The big attraction here sunk over 60 years ago. The wreck of the US cargo ship Liberty is among the best and most popular dive sites in Bali and this has given rise to an entire town based on scuba diving. Even snorkellers can easily swim out and enjoy the wreck and the coral.
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.
