Amed

Listed under Villages in Bali, Indonesia.

Pin It

Amed is an charming coastal region of steep headlands and small beach-lined coves situated on Bali’s far northeast coast. The area is dotted with traditional fishing / farming villages. In the mid 1980s a few low-key resorts began springing up. Since then dozens of small boutique resorts have arrived.

Fortunately, the resorts all blend into Amed’s traditional villages rather than taking over. Amed still looks, feels and acts like a region of traditional Balinese villages.

Amed is best suited for relaxing and enjoying nature. Just offshore are superb coral reefs for snorkeling and diving. Visitors can go sailing and fishing on traditional Balinese outriggers. Suntan on quiet beaches. Hike the many trails that meander through Amed’s hills. Get a massage on the beach or poolside from village women.
