Bali’s Northeast is a wonderful mix of relaxed atmosphere, interesting sights, and in the rainy season, a generally dry place to camp. We are fortunate enough to have a wonderful little camping spot on this coast and our guests really enjoy camping here. We call this our “Amed secret spot”. It’s a small piece of oceanfront land for which we have made arrangements with the owner to allow us to camp there and use a nearby bathroom.
Our secret spot sits on a grassy piece of land overlooking some tidal pools. There is direct access to the pools and you can swim/snorkel here if you don’t mind walking over a few rocks. If you are looking for a sandy beach then all you have to do is walk about 100 meters down to a nearby fisherman’s beach. There is also a small resort nearby with a pool. This place is run by Made who is an absolutely delightful woman. You can get something to eat or a coffee and use the pool if you want.
The camping spot looks out over the Lombok strait. You can see Mount Rinjai rising out of the sea and can also enjoy beautiful sunrises. Just behind you will be Mount Agung. From this vantage point it looks massive.
Amed town is about 15 minutes drive from this spot. Sometimes I stop in Amed on the way, pick up some meals from a local restaurant and keep them in the campervan refrigerator. You can also stop at Tirta Gangga on the way. This is an old water palace and is well worth a visit. Another excellent nearby activity is the Liberty Wreck diving site. This is one of the most spectacular snorkeling spots you will ever see. This is a 125m sunken US warship sitting just 30m off the coast. Lots of fish and coral to see! You can rent equipment at the site.
The price to stay per night is 100k Rupiah. You can also buy firewood from the owner.
If you look at the pictures we have of this camping spot you will see that some of them were taken in the dry season and some in the rainy season. This place can go from brown to green in a matter of days.
