Candidasa Lotus Lagoon in Bali

Central Landmark in Candidasa

The Candidasa lotus lagoon is one of the main iconic attractions of Candidasa and it’s right along the main road and easily visible. The 1000sqm lagoon is filled with blooming pink and fuchsia lotuses with 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. From here, you can catch a glimpse of the rugged coastline of Candidasa with its calm waves, as well as Gili Biaha, one of the smaller islets off the East Bali coast. You may also find a spot under the shade of frangipani to feed the carp and tilapia.

Hillside Temple at Candidasa Lotus Lagoon 

Across the road, and on a higher elevation 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 may 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.
