Candidasa Attractions

What to See in Candidasa

Candidasa is a small coastal village in the lesser-explored East Bali region. The coastline ranges from stretches of black sand beaches to gravelly shores that all face the Lombok Strait and with a scenic backdrop of the island's mountainous highland. At one point in history, Candidasa used to be the only popular destination for day-tripping to East Bali – more of the region has been revealed over time.

Northwest from Candidasa is Amed that’s a top choice for tropical coastal escapes, as well as Tulamben for its dive sites. Generally, most of the eastern coast is an underwater playground, but overland, visitors may discover a multitude of colourful culture and traditions as well, with various significant landmarks and century-old temples.
