Amed Beach in Bali

Everything You Need to Know About Amed Beach

Amed Beach in Bali is most likely already in your Bali travel itinerary if you're a keen diver. The island’s eastern shoreline boasts an underwater playground, and Amed Beach is among the favourite between two main sites (the other being Tulamben, 25km to the north). Amed Beach in Bali was once best known for its traditional salt farming. Soon after its beautiful underwater trove was unveiled, with an historical shipwreck adding to its natural features, Amed Beach became a favourite among divers, particularly Jemeluk Bay.

Ask for Amed Beach in Bali and you’d be directed to any strip along the coast that spans seven different seaside villages; Amed, Jemeluk, Bunutan, Lipah, Selang, Banyuning and Aas. All are fishing villages, hence the traditional jukung outriggers that line the coast.

What to Do in Amed Beach

So you’ll get the chance to experience both prominent dive sites in one convenient stay. To dive in, start out to sea in the early morning aboard traditional outriggers. At various points, including the Japanese shipwreck at Banyuning, the teeming marine life here includes various tropical fish, sea turtles, reef tip sharks, rays and vibrant coral gardens. The WWII Japanese patrol wreckage lies 15m from the shore. Amed Beach in Bali is also great for snorkelling as vast reefs span the bay. Traditional Balinese wooden boats called 'jukung' are also available for fishing charters. Free diving, an extreme sport, is a recent addition to the line-up of activities around Amed Beach in Bali. As you finish your day out in the underwater playgrounds, loosen up with a traditional Balinese massage, delivered by skilful local women.

What to See

Amed Beach in Bali offers the most dramatic sunrises not-to-be-missed as your outrigger sails out for the morning catch on the glistening waves. Also, one of the overland highlights you can find on your way back from Amed Beach is traditional salt farming in the area of Purwakerti. Filtered seawater is poured into the dugout halves of coconut tree trunks and set to dry under the sun. The farmers harvest the remaining bright white salt crystals, which you can purchase in packets as tokens of the trip. A two-and-a-half hour’s journey back to the south will offer you more viewpoints that are scenic and other attractions in the Karangasem and Klungkung regencies, such as the Tirta Gangga water gardens and the Goa Lawah Temple.
