Tulamben is a small fishing village in northeast Bali with a black volcanic beach, most famous for the easy access to a number of world-class dive sites with plenty of macro life.

Signature sites are the USS Liberty Wreck and Seraya Secrets where divers and snorkellers can spend hours ‘critter hunting’ with their cameras.

The Liberty wreck is a short swim from the shore. She was towed to the area having being torpedoed during WWll for salvage operations. The 1963 eruption of nearby Mt. Agung drove the ship into the water where she lies to this day at 30 metres, encrusted in corals and home to plenty of marine life. Divers seeking large pelagic encounters should head here in Oct-Nov for mola mola encounters as well as observing the resident bumphead parrotfish.

Seraya Secrets is home to an abundance of macro marine life including crabs, shrimp, frogfish, ghost pipefish, nudibranch and mimic octopus. It's an underwater photographer's heaven!

Other local sites included Drop Off and Batu Kelebit where divers will be amazed at the sight and size of the barrel sponges and seafans as well as the prolific amount of reef fish.
