Amed and Tulamben are alternative destinations of Kuta beaches in East Bali. Amed is a resort town that harks back to the early days in Kuta.

Candi Dasa is the entryway to east Bali. The Bali beach here has been mostly washed away due to the heavy coral picking that used to provide a living for locals. This has now been stopped and tidal walls have been erected in an effort to restore the beach. Gradually the coral is returning, and Candi Dasa is just beginning as a popular tourist destination. Located 85 km north-east of the airport, on the east coast, Candidasa offers a good base for exploring east Bali. A low key, laid back place close to cultural treasures like Pura Besakih (Bali's Mother Temple) and Tenganan Village - a unique village belonging to the original surviving Bali Aga aboriginal communities. It has lots of rustic charm.

Jimbaran is directly south of the airport, on the way from Denpasar towards Nusa Dua. The village of Jimbaran is the narrow neck of the island of Bali, and thus it has two remarkably different beaches. On the west, Jimbaran Beach faces the Jimbaran Bay, recently lined by new luxurious resorts. On the east, the beach faces the body of water sheltered by Benoa Harbor.
