Pretty black sandy beach with on-site restaurant, sunbed and snorkel gear rental. Easy water access at high tide but tricky at low tide! Be careful and not walk through the corals! You need to swim approx 30-50 meters far from the shore to find nice...More

Would definitely recommend it here if you want to swim or snorkel straight from the shore. Very easy access to the sea. Only did not give 5* because the sun beds are too expensive if you just want an hour there. My wife sat in...More

We rented a villa in Amed so cannot recommend hotels. The villa was lovely but on a black beach with no direct snorkelling. It was called Ashling Villa. It was too hot to walk to warungs so we used a scooter even though we... More
