Candidasa is especially known for its delicious seafood and traditional Balinese dishes that you can order at the many restaurants. Along the beach of Candidasa there are many restaurants where you can enjoy these dishes with a view of the sea.

Amlapura is the largest city of east Bali and is located 4km from the villas, it was originally called Karangasem, but after the volcano eruption in 1963 the city wanted to start again with a clean state, a new name would bring more luck. Visiting the large spice market is very much worth it, it is open every morning up until around 11am. Amlapura was well known for its palaces and royal gardens, but they were largely destroyed by the volcano. Fortunately, the damage could be fixed and the palace Puri Agung, where the king of Karangasem once settled, has once again become accessible to the public. Also in the center of this city you will find an immensely large Hardy's supermarket (similar to Makro) with a wide variety of food and non-food products.
