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.
