How to go diving and snorkelling in Amed

Amed and Tulamben offer some of the best hotspots for diving and snorkelling right next to the coast of East-Bali. Near Tulamben is the famous WWII USA shipwreck called ‘The US Liberty’. Close to Amed there is a small Japanese WWII shipwreck just in front of the coast. And there are many more exciting places to go diving and snorkelling.

Snorkelling with your family in Jemeluk Bay Amed

The most suitable place to go snorkelling and diving in Amed is at Jemeluk Bay, as mostly the sea current here is not so strong. Small children and those who are trying for their first time can step easily into the sea to discover the colourful fish, coral and sea stars in the Bali Sea. It’s also very exciting to explore the special underwater statues of a ‘mermaid’ and a ‘temple’.

What to bring with you when snorkelling

Masks and other gear can be rented in Amed, but I always bring my own snorkle mask.

The villa is about 40m from the beach with some of the best macro sealife you can find (shrimp, crabs, seahorses, etc) 10/10 would stay again!

My friend and I had a wonderfull time in 2017, snorkelling with Mary in the sea in front of Villa Sinar Cinta. I had never done this before and was suprised by the beautifull underwater world. An experiance I will never forget.

Those were the days! It was such a pleasure to share this underwater adventure with you in Amed. Also with using the new snorkelling masks we just discovered. I hope you will be back again to explore more of East-Bali.
Merry Christmas and a Great New Year 2021!
