Amed is a 10 km stretch of coastal villages along Bali’s north-east coast, about 2 and a half hour drive from Denpasar airport.

The black, grey and brown sand beaches and crystal clear waters make Amed the perfect location for beach relaxation or underwater exploration. In the waters surrounding Amed you find some Bali’s best snorkeling and scuba diving sites. The most famous being the wreck of the 120 meter long World War II transporter USS Liberty located half an hour north of Amed in Tulamben.

For people who rather stay above water, a sailing or fishing trip off Ameds coast offers spectacular views of the coast with Mount Agung towering in the background or gives the opportunity to reel in some mackerels.

Mount Agung about 40 minutes from Amed offers excellent trekking opportunities and those with taste for adventure can try climbing all 3.142 meters of Bali’s highest mountain.

Located at the foot of Mount Agung Bali’s largest and most sacred Hindu temple, Besakih attracts tourist, not only from Amed, but from all over Bali. This complex of temples consists of at least 18 separate temples and numerous shrines.

At Tirta Gangga also known as The Water Palace, a 20 minute drive from Amed you can explore the beautiful lush gardens scattered with ponds and stone cut statues and swim in a pool originally designed for royalty.

Amed is perfect for discovering the Bali’s above and under water wonders without the hustle and bustle of the towns further South.
