You won't be sniffing the Jet A-1 nor will you be deafened by the roar of engines; the distance is pretty far between you on Jimbaran Bar and the jets at DPS. Still, the rumble of each plane barreling down the runway does reach this far, and, with a pair of travel binoculars or, even better, a telephoto camera lens, you'll still be able to jot down tail numbers.
The airlines we most frequently spotted: Garuda Indonesia, Thai Airways, Air Asia, Lion Air, Tiger Airways, Singapore Airlines, Cathay Pacific (a 747!) and a sprinkling of other Southeast Asia LCCs flying to this leisure mecca.
So, why do we love it so much? Well, most people come to eat these seafood warungs in the evening, so a sunny lunchtime gives you almost the whole plane to yourself. On top of being able to eat right on the beach, you can also walk right from your table into the surf, for some wading or pre-entree bodyboarding. Just do bring the SPF and sunglasses.
