This sleepy town still remains untouched by the effects of tourism. With a variety of hotels and restaurants to choose from, Amed is the perfect getaway. Snorkel anywhere along the coast or sit in a restaurant and watch the dolphins playing in the waves. Look for the dive shops here if you like to dive near the Japanese shipwreck or in neighboring Tulamben. Being some of the friendliest people in Bali, the locals will give you information or just chat with you, without the intention of selling you something.
The coral was so alive and beautiful. For the best diving stay away from where the fisherman beach their boats, that is where the coral is dead. But you only have to travel a couple of meters to find the most vivid colors. I was amazed out how close the coral was to the shore when we were diving just east of Amed. The quiet lifestyle of the locals made this the best place to spend a week. Well worth the 2-3 hour drive from the airport to get away from all the tourist.
we found amed so peaceful and thre are numbers good small hotel but there are two our choice to stay and we do not know which one the best because they are both great , are Bluemoon villa and anda resort.
not mentioning the view and the athmosphere, the food and the accomodation all good and good value.
with new road from sanur amed seems closer, well we are will be there again this coming end jun 2007.
The water was so hot snorkling from the beach, that I suppose this is the reason the coral was mostly a brown/grey color. Maybe it was better further out.
We bailed out and headed to Permuteran Bay, and Deer Island. WOW ! The coral was alive and beautiful .
Had been recommended to go to Amed by some friends who had visited the area. What a great spot. Friendly locals, without any of the hastles of Kuta or some of the other areas of Bali. Some brilliant snorkelling, didn't dive myself but am told the diving is first class too. For a relaxing, easy place to stay can recommend Amed. Stayed at a new hotel Anda Amed Resort, wonderful. Great food, spectacular views and friendly helpful staff. Definitly a place to visit in Bali
