Fantastic diversity of marine life. Tulamben is now one of the most famous diving areas in Bali and attracts divers from all over the world. It is Tulamben bay which just like the rest of Bali, is situated in the world’s richest marine biogeographic zone with more than 2500 different species of fish and 700 corals. Situated on the north east coast, the bay receives very plankton rich water from the major ocean current that moves from the Pacific to the Indian Ocean or vice versa. The wreck, rocky wall and sand slopes provide a wide variety of physical habitats. All of these factors, combined together will explain why the Tulamben bay contains an incredible diversification of the underwater ecosystem.
