Tulamben Map Bali , plongée à  Tulamben


It is a seaside village in north east Bali about 2 hours drive from Sanur. The landscape is arid and its beach consists of pebbles 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.

Pour se rendre à Tulamben, nous traverserrons, les villages balinais, les rizières et nous longerons le bord de mer de temps en temps. Arrivée sur les sites de plongée nous nous installerons pour partir plonger. Entre les 2 plongées nous prendrons place dans un restaurant partenaire pour le déjeuner. La 2eme plongée aura lieu sur un site différent du 1er 


uss lIBERTY wreck

26 to 30°C



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!
