Tulamben Hotels and Accommodation

Tulamben is a small fishing village in northeast Bali. The area is quiet, hot and relatively undeveloped, but offers a number of black sand and polished stone beaches with clear turquoise water teeming with marine life. The area is peaceful and simple offering a good glimpse into traditional Balinese life. Tulamben is most well-known for a popular wreck dive just off the shore in this area.

The USAT Liberty was torpedoed by a Japanese submarine in WWII and intentionally stranded on the beach in Tulamben after taking on water. After a violent eruption of the Mount Agung volcano devastated much of east Bali in 1963, magma flow forced the Liberty ship back into the sea where it now lies at a depth of 3 to 29 meters. The area is slowly becoming more popular with travelers wanting to explore the less touristic areas of Bali. It will take approximately three hours to Tulamben from the international airport.
