While I can't say much about the town itself (I daytripped here), the raison d'etre of this small place just north of the Amed Peninsula is easy to vouch for. Laying sunk just 50m offshore, the wreck of the US cargo ship Liberty sits in perhaps 15 meters of water, but rises up enough from the depths to make it easily snorkelable. The reef ecosystem that's risen up around the wreck, with colorful corals, nudibranches, and huge schools of fish, is spectacular; and if you're looking to dive the wreck, there's no shortage of shops around to assist you. Word of warning: it gets REAL crowded after 10am or so, so come early.
Relaxing dive with minimal current, Tulamben Wreck dive is definitely a place to be for divers visiting Bali. Our dive instructor was friendly and will always be aware of your whereabouts in the water. 30+ years of the wreck in the water also managed to harbour heaps of corals that suffered minimal damage and plenty of tropical marine life. Highly recommend!
One of the best under water to do snorkeling and diving in Bali. Located in east island of Bali, about two hours from Denpasar. Enjoy the paradise.
My favorite scuba dive destination in Bali - I never got bored going back to Tulamben for many reasons. Access to the sea is very easy, you can swim from the shore to the wreck, and typically the visibility is quite good too. Chances of seeing a barracuda (a residence near the wreck) are quite high. I also love the small, thin eels that popped their heads from the sandy bottom.
