Morth of Amed

Is there anything worth seeing North of Amed. We are turning our trips from Udub to Amed and Amed to Sanur into day trips. But I am thinking about getting a driver for the day while in Amed and heading in a different direction if it is worth it.

There is not actually a lot to see north of Amed.

In fact your driver will not even be willing to take you there.

Basically if you go to Amed and a look north you will see a big expanse of blue wobbly stuff. This is called the ocean.

To go east, west or south you will find some beautiful country side and interesting places to visit.

The road heading south east along the coast from Amed is a lovely drive. You will see numerous small villages and the real rural life of Bali.

If you take the road along the north coast from Amed you will go through Talumben which has a great wreck that can be snorkelled from the beach. This is a poor, dry area of Bali, very much dominated by the largest volcano on the island Gunung Agung. It's quite different to the green centre or developed south/central. It's a good idea to engage a local driver who will know temples, springs, roads that are OK and scenic, local warungs (not many Western style restaurants north of Talumben). A friend of mine who was travelling over there last week did this and had a great time.
