Following the performance, continue to the seductive crescent of white sand and blue sea that is Jimbaran Bay. You will have the opportunity to dine on what is widely considered to be the best seafood on the island with a delicious rijstaffel, or selection of dishes, meal in an ambient beachside location. After dinner, continue to Nusa Dua for check-in to your selected hotel. (B,D)
