You probably wouldn't expect to find a chocolate factory on a remote beach in Bali, but that's exactly what Charlie's Chocolate Factory in Karangasem is. Located just 15 minutes north of Candidasa in the small village of Jasri, several wacky bamboo structures lie nestled below swaying coconut trees.
The factory was built by a US expat named what else but, Charlie. Cacoa beans grown locally on the island are cold pressed to make healthy, raw, dark chocolate. With a cacoa content of 85%, the chocolate is also rich in magnesium and full of anti-oxidants.
Chocolate tasting is available in one of the unassuming buildings and there's also a small soap studio that sells gorgeous handmade soaps.
There isn't a huge variety of chocolate for sale - Narkabo Chocolate Nibbles is an organic dark chocolate available with 69% or 85% cacoa, while Bali Krunch is a bar of sweet, crunchy rice coated in dark chocolate. Before you leave Charlie's, don't miss out on a ride on the awesome swing out front, an unforgettable experience in itself. Website: Charlie's Chocolate Factory
