Amed is located in E of Bali, just 30min NE from Amlapura. The beach is covered by black sand and rocks. Not attractive but it is famous new diving spot for the huge drop of wall. The tourist area is not in the village of Amed. The road runs along the coast from Amed to the S. and most of the hotels and diving centers on the road 2km from Amed Village called Jemeluk Beach. There is nothing but the foreign tourist facilities which makes this place very expensive for food and accommodation.

You can come here by Parama from major towns in Bali.
See the price below.

From Denpasar, Butabulan Terminal, take a bus(medium size) to Amlapura,
8-10,000Rp for 2 hours. Then change to a bemo to Amed, 3-4000Rp, 30min. I think the bemo stops at the village, but the driver may take you to Jemeluk Beach and asks 10,000Rp. Locals don't pay extra for the 2km detour. For my case after 10min negotiation, he acceded 3000Rp.
