Tulamben Bay, Bali, Indonesia.
Several resorts in Tulamben, Bali, Famous for the wall/drop off and the Liberty wreck.
Approx 2 to 2.5 hrs by road from Denpasar airport, there are several local restaurants in Tulamben and they are inexpensive. Mimpi resort is friendly and the diving from there is well organised and right on the beach.
The beach is made up of large and small pebbles which makes walking uncomfortable and over many day's, your feet can become sore. There are porters available who carry your equipment if you dive at the wreck or the drop off.
The sea can be flat calm, and also quite rough, entry and exit over some large rocks below the surface can make things difficult, when getting in and out watch for the waves.
The bay in front of Mimpi Resort is black sand and not a lot to look at unless you are into macro, if you are then the diving is very interesting and there are lots of different and new species of Nudibranch to be found.
