How is Amed and Tulamben in general?
A Traditional Salt Farmers Village with Amazing Dive Sites
Amed is a perfect example of secluded and natural part of Bali. It has large stretches of black sand beaches, which are rarely visited by tourists. You will need about three-hours drive to get here from most of the areas at the South. Visitors are mainly divers and those looking for a quiet and peaceful place to relax. The area offers a very diverse landscape, and mountains rise steeply from sandy and rocky beaches, moving up through small winding roads to the famous sunrise and sunset point at Jemeluk bay. This viewpoint is a must-visit destination in the area; many cafes and restaurants are normally packed with guests during sunset hours.
Only about 30 minutes away to the north, there is Tulamben. Serious divers can take a day trip north to Tulamben, where the American USS Liberty’s famous wreck can be seen. Simultaneously, snorkelers can seek out a secret Japanese shipwreck that can be found nearer to the beach, better ask local for the accurate location. The wreck is a top place for a snorkel, as it is close to shore, full of marine life, and not very deep.
