. Seafood will be a little more expensive, when it is a fresh catch off the sea. However there are large fish swimming in the restaurant tanks for your choice. It could be any kind you like: mahi mahi, skip jack tuna, mackerel, live crab or Asian lobster. Out of the lot, lobsters claim the highest price, 40,000 rupiah per 100 grams. Crabs rank the second with 30,000 rupiah per 100 grams. You can also opt for a customized cooking, though it will be a little more expensive. If you are short of cash, the best option is to order what is available in the menu. That is much cheaper, but not as brand new as tank fish freshly cooked.
