If you are staying over on the eastern side of Bali then Amed is worth a visit. The snorkelling off the beach is pretty good with plenty of colourful fish and other marine life. If you are used to sandy beaches, swanky resorts and restaurants...More

Bali’s oceans are littered with plastics but here in the tiny fishing village of Amed it’s not quite so bad. Most of the cafes and restaurants now use bamboo straws and don’t automatically wrap everything in plastic bags. Brown paper recyclables are used extensively. So...More

I am traveling all my life. This place is horrible. Empty of people. Bad restaurants. The reef is 100% dead. If you are about snorkeling, do yourself a favor and don't go. For over 20 years the reef is dead. Beach sand is not good....More
