Peaceful beach area
Apr. 2021
Amed beach is located on the eastern side of Bali island. It will take around 3 hours from the Bali airport.
I've been to many beach towns in my travels and I need to say, Amed is absolutely one of my favorites! The beach itself is volcanic with dark sand.
The main attraction of Amed beach lies in the natural underwater spectacle with fantastic coral reefs and exquisite fish. Therefore, it makes Amed Beach Karangasem a famous place for freediving, snorkeling, and scuba diving in Bali; so, if you love underwater adventure, Amed Karangasem is one area to visit in Bali.

Besides a long stretch of black sand beach, there is also a village nearby the beach called Amed. Amed village is a small fishing village on the northeast side of Bali Island, which located close by Tulamben Karangasem.

Where can I snorkel in Amed? Below are the best snorkeling spots along the Amed coast.
Kembali Beach Bungalows coastline.
Teluk Jemeluk.
Lipah beach.
Selang beach.
Over all, Amed beach and the area is a lovely place to visit, to do snorkling, diving or just driving around.
Please keep clean the beach and put your trash in the right place. Enjoy!

Overbuilding, trash and construction debris everywhere.
Feb. 2020
Amed still has a fishing village feel but things are not well here.

1) Trash Everywhere. I know that this is a problem around most of Bali, but it is pervasive here in Amed and a problem that locals seem to be ignoring at their own front doors. There are large trash piles along the roads, on the beaches and in the water. The piles accumulate along the waterways that feed the local businesses. In the heat of the day, the smell of decay starts to become apparent. The Jemeluk dive site is overrun with floating plastic, candy wrappers and more.

2) Over Construction. The town is already filled to the brim with dive shops, hotels and transport services. Yet, there is massive construction going on at every level (huge hotels and small businesses) which creates incessant noise and piles of debris that spill into the middle of the road and into the creeks. Access to the beach is also affected by the construction.

3) Local Resentment. There seemed to be not the same level of friendliness here as the rest of Bali. People were still polite and smiled, but the friendliness was missing or not genuine. At the Abyss Dive Center someone actually mocked me for asking a question. Local shop owners refused to make change to help other shops which I did not experience anywhere else in Bali.

Beautiful village life
Jan. 2020 • Solo
After staying in Cangu for many years I decided to follow the road for another hour or so climbing hillside village life until Amed
Delighted with clean quiet beachside life
Well worth the escape of busy life in the city
Great bungalow prices all dotted along the coral strewn beach Mt Agung is your back drop

Loved everything about Amed
Jan. 2020
I have been to a lot of beach towns in my travels and I have to say, Amed is absolutely one of my favourites!

The beach itself is volcanic black sand so if you are looking for the fine powder you won't find it here. The beach is very clean and water warm.

What you will find here is an incredible town full of amazing people. The vibe is very relaxed. You can sit and watch the seaside life of the Balinese in action. The main road is filled with amazing little warungs which are incredibly well priced. We didn't find this town overly touristy and it is NOTHING like the craziness of south Bali.

We absolutely loved our stay in Amed. Our only regret is that we discovered it at the end of our three month trip to Bali so only stayed 5 nights. We will definitely be back for an extended stay.

Good snorkeling
Aug. 2019 • Family
Amed beach is good if you want to snorkel, you can already find nice fish and coral close to the shore, I even saw a small ray. The beach itself is black sand. When I was there it was a bit crowded on the beach and not easy to find a spot in shadows as there are transats everywhere, but the price of a transat was acceptable.

A lovely village beach, if not a little spoiled by tourism.
Aug. 2019
I love this beach for the sheer pleasure of seeing Balinese seaside village life. The downside is the accumulated rubbish which seems to be everywhere here. The snorkelling is close to the beach and the cafe life is abundant if not sleepy.

Calm black sand beach
Aug. 2019 • Couples
Beautiful black sand beach with a stunning view of Mount Agung. Calm and desertic place, ideal beach if you're looking for some peace in Amed. It is also possible to do snorkeling and arrange some fishing/diving trips with the locals from there.

Snorkeling right off the beach
Jul. 2019 • Family
We stayed in Amed for 5 nights and snorkelled right off the beach. The west end of the beach has a long coral garden with plenty of colourful fish. While the beach is stony getting in and out was not too difficult. We were able to sit in some shade between snorkels. There are cafes along the beach for drinks and food if needed.
