Candi Dasa

Candidasa is a sleepy seaside town that takes its name from an ancient temple complex and features different levels of accommodation and restaurants for travellers’ seeking a quiet holiday retreat. Despite the absence of a proper beachfront, there are plenty of water activities to enjoy including snorkelling to see species of coloured coral and exotic fish. Here local fishermen take to the ocean daily in brightly painted traditional boats known as jukung and visitors can negotiable very attractive charter fees for pleasure trips with views out to the neighbouring islands of Lombok and Nusa Penida.
