1. Re: Legian to Amed

As for tours enroute to Amed there are several places you can visit. Kerta Gosa at Klung Kung which has a small museum & a council chamber which has amazing paintings on the ceiling. You could take the Sidemen road & drive through Selat & Sidemen for rice terrace & scenery. Then take the coast road from Ujung to Amed, takes longer than the inland road but well worth it for the views of bays & jukungs lined up on the beaches far down below. At Ujung there is also Taman Ujung water gardens.

Or you could take the inland road, stop off at Tirtagangga water gardens, there are stepping stones across one of the ponds, 2 spring fed pools for swimming, water's cold but fun! it's so peaceful, one of my favourite places. Some spectacular rice terraces nearby & a short drive to Budakeling where you'll find gold & silversmiths. There's also the Bali Aga village at Tenganan where they practice unusual customs. just past Kusamba is Pura Goa Lawah, the bat cave. You then pass through Padangbai & Candidasa where you can stop at one of the beaches or for a meal maybe.

In the Kulungkung museum check out the "justice" Bale where the crime and punishments are depicted in pictures on the ceiling.

The Water Palace has been renovated in the last 7 or so years after it was destroyed by the 1961 volcanic eruption.

I agree the coast road is spectacular like a min Italian Riviera.

Also take note of the salt drying near the beaches.

You could stop at Blue Lagoon or Bias Tugal at Padangbai. or Pasir Putih at Perasi near Candidasa. All are sandy beaches. Vincents restaurant in Candidasa has good food.
