Do not expect white sandy beaches because Amed and Tulamben have a distinctive feature that other beaches dont have: black and red pebbles covered the beach. Amed has Japanese ship wreck and submarine mailbox, while Tulamben has US Army Transport shipwreck. These pebbles, shipwreck, submarine mailbox, and of course, beautiful coral reefs make it the must place to visit while you traveling Bali Island.
