The Sea Shanty in Jimbaran Bali is a gorgeous 4 bedroom villa just a lazy stroll from Jimbaran’s famous seafood restaurants and white sand beach. The luxurious and homey villa has tons of space and facilities for families and there is also a ton to do in the area. We’re going to list down 10 Things to Do in Jimbaran that are right on your doorstep when you stay at The Sea Shanty!

#1 Paddle Board Across Jimbaran Bay

Jimbaran Bay can be as smooth as glass, which makes it the perfect place for a relaxing morning paddle. It’s great for paddle boarders of any skill level and even kids! It’s the most amazing family experience and a great way to spend time together. Get out early in the morning or late in the afternoon to avoid anyone getting sunburnt.

#2 Have a Fresh Seafood Feast

The Sea Shanty is a hop, skip and a jump from some of the most popular seafood restaurants in Jimbaran Bali. Head down before sunset to grab the best table and order early before the crowds roll in. Then sit back, let the kids paddle in the water and watch the famous Jimbaran sunset while you wait for your feast to arrive.

#3 Watch the Sun Set with a Cocktail at Sundara

Sundara is one of the hottest beach club/restaurant/bars on the island and for good reason. The fabulous location right on the beach (and a 2 minute walk from The Sea Shanty) is ideal for sundowners by the iconic 57-metre long infinity pool. This setting comes with a high price tag, but is so wonderfully indulgent, it’s an experience not to be missed.

#4 Wake Up Early and Walk on the Beach

The mornings in Jimbaran Bali are heaven for those who like to wake up early and clear the fog with a stroll or run in the fresh air. The bay is quiet and calm at this time of the morning and the traditional village is alive with people starting their day fishing, sweeping, and coming and going to the local market.

#5 Go on a Sunset Boat Cruise

For an experience to remember, head out on a sunset cruise in Jimbaran Bay. The light and calm at this time of day is truly a time to be savored, and looking back at Bali from the sea can really put things in perspective. The staff at The Sea Shanty will even arrange your cruise for you!
