Bali Candidasa Beach
Candidasa is a seaside town in east Bali. Its about 50 km from Denpasar town or 1.5 hour from Bali’s International Airport. Once a small fishing village, Candidasa gained popularity due to its remote location, tranquil coastline and breathtaking views of Indian Ocean. Its strategic location allows holiday makers to explore historical sites in the east of the island, including the Pura Besakih (Bali's Mother Temple), local villages to get a great experience of the real Balinese culture.
Candidasa now has a range of medium to luxury resorts. The beautiful beach has black sand along the coast and magnificent views of the ocean. For active travellers, there is a wide range of activities to include snorkelling, diving, biking and trekking. Restaurants and art shops selling souvenirs make this area as Bali’s famous holiday resort. This tour is designed with Amankila and Four Seasons and Sayan, the best luxury resorts in Bali.
TRAVEL UNTAMED ON THIS 9-DAY BALI HOLIDAY…
And, visit two destinations: Candidasa beach and Ubud.
This private luxury tour of Bali is designed to give travellers an introduction to Bali’s two important destinations: Candidasa beach in the southeast coast for relaxation and Ubud, the cultural heart of Bali. Candidasa is a laid back and very relaxing area of Bali with a wide range of accommodation options. Ubud in the interior provides walking options around rice terraces, mountains and artisan towns.
Begin in Bali, also known as the 'Island of the Gods' and the most famous island in Indonesia. Transfer south for three nights and stay at an exclusive resort perched on a cliff high above the ocean near Candidasa. Enjoy free time on the soft sand beaches, go surfing or take a colourful ‘jukung’ fishing boat, it is a perfect place to holiday.
During flexible private touring, visit revered temples, royal palaces, and Balinese villages known for their high-quality weavings, silk and traditional architecture. One evening, enjoy a sunset cruise on a yacht or relax by the resort's spectacular tiered infinity pool overlooking the ocean, and dine on superb Balinese cuisine.
Continue inland to Ubud, the cultural heart of Bali, where the spirit and culture of the island are most accessible. For more than a century, it has been the island's preeminent centre for fine arts, dance and music. Once a haven for scruffy backpackers, cosmic seekers, artists and bohemians; Ubud is now a hot spot for literati, glitterati, art collectors and connoisseurs.
Request for flexible touring of lush rice terraces, small villages, art and craft communities, ancient temples and palaces or try one of the many spas, yoga and meditation centres that are big news here, particularly after the bestselling Eat, Pray, Love.
