Everybody who has ever visited this quiet coastal town on the far east coast of Bali remarks about its beauty! For me it was a simple and very short change of scenery. Between snorkelling for hours and waking up at 4am in order to go fishing with a local fisherman (Pak Nyoman) – whilst witnessing one of the best sunrises of my life – my trip was over far too soon. My only hope going forward is that the ever-growing number of tourists to Amed don’t disturb the relaxed atmosphere and more importantly, the local way of life.
A big shoutout to Mark from the Onion Collective in Ubud for inviting me on what was in essence a family getaway! Also, thanks to Sama-Sama Bungalows for great accommodation and even greater food!
