More Information

The closest airport to Amed is Denpasar/Bali international airport. From the airport, it takes a 2.5-3h car ride to Amed.

Divers find the easiest option is to have your Amed accommodation or dive center arrange a pick up for you from the airport. It is possible to arrange a driver at the airport as well, but this tends to be more expensive and a bit of a hassle. There is also a daily bus service from the airport to Amed.

For the more adventurous, renting a scooter and driving to Amed, is definitely fun! Roads are generally well maintained, but are narrow and get crowded with trucks, busses, cars and motorbikes. An international driving license is required. Never forget the most important rule on the roads in Bali/Indonesia: If it is bigger than you, get out of the way.
