accomodation and beaches at Amed

We are planing our first trip to Bali and like the sound of Amed.

I am not a confident swimmer but would like to do some snorking and my partner would like to do a dive course.

What would be the best place to stay with the safest areas to snorkle?

Lipah beach is very calm, you can just walk into the water to snorkel and for diving you may want to go to Tulamben or Jemeluk.

Have a look at this site bali-diving-resort.com/bali_dive_sites_amed.…

and our expert on Amed is Ursie, who will be able to assist better.

Hi

We have just had 3 nights at Hidden Paradise and loved it, Small resort with beautifully kept gardens, small pool and right on the beach at Lipah. Just walk along the beach front about 5 min and you can walk in and snorkle. We wish we had stayed longer.

What they said. We love Bayu Cottages but the others look nice too. There is also Le Jardin which could be nice, although we had incredibly slow service when we went there for lunch. Pondok Vienna, Coral View and Hidden Paradise are on the beach, Bayu Cottages and Le Jardin not. Bayu is set above the beach with great views.

Amed is great!

As well as Lipah Bay, the next 2 beaches at Lean and Selang Beach, also have sandy beaches and calm waters that make for easy snorkling and safe swimming,

There are several good dive companies in the area.

Eurodive & Ecodive are recommended by many.

Enjoy Amed, it is a wonderful part of Bali

Hi, just a question whilst on the topic of beaches an Amed. Staying at Candi Dasa in November and intend on doing another day snorkelling trip on the outrigger/boat.

Apologies for what may seem an obvious question, however can you get to some of the beaches mentioned Lipah etc., from Candi Dasa by boat?

Thanks

Im not sure that you would make Candidasa to Amed in an outrigger/jukung.

It is quite a long way by sea and the ocean has strong currents and is very choppy as you head around the north east tip of Bali.

Overland from Candidasa, it will take just over an hour to reach Lipah or Selang beach ,by the main road [Amlapura/Tirtagannga/Culik/Amed] or one and a half hours if you take the quite spectacular and winding coast road [Amlapura./Seraya/Selang. Travel in by one road and out by the other perhaps

You do not need a boat to go snorkling here. You can snorkle from the sandy beach. You only have to go a few meters from shore, in thigh high water, and you will begin to see the fish and coral. You do not need to go out of your depth to see spectacular sites!!

It is also interesting to snorkle at Banyuning [1 km east of Selang] where there is a small Japanese wreck, quite close to the shore. However this is a stony beach and the currents can be strong. Morning is the best time here.

Thank You everyone

You have all given us plenty to sift through, sounds like we can't go to far wrong.

Think we may extend the time we were planing on spending in Amed!!
