Amed Dive Site is one of the most popular Bali Places of Interest located on the right side of the bay which takes approximately five minutes by Jukung or Balinese traditional boat. The depth ranges from 10 – 35 meters and although the wall itself is a relative small part of the dive, here you can usually find white tip reef sharks, napoleon wrasse, school of batfish, and some big trevally. Once you pass the wall you will find a deep slope which is rich in corals. If you turn right towards shallower water, you will see big bommies on the sand, covered with gorgonians.
