Amed Beach is a 14-kilometer long stretch of coast in East Bali incorporating several fishing villages. It has been on the radar of keen divers for a while due to the vast coral reefs, which are following the coast line closely. Just a few meters away from the shore, hundreds of colorful fish meander gracefully over dazzling corals, some of which can be admired only two meters below the water surface. Further out, divers can enjoy big reef formations and coral gardens teeming with marine life, such as sea turtles, reef tip sharks, rays and a variety of vibrant tropical fish. Amed Beach is also a popular base for visitors learning the extreme sport freediving or wanting to dive to the Liberty, a US cargo ship wreck in Tulamben.
