Half Day trip from Ahmed

We will be spending a couple of days in Amed in August and will then be going to Lovina for 3 days.

Can any one recommend a 3 to 4 hour trip from Amed. We prefer to get off the beaten track as much as possible.

You could take the inland road through the mountains, stop off at Tirtagangga water gardens, there are stepping stones across one of the ponds, 2 spring fed pools for swimming, water's cold but fun! It's so peaceful, one of my favourite places. Some spectacular rice terraces nearby & a short drive to Budakeling where you'll find gold & silversmiths. There's also the Bali Aga village at Tenganan where they practice unusual customs. Just past Kusamba is Pura Goa Lawah, the bat cave. You then pass through Padangbai & Candidasa where you can stop at one of the beaches or for a meal maybe.

Kerta Gosa at Klung Kung which has a small museum & a council chamber which has amazing paintings on the ceiling. You could take the Sidemen road & drive through Selat & Sidemen for rice terrace & scenery. Then take the coast road from Ujung to Amed, takes longer than the inland road but well worth it for the views of bays & jukungs lined up on the beaches far down below. At Ujung there is also Taman Ujung water gardens.

Take the coast road, spectacular views, a bit like the Riviera.

Just outside Alampura is the Water Palace that has been renovated.

Go back through Alampura ( Karangasem ). The name was changed because it was thought to be unlucky after the volcanic eruption in the 1960's.

Then back via the inland road. More great views as you pass over the top of the hill.
