Tulamben Bali is a 20 minutes drive from Amed and offers Bali’s most famous dive site the Tulamben Ship Wreck. Right in front of the beach rests the 120m long shipwreck of a US Liberty with the deck facing the seaside. Anchored off the coast of Lombok, the ship was hit by a Javanese torpedo during World War II. As far as we know, nobody got hurt, but the ship was damaged badly. The American Navy’s plan to tow the ship to Singaraja harbor (northern Bali) failed as the harbor was completely occupied, so the ship was intentionally stranded on the rocky beach of Tulamben, where it was unloaded.
In 1963 Mt. Agung (Bali’s highest volcano) erupted and the magma flow pressed the ship back into the sea where it presently rests at a depth of 3 to 29 meters. Since then, coral has covered the wreckage completely and turned it into a home for many species of fish and the most famous dive site in Bali. From time to time, a Napoleon fish or a huge barracuda drops by. You may dive or snorkel this wreck comfortably, accessing it directly from the beach. A night dive is a highly recommendable option as well. This most famous dive site is a must for every diver and is therefore highly frequented.
