Many visitors split their time over a number of destinations for a variety of experience. The northwest of the island is home to Secret Bay, Menjangan Island and Pemuteran.

On the eastern coast, you’ll find Tulamben, Amed, Candidasa and Padang Bai. Tulamben is home to the spectacular Liberty Wreck. There’s some top muck diving here and at nearby Seraya, too. Diving is from the shore, and you’ll enter over smooth volcanic rock that can be a bit tricky.
