Set on a picturesque corner of Bali in the Indonesian archipelago, Jembrana offers the ideal beach hideaway. Boasting an untouched landscape, the region had remained isolated from external influence until as recently as the mid-nineteenth century when it was conquered by Dutch colonial forces. Today, Jembrana is known for its air of tranquility, far away from the maddening crowds of touristy destinations. Trek through the verdant jungles of West Bali National Park in northern Jembrana or walk through the vast rice paddies in the South. Take leisurely strolls along black sandy beaches, enjoy a bout of shopping at a quaint local boutique, or step inside an authentic restaurant for an intimate dining experience – this is the ideal Balinese paradise.
