Here are some facts about Tulamben that I have quoted from The Jakarta Post :
On Jan. 11, 1942, an American ship USAT Liberty was struck by a Japanese torpedo. Then an American destroyer USS Paul Jones towed it to the shore of a small village of Tulamben to unload its cargo and supplies. The Liberty remained in Tulamben partially submerged in water.
Then in 1963, Mount Agung erupted and the lava and earthquakes pushed the ship further down into the water, where it rests on the ocean floor parallel to the shoreline.

A day trip from south of Bali to Tulamben costs €72 (US$105) including equipment, two guided dives, lunch and drinks, return transfer and insurance. Trips from other places like Kuta, Legian, Jimbaran, etc. can also be arranged at an extra cost.Marine life: Large varieties of tropical fish charm divers in Tulamben Bay, one of Bali’s main dive sites. Given the number of visitors to the bay, protection of marine life is critical.
For those who wants a scuba diving certificate (SSI & PADI), there are diving schools that offer three leisurely days of classes from beginner courses to professional diving.
Besides, tourists can enjoy spa services and scenic spaces. The black stone beaches might not be ideal for beach-bound sunbathers, but the resort pools and decks all are very good.
