Candi Dasa is a coastal town in East Bali. This is a laid back and very relaxing area of Bali with a wide range of accommodation options. Many visitors, especially Europeans, combine a stay in the hotspots of south Bali with a more relaxed break here. The black sand beaches are very narrow and often disappear altogether at high tide.
The stretch of coastline from Manggis through Candidasa town and east to Bugbug, is normally just referred to as Candidasa.
Candidasa is a good place to stay for your diving trips in Bali. Located in the center of the best dive sites of Bali and with renowned diving areas with good sites close offshore as well as around the nearby islands of Nusa Penida and Nusa Lembongan.
