Rewarding snorkelling right on the beach

Photo of , , Amed

What we say: 4 stars

The snorkelling in Amed is fantastic, with live coral, an abundance of fish and crystal clear waters at many of the beaches — this is a major reason that many come to the area.

Snorkelling can be done at most of the beaches in the Amed area, but the best are at the eastern end of Jemeluk next to the hill, at Selang in front of Good Karma and at the Japanese shipwreck in Banyuning. The water in these locations is the clearest, has the most coral and greatest amounts of fish.

Most hotels will allow guests to rent snorkelling gear directly, but the quality is variable.

For those with their own transport, a trip to Euro-Dive in Lipah is the best bet with rental costing 30,000 rupiah per day and the quality first rate. Good quality gear is also available at the Japanese shipwreck in Banyuning for 30,000 rupiah.

    The snorkeling in Lipah, on the beach behind Pondok Vienna Hotel is the best in the area. We stay in Jemeluk but scooter to Lipah for snorkeling.
