Candidasa and Bali’s Beautiful East Coast

June 14, 2019 by Khiri Travel | Filed Under: ,

While Christmas and the New Year might still seem a long way off, if you’re planning a vacation to Bali for the festive season, then it’s worth thinking about booking now to beat the seasonal rush.

During the festive period, well-known destinations on Bali’s southern coast like Jimbaran, Seminyak, and Sanur can get very busy, so at Khiri Travel Indonesia we like to recommend some of the less-traveled places along Bali’s east coast to enjoy your break.

Candidasa is one of the best-known destinations in this part of Bali, and while it’s not quite so popular for its beaches, it has some of the island’s most beautiful seaside escapes, far from the crowded beaches of the south. From Candidasa town, the area stretches along Bali’s east coast through Manggis to the stunning volcanic landscape around Bugbug village. The main road is lined with varying accommodation from basic hotels to five-star resorts and there’s a host of good shops, bars, and restaurants in between.

Candidasa beach itself features a sequence of sandy shores and breakwaters, though for a more spectacular beach head to Pasir Putih, one of east Bali’s best-kept secrets. It’s an isolated 500-meter-long, beautiful, white-sand beach, fringed with coconut palms and dotted with the boats of village fishermen.

Candidasa also serves as a good base for exploring some of Bali’s important historical sites, such as the Ujung Water Palace, the Tirta Gangga royal water gardens and Goa Lawah temple. Goa Lawah is one of Bali’s key nine directional temples and serves as a guardian against dark spirits from the ocean. And beware of the cave there, as it is well known for its bats!
