Diving in Tulamben

Explore diving in Tulamben

Coupled with the fact that the three main dive sites provide totally different physical environments, this means that Tulamben Bay contains a stunningly diverse underwater ecosystem.

The beach is fist-sized black volcanic rocks that become sand in the shallows. This black sand does not provide the reflective properties of white limestone sand and combined with the amount of plankton in the water accounts for the relatively low visibility (12-25m). It does, however, provide a dramatic contrast, which brings out the colours of the corals, gorgonians, fish and other marine life. The hundreds of macro-species that live here both blend and contrast beautifully with the sand.

Tulamben Bay is a wonderful place to learn to dive and to learn about underwater life

When to dive in Tulamben

 Tulamben Bay, like the rest of Bali, is situated in the richest marine biogeographic zone in the world. Being on the north-east coast, the bay receives very plankton-rich waters from the major ocean current that moves from the Pacific to the Indian Ocean. 

Perfect for diving all year long. 

However, during the rain season, one must be careful as currents and visibility can affect the conditions of the site.
