Stunning 3 or 4-bedroom seafront villa, Candidasa
Candidasa, Bali, Indonesia
Additional Location Information
Because of Candidasa’s excellent position as the gateway to east Bali, there are many fascinating areas to visit if you’ve had enough of lounging on the beach! Listed are a few of the sights surrounding Candidasa that are worth a visit:
Besakih Temple – Bali’s Hindu Mother Temple
Besakih Temple is about an hour’s drive from the villa, through beautiful scenery. Besakih is the holiest and most important sacred site in Bali. The complex consists of 23 temples located one thousand metres up the slopes of the volcano Mount Agung, the tallest mountain in Bali. Ceremonies at Besakih, of which there are many, are a particularly spectacular sight.
Goa Lawah – The Bat Temple
Less than a 10-minute drive from Villa Cocoa Maya lies the small but important temple of Goa Lawah. The temple is built just in front of a cave opening in the coastal cliffs and is home to thousands of fruit bats. Legend has it that it is also home to a giant dragon-like snake called Basuki.
TirtaGangga Water Palace (Waters of the Ganges)
TirtaGangga is an easy 30-minute drive from Villa Cocoa Maya through beautiful rice paddies, with excellent views of Bali’s biggest volcano, Mount Agung. A real feel of old Bali still exists in this region and it is worth taking a trip back to the villa via the beauty of the Sideman region, famous for its handloom weaving.
The isolated Bali Aga people, who are the original Balinese, date back thousands of years. Surprisingly, their bloodline and culture has stayed largely intact over that time and is quite distinct from the rest of the Balinese, with the Bali Aga still speaking a dialect that is entirely their own. Because of their unique beliefs and practices they are of interest to tourists, anthropologists and historians. Tenganan is considered to be an excellent example of a Bali Aga village in Bali. Just a few kilometres away from Villa Cocoa Maya, it is possible here to see examples of the famous double and single ikat weaving; temples; the communal kitchen for preparing ceremonial feasts and the village meeting place.
Approximately an hour’s drive from Candidasa lies the small inland town of Ubud, beautifully situated among picturesque rice paddies. Despite the increasing numbers of tourists, Ubud, known as the cultural heart of Bali, still retains its charm. It is well known for its good shopping, excellent restaurants, fantastic spas, and many spiritual practices and varied courses.
The area around Nusa Penida (approximately 30 minutes by boat from the villa) – together with Komodo and Raj Empat – is considered by many to provide the most exciting, and diverse, diving anywhere in the world, with a diversity of fish rarely seen elsewhere. Combined with amazing shipwrecks and coral reefs up and down the eastern Bali coast, Villa Cocoa Maya provides irresistible diving opportunities.
If you prefer your marine exploration to be a bit more relaxed, and closer to the top of the ocean, look no further than snorkelling right off the beach at Villa Cocoa Maya! The coral reefs directly in front of the villa allow for the presence of beautiful and diverse fish in warm swimming water. If you prefer, the local fishermen can take you snorkelling further afield at the little islands just off our coastline, or at Blue Lagoon at Padang Bai, or further east at White Sand Beach. There is limited snorkelling gear at the villa which you are welcome to use during your stay. It is also possible to hire equipment in town. The staff will happily assist you with rates and arrangements for the fishing boats, or you can chat to the fishermen on the beach yourself.
While you have a beach right outside the villa you might feel like a change once in a while. The two best beaches in the area to visit, which make for a really nice day out, are Blue Lagoon near Padang Bai or White Sand Beach. Both are great swimming beaches, are about a 20-minute car trip or boat ride away, have snorkelling, excellent warungs (traditional restaurants) where you can eat grilled fish or seafood, and inexpensive sun beds to hire for the day. If you prefer, you can combine snorkelling off the boat with a lazy day at the beach.
There is beautiful rice field, hill and mountain trekking available around Tirta Gangga. It is also possible to trek up Mount Agung. The walk up the volcano of Mount Agung leaves in the early hours of the morning and takes about 4-5 hours to ascend and the same time to descend.
White Water Rafting
Various operators offer rafting on the Telagawaja River at Karangasem. The rafting portion of the river is about 12km long, takes two hours and has Grade 3 rapids.
Cycling is a beautiful way to see the Balinese landscape and there are tour operators who offer cycling for different expertise and fitness levels, and also tours that include children.
