Amed is a 10 km stretch of coastal villages along Bali’s north-east coast, about 2 and a half hour drive from Denpasar airport. It is one of Bali’s unspoiled destinations that offers crystal clear waters, quite beaches and grants you access to some of Bali’s best snorkeling and scuba diving sites, including The Liberty wreck at Tulamben.
For people who rather stay above water, a sailing or fishing trip off Amed coast offers spectacular views of the coast with Mount Agung towering in the background. At Tirta Gangga also known as The Water Palace, a 20 minute drive from Amed, you can explore the beautiful lush gardens scattered with ponds and stone cut statues and swim in a pool originally designed for royalty.
