I absolutely adore Candi Dasa. It is a peaceful enclave that once was a tourist stronghold and is without a doubt the most underrated part of Bali. It slipped as a tourist destination after the terrorist bombings and unfortunately never really recovered. It’s a shame because Candi Dasa has so much to offer the traveller.
Candi Dasa has some excellent accommodation in all the price ranges and some of the best restaurants on the island, and it is ideally located for visiting some of the greatest attractions Bali has to offer. The great thing now of course is that the area is gradually recovering and no doubt, in the future, great deals will be available at al the hotels in the area. For an alternative to the tourist hype of Kuta escape to the peace of Candi Dasa.
