Candidasa is located about 1.5 hours by car north of the Balinese airport Denpasar. The village on the east coast of Bali is the ideal starting point for excursions under water and also on the island. The Puri Bagus Hotel is an institution in Candidasa. The top-quality resort which is located directly on the beach is home to ORCA Dive Club Candidasa. The Tepekong Island lava rock with its spectacular dive sites is located directly in front of the hotel.

ORCA Dive Club

The ORCA Dive Club is relatively big for Indonesian conditions. Guests will find 20 complete equipment sets. There are a total of 76 aluminium bottles in three different sizes. 15 litres for great consumption, 12 litres as standard tanks and 8 litres for little divers. They are all - not a given in Indonesia - fitted with DIN connections. There are also a sufficient number of INT-adapters. A strong Bauer-plant (320 l/min) is doing its job in the compressor room. Nitrox is also on offer.



Diving boat and diving destinations

Traditional Balinesian outriggers are available for dives at Tepekong. It's less than a five minute trip to reach the dive sites at the striking rock which reaches sixty metres out of the sea. Furthermore, there are also minibus rides on offer to visit the "Liberty" wreck in Tulamben and the steep reef in Amed. From Padang Bay, speedboats take you to Nusa Penida or Nusa Lembogan with a chance to see Ocean sunfish in the summer months.
