Help needed with amed

Hi were heading over to Bali soon were staying in legian but would love to do some amazing snorkeling so were hopping to go up to amed for a night.

We were thinking of riding our mopeds up there and then have them to get around and check it all out.

We have two children under 3 and wondering where is good accomadation to stay with them also.

Also has anyone used a nanny service up in amed?

Hope someone can give us Afew tips.

Thanks :-)

Hi!

Unfortunately I do not know much about Amed, but would like to know, how you are going to safely transport the baby and the toddler on mopeds/motorbikes/scooters?

Amed is a long drive from Kuta and the roads can be fraught with problems, more so during the wet season.

I sincerely hope for the sake of your children you reconsider this idea.

Cheers

And............ no such thing as Mopeds to hire in Bali...........they are all motorbikes (over 100cc).

Please do some more research before you act on this idea. Look closely at your license or whether you are even licensed to do this. Look very, very closely at you travel insurance and whether you will be covered if you do this. Have a long, hard look at the accident statistics for motorbike riders in Bali in any given year. Also have a long hard look at the actual traffic and road conditions in Bali before you decide to do this.

The previous posters are spot on with their concerns. Hiring a car and driver is not expensive and so much safer than the motorbikes. I cringe every time I see motorbikes on the "main" roads. Not a place for a family with kids on motorbikes. That's my two cents worth.

Lovinbali2, a question:- what you are planning on doing in relation to transporting your defenseless children on motorbikes would be illegal in Australia, so why even contemplate doing so in Bali?

There are no helmets that will fit your children, they cannot be safely restrained, the journey is far too long for a toddler to hang on.

Your plan is, in my opinion, shows no regard for the safety and wellbeing of your precious children!

Please, for their sake, hire a driver! The cost is minimal when compared to the results, should you proceed and injuries occur or worse.

Re accommodation in Amed.

Link below may help with some options.

Sorry not child specific, but you may find something suitable.

Sometimes it's often better to book ahead as Amed is becoming more popular & you will have little ones with you.

Sorry don't have info re nanny services in Amed

Have been to Amed a few times & we usually hire a car as we prefer that to a 3 hr trip or so on a bike...sore backside, dead legs etc..

(Sorry but can't imagine little ones tolerating it on a bike & agree it's dangerous as well)

We usually stay a couple nights as 1 is a bit rushed with the drive up and back etc.

Have a look at Coral view villa's family rooms, they are in a great location.

I would also suggest you hire a driver for your family.

I may not have worded my question in the right. In relation to the mopeds there is a group of us going up and I'm not planning on having my children on the scooters all that way. Some of us will go in a car whilst others will take bikes. So we have a way of getting around while in amed.

My children's safety is a 1st and would never endanger them.

This will be our 10th time in Bali and I'm quite excited to see a different area and see the cultures in amed
