Candidasa Lotus Lagoon in Bali

Central Landmark in Candidasa

The Candidasa Lotus Lagoon is one of the more iconic attractions of Candidasa and is easy to reach, being right along the main road and easily visible. The 1,000-sq-m lagoon is filled with blooming pink and purple lotuses and contains a small garden island with statues as its centrepiece. It’s open to the public and is a regular stop-off for tours to East Bali. It’s a peaceful place to find a spot under the shade of frangipani to feed the carp and tilapia.

Hillside temple at Candidasa Lotus Lagoon 

Across the road from the Candidasa Lotus Lagoon is the 12th-century Pura Candidasa temple, featuring twin shrines under a densely-forested hillside. The temple is dedicated to the Hindu god Shiva and the goddess of fertility, Hariti. You can climb halfway up the staircase for better views across the lagoon, including wider seascapes with Nusa Penida island in the distance. You can also expect crowds of pilgrims to be attending the temple during its festive and lively piodalan temple anniversaries, which occur every 210 days on an Anggara Kasih Tuesday of the traditional Balinese Pawukon calendar.
