East Bali is a large region with natural habitat ranging from lush forests and black sand beaches to barren gravel plains and an active volcano. The south coast is home to the popular seaside resort town of Candidasa and ferries to Lombok at Padang Bai.
Mighty Mount Agung, Bali’s highest volcano, looms large over the whole of East Bali and hosts Bali’s holiest of temples, Pura Besakih. In the far east, Amed is an increasingly popular and ever charming stretch of coast. East Bali provides as much for visitors as any of Bali’s regions. Some of East Bali photography routes are Candidasa and Bukit Cinta.
