Historic Site Tourist Spot
Travel back to a simpler time with a visit to Tenganan Aga Village, one of area's oldest communities. Home to the Bali Aga, the original inhabitants of Bali, this settlement features traditional architecture and preserves its age-old techniques for producing textiles. Surrounded by a wall, the village consists of simple homes with green hills as their backdrop. While no motorized vehicles can enter the settlement, you can walk in through one of three main gates, where a small donation grants you full access. The locals make the best guides, and at least a few of them always greet visitors at the gates and offer tours around their compact village. Put Tenganan Aga Village at the forefront of your travel plans using our Tenganan vacation planner.

Where to stay in Tenganan

There are few accommodation options within the small village of Tenganan, but you'll find plenty of places to stay in the nearby region of Candidesa and in East Bali in general. In Candidesa you'll find very good value budget-friendly hotels located a short walking distance from the beach, or even right on it. These also offer air-conditioning and on-site restaurants. If you're willing to pay a little bit more, there are more locations right on the beach with high-quality restaurants, swimming pools, and spas.
