Market

Go early to the Jimbaran fish market (Kedonganan Fish Market), on the northeast corner of the main crossroads in the village, just across the street from Pura Ulun Siwi temple. The market opens at 4am and sells the highest quality and freshest seafood in all of south Bali. The market and adjacent beach at Jimbaran Bay are hives of morning activity. Colorful wooden boats with their high prows, decorated masts, and ropes covered in bright flags provide a bright burst of color. These elaborately dressed boats come from Java, Sulawesi, and Flores, and stop on every island to sell their catch. The waters nearest to Bali are often overfished, so most of the seafood comes from other nearby waters. Young boys rush to the boats to help pull them onto shore for the market stall owners to inspect the catch.
