beach time!


It is a well deserved holiday for me... I was longing for beach and was working straight through weekend this past month. Amed was the destination, enjoy the picture jump!


Amed refers to a long stretch of coast running from the village of Cucik about 14 km eastwards incorporating the seven villages of Amed, Jemeluk, Bunutan, Lipah, Selang, Banyuning and Aas. The pace of life here is slow and the coastal scenery quite stunning making Amed the perfect place for a relaxed holiday in Bali. Amed's villagers live from fishing, salt-making and tourism. The lack of tourism-based revenue, its remote nature and the generally harsh environment for farming, meant that this area was very much one of the poorer areas in Bali. Amed is famous for its beaches, lined with traditional outrigger fishing boats. There is quite coarse black volcanic sand at Amed village beach. As you move further east (and away from Mount Agung), the beaches have softer sand and become more of a mid grey-brown in color. The prettiest bays are probably those at Jemeluk and Lipah but the whole stretch of coastline is very attractive.







It was a great trip, good company and fantastic weekend!

thank you for reading the bits,
