Diving : Explore one of the world’s best shipwreck dive sites

A 35 minute drive from Amed is Tulamben, which is home to the USAT Liberty (better known as USS Liberty) shipwreck. This is known as one of the world’s top dive sites. The best thing is, it’s even suitable for total beginners who are new to scuba diving.
After being torpedoed by a Japanese submarine during World War II, the remains of the US Army cargo ship originally lay on the beach. When Mount Agung erupted two decades later, the tremors caused the shipwreck to slip into the sea. As it is still in relatively shallow waters, it’s easily accessible by fun divers.
