Amed is an area of black sand beaches and coves on the north east coast of Bali. It is a series of distinct villages and areas spread out over approximately 10 kilometres. The areas that make up Amed are Jemeluk, Lipah, Lehan, Seland and Aas.. There is a small fee for entering the area. There is a lot of accommodation with restaurants attached which are spread well apart over the Amed area. The feel of the Amed is very quiet.
