Side Trips

Amed

— 6 nights
A snaking coastline and quaint, sleepy fishing villages characterize Amed, a stretch of shorefront with seven villages in Bali's east.
Change things up with these side-trips from Amed: Subagan (Puri Agung Karangasem & Jasri Beach). There's still lots to do: see some colorful creatures with a scuba or snorkeling tour, kick back and relax at Virgin Beach, soothe aching muscles at some of the top local wellness centers, and admire the natural beauty at Taman Tirtagangga.

To find maps, other places to visit, traveler tips, and tourist information, you can read our Amed road trip planning site.

You can drive from Sidemen to Amed in 1.5 hours. In September, plan for daily highs up to 88°F, and evening lows to 71°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 19th (Sat) to allow time to travel back home.

Karangasem remains best known for its mountainous landscape, isolated beaches, and small villages preserving age-old local traditions. Snorkeling trips off the coast provide a look at the area's rich marine life, while guided tours of old temples ensure a brief but rewarding glimpse into the region's past. The main urban areas cater to modern tourists while maintaining their old-fashioned charm, with traditional markets, city temples, and shrines providing plenty of rewarding places to visit on a Karangasem holiday.
