Amed refers to a long stretch of coast running from the village of Culik about 14 km eastwards incorporating the villages of Amed, Jemeluk, Bunutan, Lipah and Selang
The pace of life here is slow and the coastal scenery quite stunning.
Amed offers shallow and sheltered slopes teeming with reef fish. However, in 1998, Amed was badly affected by coral-bleaching as a result of El Nino that affected the reef within the bay and down to 10 to 12 meters. Today the reef is recovering well and offers diving conditions more suited to those uncomfortable with the currents of the Strait.
