What we say: 4 stars

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.
