The coastal road runs from Muaya Beach in Jimbaran through to Cafe 9 by Jalan Pemelisan Agung, the road will be resurfaced and widened.

The Chairman of the Jimbaran Village Community Empowerment Institute (LPM), Made Dharmayasa, told reporters that Jimbaran residents have expressed their joy at the start of this long-awaited project.

He revealed that the project progress is currently around 40% complete and it is on target.

Dharmayasa said, “I am very grateful to see this project become a reality. We hope that this project will not only run smoothly but also have a positive impact on the people of Jimbaran.“ 

He also expressed his hopes regarding the West Ring Road access development plan in the future. He said that currently socialization is being carried out within the community regarding the Jimbaran West Ring Road Amdal.

There are hopes that construction can begin in 2024. These two new road developments in Jimbaran combined will change how tourists get in and out of the rouser for the better.

Increased access to Jimbaran Beach will certainly help boost the resort’s popularity. With destinations like Uluwatu and Canggu booming in popularity resorts like Jimbaran are often overlooked.

Yet for travelers looking for a classic beach vacation, with plenty of access to good food and day trips then Jimbaran is an excellent choice.

The coastal village is still a fishing village by trade, even though tourism businesses now line the shoreline.

Jimbaran is famous for its seafood restaurants that sit along the sand and diners are treated to incredible sunsets every night of the year.

Bali’s traffic issues are felt by almost all tourists who visit the island, in one way or another.

It is evident that huge changes must be made to road infrastructure on the island if the vacation destination will be able to keep up with the soaring demand by visitors.

Ease of transportation is one of the big factors up for consideration when planning a trip. 

It is not only Jimbaran Beach that is frequently impacted by traffic jams but almost all of Bali’s biggest resorts.

Leaders have committed to tackling the issue across the board and there are some huge road renovation projects lined up for 2024. 


In Kuta and Legian work on Jalan Dewi Sri is almost complete. The busy road has been resurfaced, which will make driving along the route much safer and quicker.

The construction teams in Legian have also rebuilt the pavement, making it safer for pedestrians to walk in the area.

The lack of pavements and sidewalks in Bali is something that is noted by many tourists.

This makes walking in resort areas pretty dangerous at times, especially when walking with children or pushchairs. In Nusa Dua officials have solved two problems in one this week.

Work to resolve coastal erosion on Nusa Dua Beach has resulted in upgrades on and around the paved beach path.


Sand from nearby Mertasari Beach was transported to Nusa Dua to help refill the beach, and sand was also redeposited from across Nusa Dua Beach to help maintain the color of the sand.

Maintenance teams have also outlined steps that will be taken in the coming months and years to ensure that coastal erosion in the area does not get as bad again. 


Leaders in Bali are keen to ensure that the island remains a world-class tourism destination. For this to be achieved, infrastructure has to be leveled up, but this cannot happen overnight.

Huge projects like the Bali Railway Network and the Gilimanuk-Medewi Toll Road will make a huge difference to traffic on the island but will not be completed in the next 12 months.

Jimbaran beach road: Sounds like the target is to bring noise, pollution and parking chaos ala Kuta beach also to Jimbaran beach. Is that progress?

It would be better to provide parking areas inland and instead make a walking promenade along the beach wide enough to allow for bikes.

The proposed construction of this road along the beach poses a significant threat to Jimbaran beach and could lead to a disaster if the project proceeds. Despite not receiving approval from the environmental government bodies due to its proven detrimental impact on the environment, some local leaders are still pushing for its implementation, driven by personal interests and potential financial gain.
