    Space for everyone
    I as dropped off at the eastern end and walked the 1.5kms length of this black sand beach. On my walk I stopped off at Chill bar for a cold drink and some brunch as it had been recommended to me. The beach was surprisingly clean from trash given how long it is. You can go for a dip or snorkel basically anywhere along its length.

    Good for snorkling
    I was left off near the eastern end of beautiful black sand beach, and I walked the entire length of it, which is approximately 1.5 kilometres. Because it was highly recommended to me, I made a pit stop at Chill Bar on my walk there to get a refreshing drink and some brunch. Considering how long the beach is, the lack of trash on it was a pleasant and unexpected surprise. You can go swimming or snorkelling pretty much anywhere along its length. The water is calm and clear.

    Top Notch Snorkeling, Amazing Marine Life! But a lot Needs to be Done to Clean Up!
    I stayed across the street from Amed Beach and spent everyday here snorkeling. I found the black sand to be unique. The snorkeling here is one of my favorites. I saw so many fish species, garden eels, a hawksbill sea turtle, and so much more. The coral in spots was stunning, I couldn't get enough of it. That being said, I saw so much plastic floating in the water, I've never see it like this anywhere else and yes it washes up on the beach. I went diving and the dive master told me that many tourists help clean up the beaches. I think everyone needs to be involved with keeping the beaches of Bali clean.

Don’t believe the hype. Awful place. We booked to stay for 4 nights, left after a few hours. Construction everywhere, noise, littered beaches. Balinese culture doesn’t exist here, locals don’t have the same kind nature found in the rest of Bali. We booked what we were told to be a beautiful place on the beach. Turned out to be on a main busy road, rooms were dirty, view obstructed and noisy. Very disappointing.

During my travels, I have been to a lot of different beach towns, and I have to say that Amed is without a doubt one of my top favourites. If you are looking for fine powder, you will not find it on this beach because the beach itself is made of black sand that was produced by volcanic activity. The water is nice and warm, and the beach is quite clean.

Don't bother visiting this place....it is very dirty with excrement and rubbish on the beach. The whole area is like a landfill site! The hotel that we stayed in was apparently the best rated in the area....what a joke...it smelled and was grubby! We left after one night? My tip....don't rely on reviews....book a hotel for one night only and if you like it extend your stay. If not move on!

The garbage on the streets, on the beach and in the sea is a travesty. Some of the tourism owners are trying but they are fighting an uphill battle with the leadership of the town. What a shame. Candidasa is so much cleaner!!

Amed beach is located on the eastern side of Bali island. It will take around 3 hours from the Bali airport.
I've been to many beach towns in my travels and I need to say, Amed is absolutely one of my favorites! The beach itself is volcanic with dark sand.
The main attraction of Amed beach lies in the natural underwater spectacle with fantastic coral reefs and exquisite fish. Therefore, it makes Amed Beach Karangasem a famous place for freediving, snorkeling, and scuba diving in Bali; so, if you love underwater adventure, Amed Karangasem is one area to visit in Bali.

Besides a long stretch of black sand beach, there is also a village nearby the beach called Amed. Amed village is a small fishing village on the northeast side of Bali Island, which located close by Tulamben Karangasem.

Where can I snorkel in Amed? Below are the best snorkeling spots along the Amed coast.
Kembali Beach Bungalows coastline.
Teluk Jemeluk.
Lipah beach.
Selang beach.
Over all, Amed beach and the area is a lovely place to visit, to do snorkling, diving or just driving around.
Please keep clean the beach and put your trash in the right place. Enjoy!
