Candidasa Nightlife

What to Do at Night in Candidasa

There are not as many clubs or bars in Candidasa compared to other main tourist crowds of the southern parts of the island. This small village in eastern Bali is more of the peaceful retreat for travellers searching for a magnificent ocean view with hills and rice fields creating a graceful green backdrop.

However, there are several spots that serve those looking for nightlife nuance, but in a laid-back style. On the cultural side, you can also enjoy scheduled traditional Balinese dance performances at several venues.
