5 Best Things to Do in Amed

What is Amed Most Famous For?

Some of the best things to do in Amed can be found within its underwater galleries. These snorkelling and diving sites have lifelike sculptures of Balinese characters like dancers and mythical creatures, which are deliberately submerged into sea beds to help with coral growth.

Freediving is popular among those looking to explore the ocean without being restricted by heavy snorkel and dive gear – many dive centres along Amed Beach offer courses for beginners. If you want to stay dry in Amed, a hike to the Jemeluk viewpoint often results in dramatic seascapes, with views of Mount Agung in the horizon.

    The Jemeluk Bay underwater gallery is one of the most popular diving sites in Bali. Overseen by The Marine Foundation, it has lifelike sculptures by Indonesian artists like Wayan Winten and Eddi Prabandono. Check out Balinese-style statues like beautiful apsara (Hindu water nymphs), mermaids, treasure chests, and a Balinese barong. You’ll also spot a working mailbox at the Jemeluk Bay underwater gallery.

    The Japanese shipwreck is a popular diving site near Lipah Beach. The 20-metre-long wreck of a Japanese freighter around 6 to 10 metres deep, with fairly good visibility throughout the year. It’s quite a small wreck compared to other wrecked ships in Bali, but you’ll see plenty of colourful corals and gorgonians with sightings of nudibranchs and reef fish. The Japanese shipwreck attracts macro photographers looking to catch sight of the elusive pygmy seahorses. Read More...

    Jemeluk Viewpoint

    The Jemeluk Viewpoint overlooks Amed’s curving bay, with fishing outriggers parked in rows along the coast, waters off the shore, and the outlines of Mount Agung serving as a dramatic backdrop. The eastern headland offers a fantastic scenic vantage point at sunrise, though it’s also popular for catching the sun setting over Bali’s highest peak. The Jemeluk Viewpoint has small sheltered areas and gazebos, as well as food vendors selling snacks and cold drinks in the evenings. It’s about 300 metres east of Pantai Jemuluk Beach.
