Amed Chill Out Retreat:
Just before Tulamben at about hours from Sanur we have Amed. This is one of our favorite Diving Area. It offers great underwater scenery with very good visibility most of the time of the year, excellent and healthy reef with lots of fish and an amazing variation of nudibranchs and other small critters, including pygmy seahorses. There is also a WWII small Japanese wreck in very shallow and accessible water.
Amed has got many dive sites accessible from shore and others accessible by Local Boat Jukong. Pygmy seahorses and school of fish are common in this area.

The atmosphere on land is very nice and lay back, there are several small restaurant and the people are exceptionally friendly. Early in the morning form the hilly view point is possible to see the mighty Agung volcano and in exceptional clear days it is also possible to see Rinjani Volcano from Lombok.
