Jemeluk Beach, Amed

#2 of 8 in Beaches in Karangasem
Beach · Nature / Park
Walk into the water at Jemeluk Beach, and within a few steps find yourself surrounded by tropical fish of every color. The immediacy of the teeming coral reefs, combined with the shallow water and weak currents, make the bay ideal for beginner snorkelers and divers. Several diving schools operate on site, so you can easily learn or hone your technique. The stoney black sands with boats pulled up all along their length don't favor sunbathers, but they certainly create a picturesque setting for a seaside stroll. You won't go hungry at the beach, with plenty of good restaurants serving up delicious fresh seafood. Please be careful about standing on coral while swimming, as this kills the coral permanently. For Jemeluk Beach and beyond, use our Amed route maker website to get the most from your Amed vacation.

  • This is the best beach in Amed for snorkelling. There are lots of warungs/restaurants to choose from if you wish to eat and drink. Unlike some other beaches, this is easy to access and a simple walk.....  more »
  • During corona time, empty) mask and fins you can rent for 20K included shower with fresh water after. Be careful about the corals there, don't destroy the nature. don't get sunburned.
  • Truly a terrific shore-diving spot and far more relaxed atmosphere than anywhere in or near the southern hotspots of the island. Came here on a whim, with a slight possibility of diving. Good thing I found an incredible place (Eco Dive on Amed Beach) and befriended the locals, because besides diving, there's not much to do here besides affordably chill on the beach. Locals and returning visitors do say it's been going up about 10% every year. Gojek does NOT operate in any capacity here, so you must have a scooter or get ready to pay ridiculous prices to locals for lifts. Beware especially of the ATM's.. there is no bank in Amed (Amlapura is the nearest, 30m drive) so all the ATM's are free-standing. Ran into a lot of people stressed because their card was skimmed and account frozen back home or the machine just "ate" it and promptly died. So bring cash or make sure to check your account often if you must use the ATM's. Authorities obviously don't care, because the locals say it's been a thing here for years. Way to go, regional government.
