It is a seaside village in north east Bali about 2 hours drive from Sanur. The landscape is arid and its beach consists of pebble and black sand.
It is here that divers from around the world meet to discover the wreck of the USS Liberty, beached in 1942 and moved to the sea in 1963 after the eruption of Mount Agung.

The Liberty was a 120 meter long freighter built in 1918 in New Jersey (USA) and requisitioned by the US Army during the Second World War. During his last trip, he was hit by two torpedoes from a Japanese submarine on June 11, 1942 when he crossed the Lombok Strait. He was towed towards Singaraja, but taking too much water, he was intentionally stranded on the beach of Tulamben to be emptied of his cargo. He remained from 1942 to 1963 on the beach. The earthquake, caused by the eruption of Mount Agun, made him slide into the sea.
Thus, Bali has this world famous diving site with this wreck for more than 50 years, and what a pleasure for us to make you discover it.
The wreck of the USS LIBERTY is 40 meters from the edge of Tulamben beach and placed on the sand between 6 to 28 meters deep. You will meet barracudas, pygmy seahorses hidden in multicolored gorgonians, groupers, batfish, angelfish, parrot fish, tiger pond, eels, jackfish, black tip sharks or white tips, nudibranchs or turtles.
The wreck has a lot to offer for both photographers and naturalists. It is also possible to dive at night on the wreck to meet the humpback parrot or the Spanish dancer!

The Tulamben Droplet forms three giant fingers from 3 meters deep and up to 70 meters. It is formed by lava flows and covered with giant gorgonians up to 3 meters and a multitude of coral giant sponges, food source for parrot fish.
You can meet black tip sharks, dogtooth tunas, stingrays, humphead wrasse or humphead parrots. The coral is in very good health and has survived the passage of el nino (hot water flow) very well.

This dive site is located in front of the main Tulamben hotels and the coral is quite young (about fifteen years old). This site is not very deep but it is one of the richest areas of Tulamben: it is here that you can meet the most leaf fish, moray, reef fish, oriental gatrins, triggerfish, shrimps, crinoids, nudibranchs... Finally, this magnificent coral reef offers different varieties of clown fish hidden in the anemones (white, green, blue).
