The name of Candidasa beach comes from the temple having the same name and devoted to God Shiva. The temple was built in the 12 century. This is a picturesque bay with white sand and magnificent water framed with a mountain ridge. Everything around is specked with palm groves and rice terraces, this is an amazingly heavenly place of a North-Eastern part of Bali.

Candidasa will be the best choice for a quiet holiday for couples or fans of extreme impressions granted by the ocean. The lagoon style beach is pleasant and comfortable for swimming, you will never feel the influence of tides as it normally happens on other beaches of Bali. Along the strand there are some cafes and restaurants with beach chairs and umbrellas on the shore. Many years ago Candidasa was discovered and chosen by divers. Activity holiday lovers are attracted by bays inhabited by bright fishes and coral gardens. The most popular scuba diving spot in Bali is in the area where an American transport ship was submerged by Japanese military during the World War II. For paragliding lovers there is a chance to enjoy the beauty of the island from bird’s view.

Here, in the east of the island life is quieter than on the other side. And it should really be so as according to local folk-beliefs it helps to harmonize the sources of good and evil and to live in harmony with gods of nature.

A number of secluded comfortable villas provide the most serene holiday in Bali to the guests of the island.
