Amed is a charming fishing village on the east coast of Bali that has grown in popularity recently because of its excellent snorkeling and diving. You can easily reach Amed from Ubud, Sanur, Lovina, or anywhere else in central Bali.

Amed consists of one small main street and you can easily walk from one end to the other, exploring plenty of local restaurants and dive shops along the way. Accommodation in Amed ranges from luxury to basic and offers Amed hostels as well as a wide variety of good quality homestay rooms for great prices. The food in Amed is also amazing, with friendly local families serving up the delicious produce and fish caught just that day. The local restaurants serve some of the freshest, most local and loving food in all of Bali. The friendly people in Amed make it a destination worth visiting; you will experience genuine hospitality and maybe even learn a little about the culture.

Amed is also famous for its local spirit, Arak. In some parts of the country, this potent fermented palm wine has a bad reputation for being mixed with other dangerous liquids, but in Amed the people pride themselves of the quality of this spirit so it is easy to find unadulterated Arak. It is surprisingly potent and the locals who serve it to you will give a friendly reminder to not drive your motorbike home.

A black sand beach stretches down the coast of Amed, past fishing boats and beachside restaurants with Mount Agung stretching toward the sky in the distance. There are a few great snorkeling spots only a short swim from the beach; you can find all types of fish living in huge coral, starfish, hundreds of tiny colorful fish, eels, and even turtles. If you love underwater life, the nearby area holds some of the best diving in Southeast Asia -- if not the world. You can dive shipwrecks, reef walls, or go for night dives with many quality dive operators to choose from. The sun sets down the black-sand beach each night with the view of Mount Agung in the distance, kids play in ocean, and the sweet smell of clove cigarettes and incense float in the air. Amed is a magical friendly village that will captivate you from the moment you arrive.
