Candidasa - East Bali hotels
Running between Manggis and Bugbug, Bali is a stretch of beach known as Candidasa. This small beach town offers a welcome respite from some of the busier places in Bali, although its beaches are not as well known as some of their counterparts. The area is home to the Bali Aga people, whose villages have not changed much since their origins in the pre-Majapahit era. The Mekare kare blood sacrifice ritual of the Bali Aga has turned into a grisly tourist attraction in Candidasa. The laid-back atmosphere and plentiful temples offer visitors a great venue for indulging in ancient culture.
- Climb to the top of Mount Agung, a volcano that towers more than three thousand metres above sea level and look east for dramatic views of Lombok and Mount Rinjani.
- Dive in the reefs off the island of Nusa Penida, one of Candidasa’s renowned diving spots, where Bali’s diverse marine ecosystem is on full display.
- See the cave that guards Bali from the dark spirits of the ocean on a visit to Goa Lawah, a temple cave.
A direct trip from the Bali Airport will have passengers in Candidasa in about ninety minutes so many visitors choose to arrive by hired car or taxi. The town is also well serviced by a number of bus lines from cities all over Bali. For adventurous travellers who want to get around like the locals regular bemos, which are small three-wheeled trucks, leave from Denpasar and go up and down the coast,. The best way to explore the lush natural majesty of Candidasa is by hired motorbike, which will allows you to see parts of the area unavailable to buses and cars.
