Quick stopover for diner at the Bali Dive Resort, before heading north,
While some had a healthy dinner our captain of course enjoyed his Burger.
About Tulamben is a small fishing village on the north-east coast of Bali. It is among the most popular dive sites on Bali since the wreck of the Liberty, a US Army Transport ship torpedoed by a Japanese submarine in 1942 lies just off shore. During high-season, up to 100 divers descend to the wreck each day.[
Most of the best things to do in Tulamben are closely related to the beauty that lies beneath the waves. Most of this beauty can be discovered right off the coast of this fishing village in East Bali. Tulamben is popular among divers, first drawn here to see the WWII shipwreck that’s now overgrown with coral and teeming with marine life. Over the years more curios have been deliberately sunk to add to the variety. This is a great spot for underwater photography. You’ll be sure to capture some worthwhile shots and even catch a glimpse of a seldom seen species or two on your trip here. There’s also a decent number of options of things to do and see above the waves of Tulamben, despite the mostly barren overland terrain that records the lava paths of Mount Agung’s history of volcanic eruptions. These include the exotic pebbly and black sand beach of Tulamben itself, as well as a peculiar complex up on the hills, featuring a tree house and pyramid structure built by a local homeowner with a knack for architectural ingenuity.
