Not really a tip but a sight worth seeing. Jemeluk Bay in the Amed area is home to huge fleets of 'jukung', the local fishing boats. From high on the cliffs looking down you can see rows and rows of them - a spectacular sight. The fishermen leave in the evening and are back early in the morning so the high part of many beaches is covered in the jukung during the day. A lot of care is taken of these very colorful craft.
The coast is one small fishing village after the other. The fishermen go out to sea every evening and return at dawn.
It is quite a sight to look out over the ocean and see all of the boats, with their multi colored sails, returning to shore.
This is one of my favorite things to see.
The fishermen bring their boats in every morning and park them on the beach. As far as you can see down the coast their are boats. It doesn't leave much available sand
for anyone to use except them.
In Bali many of the places that you will stay have open air showers in the bathroom.
WARNING...they are addicting.
You will probably want to tear out your ceiling when you get back home.
The children of the village love to come to the bay to play on the rocks and swim. Most of them are quite young and they do not bother to wear any clothing while playing in the water.
The small village streets are lined with decorated bamboo poles known as penjor.
This is for the clelbration of Galungan which occurs every 210 days.
