from Amed to Balian beach

Has anyone drove from Amed to Balian Beach? I was told that it should take 4/5 hours depending on ttraffic, but a driver in Amed is telling me 8hs. Is that correct? Thanks

Have not driven from amed to Balian. Have ridden to Balian from Kuta and also from Kuta to Amed - both fairly long drives in themselves so I'm thinking 4/5 hours may be a little conservative estimate, but they may have some short cuts which can cut the time down. I just checked Google maps and it said 3hrs 46 mins so your driver in Amed is possibly a slow driver.

Or the driver is allowing for ceremonies, which can hold things up.

I think 4 hours would be easy and perhaps your driver is talking return trip

There is a road straight accross to Singaraja then down to Armed which would be a nice drive or go to Sanur max 2 hours then up to Amed 1.5 hours

it is roughly 5 to 6 hours drives depends on how much busy the traffic is.

The route from Padang Bai all the way up to Balian beach is a busy street which all trucks, buses are driving through therefore you take long hours driving.

should not be in rush then you will enjoy the journey.

Good luck
