Often billed as a tranquil alternative to the rowdier hotspots on Bali, Candidasa boasts seafront views and a great tourist infrastructure. In the 70s and 80s, astonishingly myopic developers mined the region's offshore coral reefs to produce cement for their beachfront properties, causing the now-unprotected beach to wash away. The few remaining slivers of black sand offer little for sunbathers and swimmers, so the mainstream tourist crowds keep away, but the restaurants and warungs remain. Sitting more or less in the middle of Bali's best dive spots, the town makes an ideal base for scuba and snorkeling expeditions, while nearby temples, palaces, and traditional villages provide plenty of attractions for a land-based Candisasa itinerary. Use our Indonesia sightseeing planner to arrange your visit to Candidasa and any other destinations in Indonesia that take your fancy.
