  1. Hi, is there any good resort/hotel near this beach ?
    Any comfortable public transportation from Denpasar ?

  2. Yes there are. For the public transportation you can use a blue bus that goes there everyday, but if you want to save some money and to make you easier to go around candidasa, you better rent a motor cycle or a car if you go there with your family... For the hotel, there are plenty of cheap hotel, such as Dewa Bharata Bungalow, Alam Asmara Dive resort, Candi Beach Cottage, etc...
