Ameda diver’s haven
Amed Beach is located in the north east side of the Regency. It takes about two and a half to three hours to reach Amed from Ngurah Rai Airport. Amed primarily provides opportunities for scuba diving.
Amed Beach is a diver’s haven, one of the main destinations in East Bali. The coast is an hour’s drive up from the main Candidasa area, and another major dive site, Tulamben, is another 25km north.
Amed’s underwater beauty is in contrast to its overland terrain, which is arid and usually dry, and the coast features a combination of black volcanic sand and pebble beach.
The coastal villages are inhabited by traditional Balinese fishermen who set their sails and wooden jukung boats out to sea in the early mornings, creating a spectacle on the horizon at sunrise. Amed is also known for its traditional salt farming still practiced until today.
The stretch of coast name Amed in eastern Bali is a great place to get away from the crowds in the South. The pace of life in Amed is slow compared to most of Bali’s tourist hubs, however the area don’t lack options when it comes to activities.
