amed attractions

we are staying at the puri wirata resort right now. Are there any markets around here? we thought we might hire a scooter & explore, but not sure of where anything is or distances.

any help gratefully received.

we can book a tour to Ubud (8hr tour) would this be enough time to see the monkey forest & other sites in the area etc? We were in sanur last week, but I was sick for 3 days, so we didnt do much except shop while we were there.

There is a large traditional market in Amlapura, which is 40 mins drive from you. It is open daily until 1.00pm.

You may consider a fabulous bike tour with East Bali Bike tours. They pick you up from your hotel and drive you to the foothills of Mount Agung and you then cycle down through the stunning scenery of the Karangasem regency until you reach the lovely secret White Sand Beach for a swim and some lunch/dinner

The drive to Ubud is approx 2,5hours from Amed. Taking the route through Sideman is highly recommended.. this is a little longer than the more direct road. If you are interested in hand weaving, you can admire the Songket which is hand woven there

Snorkling is one of the best pass times in the Amed area

Lipah Beach is not too far from Puri Wirata. Or you can take a trip to the small shipwreck at Banyuning

If you hire a scooter, you can take the coast road to Amlapura. It probably the best coastal road in Bali

I always recommend the coast drive from Amed to Candidasa - spectacular scenery - gorgeous little bays with jakungs lined-up all around the water's edge - places to stop for a drink etc along the way - perhaps lunch in CD and then return along the inland road - Tirtanggaga and some the most beautiful rice paddies to be seen or you could go the other way around.

Though you may have done some or all of this on the way through to Amed on the inland road. If so, there's a traditional village on the southen side of CD that you could vist and also the Arak factory...mmm, we liked that tour. Makes for a great day out.
