You’ve partied in Kuta, you’ve kicked back in Seminyak and Sanur, you’ve been blown away by Jimbaran and Uluwatu, and, of course, you’ve had a spiritual experience in Ubud.

There aren’t many places in the world that travellers know as well as Bali, and yet, the Island of the Gods is always waiting to reveal a new face.

Located in Bali’s northeastern corner, less than three hours away from the familiar districts, Amed is a village built on diving. It might not feature on many itineraries, but if you like the idea of a $30 room a few feet away from the beach and an armada of outrigger canoes called jukung, you’ve found paradise.


Jukung (outrigger canoes) at rest

The perfect cast

There’s a storm a’ comin’

Fishing lines

Chill Bar

Balancing act

Family time in the shadows of Mount Agung

Like father, like son

Red and green

Push yourself

Somewhere only we know

School’s out

The right angle

Mount Agung at sunset

Sunrise stroll

Catch of the day

Safe to shore

Mystical mornings

Two by two

Full face



On the beach


Reeling it in

Here’s looking at you

A quiet place

A shop with a view

All in a day’s work

Rice paddies near Abang, on the way back to town
