This tiny island is a 30 minutes drive from Pemuteran, and then a thirty minute boat trip from the mainland. As part of Bali Barat National Park, Menjangan Island is well known for its magnificent underwater world. A beautiful coral bottom and a spectacular deep water coral reef wall provide a variety of dive sites to choose from. Good conditions and excellent visibility also make this an interesting site for snorkeling or simply relaxing on the white sandy beaches
Tulamben Ship wreck
Originally a World War I cargo vessel, the U.S.S. Liberty was built in 1918. She measured 120 meters long by 20 meters wide and grossed over 6000 tons. During World War II, she was refitted as a US Army Transport vessel and on the 11th of January 1942, she was hit by two torpedoes from a Japanese submarine as she crossed the Lombok Strait. An attempt was made to tow her to port at Singaraja, but she floundered and was beached at Tulamben. After the volcanic eruption of Mount Agung in 1963, the USS Liberty was pushed off the beach and into the sea. Today she resides about 40 meters off Tulamben Beach on the east coast of Bali – about one hour and forty five minutes east of Lovina. The wreck is noted as one of Bali’s most famous dives and is also an incredible place to go for a night dive. This is a shore dive with depths of 6 a 28 meters and water temperatures of 27 – 30 degree centigrade. On any given day you can see hundreds of species of marine life. A lone barracuda who likes to pose for pictures, pigmy seahorses hiding in colorful sea fans, giant grouper, batfish, angelfish, and parrotfish, are just a few of the incredible sea creatures you will encounter while exploring the wreck.
Lovina’s reefs are perfect for those who wish to stay local. There are both deep and shallow water diving sites available, making it convenient for all levels of expertise. It is a great way to get in some diving, without taking time out of your day to get to the dive site.
