Amed Beach Resort is approximately 2 hour’s drive from Denpasar Airport and the southern resorts of Kuta and Nusa Dua. The Amed area is a series of small bays and quiet fishing villages.The beach is only a few hundred meters in front of Amed Beach Resort. Due to the local volcano Agung, the beach has fine black sand and in some parts there are small rocks, so it is recommended to wear rubber shoes to avoid stepping on small lava rocks and corals. If you prefer lighter colored sand beaches, there is one only a three-minute scooter ride away at a nearby lagoon, and each beach is famous for its excellent snorkeling. The safe, calm waters are perfect for swimming, some of the best snorkeling and diving in Bali can be found in this area. A variety of tropical trees provide welcoming shade if you need it. You can snorkel directly off the beach.
