Tulamben Beach (Karangasem)


Karangasem presents a very charming tourist spot. One of them is the famous Tulamben beach with clean blue sea. The favorite spot for snorkeling and diving at Tulamben Beach was the wreck of the USAT Liberty warship that was owned by America that was destroyed by Japan in World War 2. This ship was a large logistical transport ship for American troops in Indonesia at that time.

The 120-meter long ship shot by the Japanese had been stranded on the beach. At first there was an attempt to rescue the ship, but because there was a lot of damage and leakage on the part of the ship, so it was left on the beach.

This ship shifted from its place at the time of the eruption of Mount Agung in 1963 to get to where it is today.
It is recommended to dive in the morning and not later than 11 because in the morning the visibility in the water can reach 30 meters.

This beach with amazing underwater scenery is located in Tulamben Village and is close to Amed Beach. This beach is included in the administrative area of ​​Kubu District, Karangasem Regency, Bali Province.
