Welcome to Tulamben

But if you don't plan to explore the briny waves, don't expect to hang out on the beach either. The shore is made up of rather beautiful, large washed stones – the kind that cost a fortune at a DIY store.

For nonaquatic delights, check out the morning market in Tulamben village, 1.5km north of the dive site.
