Amed is a long coastal strip of fishing villages in North East Bali. Once known for its traditional salt farming it’s now known as a low key dive spot – in fact it’s one of the better underwater playgrounds in Bali with an historical shipwreck as one of the attractions. The beaches are lined with traditional jukung outriggers that are used daily by the local fishermen. The pace of life here is slow and relaxed. Nearby attractions on land include Mount Agung, Besakih Temple and Tirta Gangga water palace.
