Located on the Northeast of Bali, Tulamben is aimed squarely at scuba divers and snorkellers due to its proximity to excellent dive sites.

Not the easiest place to get to it is advised that you hire a driver to take you there rather than trying to get there yourself.


Beach – Don’t expect golden or white sand beaches here as you will find black volcanic stone beaches instead.

The seas are generally calm however and perfect for swimming and snorkelling from the beach.

Accommodation – There are a number of hotels, mostly mid-range and generally aimed at divers and their families.

Nightlife – Only a few bars, a few with live bands, mean that your evening experience will be more relaxed than at some resorts on the south of Bali.

Food – There are a number of restaurants available in the area offering a mix of local and western food.

Things To Do

An excellent base for scuba diving and snorkelling with many dive sites ion the local area.

Important local dive sites include the wrecks of the USS Liberty and the Japanese shipwreck in Lipah. The dive site of Jemeluk is also nearby offering some incredible marine life.
