For boats

Amed is located 24 miles from Gili Trawangan and it is a little beach town. There are many health food stores (vegetarian and non-vegetarian restaurants).
 
APPROACHING
 
Very easy but watch for many unlit Fish Attracting Devices (FADs) off  the whole N coast of  Bali (do not attempted at night).
 
ANCHORAGE
 
Ambat is not protected bay and there is often some swell.  During SE winds it is likely sheltered, however, if  winds are more E or even ESE bay can be uncomfortable in the afternoons. In the NW monsoon season the shelter is not recommended. If W winds blow the bay can be pleasant but NW winds which blow for days making the anchorage danger.
 
Anchor in 15-18m of water on a sandy bottom as close to the shore as you feel comfortable.  The drop off  is very steep. Note: You will be 150m from the shore, if the swell / wind pushes boat to the shore, deck watches are recommended.
 
Position of anchorage: 008 19.93 S 115° 38.56 E
 
DINGHY LANDING
 
On the beach, close to the beach bar / restaurant.
 
PROVISIONING
 
Provisioning in Amed is possible but not recommended. Less products and higher prices -  Lovina (45 miles to the W) has a much greater selection of  foodstuffs.

For crews

Amed has some of  the best dive sites in Bali, that is usually the main reason to stop there. Snorkeling is also very good. The water is very clean and most of  the dive sites are accessed from shore.  There are two great shipwrecks within a short drive of  the anchorage. The Japanese shipwreck is located a few kilometers E of  the anchorage and can be accessed by shore.  The U.S.S. Liberty shipwreck  (IMO best spot) is found in Tulamben village to the W and can also be accessed by shore. There are two or three dive operators in Amed you can dive with.
