Longer in Amed or Candidasa?

Just deciding now over last 9 nights, split between Amed and Candi dasa..any opinion on the split... amed will be first...5/4 or 6/3..

We will have have already stayed in Sanur,5 nts.. Ubud 7, ..Munduck 2

We like mooching around the areas either walking, on a motorbike or in some cases maybe a driver. We can't swin so no diving or snorkling.

Candidasa is final stop as nearer to the airport, not interested in Kuta area.

If you can't swim, no diving and no snorkeling, why do you want to go to Amed. Amed isnt bad for a motorbike but Amed is for the things that you dont want to do.We enjoyed out stay in Candidasa that we just booked our flight again so we can get back there.

Despite not being swimmers and/or into snorkelling, I would still consider splitting your time 4 days Amed and the final 5 in Candidasa. I am sure you still go into the ocean and enjoy splashing about. It is a lovely area, well worth a visit and enjoying all that it has to offer, and then head down to Candidasa for your final 5 nights before heading home.

I'm not a diver. I swim & snorkel but not proficiently however I always enjoy any time spent in Amed. There are some beautiful views, friendly people & it's interesting to watch local life going on around you. Last trip I visited a family who lived by the beach & was highly entertained watching 11 day old piglets scampering around on the beach, then one after the other they came back home....time for a feed!
