Diving around Gili Selang is quite a challenge and only for advanced divers. The strong current between Bali and Lombok hits the small island at the north-east flank and creates some action. This site is also called -The Express-. The strong current prevents the sea life to take roots. But out in the blue you have a good chance to see bigger sharks as the grey reef shark and sometimes the famous Hammerhead.

Some soft and hard corals. Bumphead parrot fish, hammerhead shark, mackerel, white-tip shark, grey reef shark, moray eel, jacks, turtles, barracuda, rays, frogfish.
Jemeluk Beach is located in Amed – East Bali. It is actually a bay area for snorkelling and sunbathing. Warm waters, clear visibility and an abundance of aquatic life (including turtles, the occasional barracuda and shoals of colourful fish) make this a perfect beach.
Eastside is a bit rocky for small children; the western part is better. A lot of bars and restaurant nearby to get refreshments.
