The USS Liberty Wreck is the most famous dive site in Bali. It is also one of the best sunken ship wrecks in the world! If you come to Bali, you absolutely have to dive there The liberty ship was hit by a Japanese torpedo then was beached near Tulamben. In 1963, the eruption of Mount Agung caused the vessel to slip off the beach, and it now lies on a sand slope in 9 to 30 m of water.The wreck is about 130 m long with the shallowest part at about 5 m deep and the deepest on the other side of the wreck at about 30 m deep.

I was slightly anxious about diving a wreck and worried about potential claustrophobia, but this was an amazing dive with plenty of open space around the carcass of the ship so you could choose to stay in the more open areas or even around the outside. The wreck was only a hundred meters from shore and seemed like a good... More

My son and I did night and morning dives. Quite a lot of life on the wreck and the dive guide pointed out some interesting things for photograph. We saw some huge Bump-head Parrot Fish. A bit crowded and too much debris floating in the water.

Easily accessible by the shore. This wreck is a perfect place to dive. There are dozens of companies to choose from. I recommend dive concepts which is just across the street from the shore.

We dived there and enjoyed it. The wreck is closed to the shore so easy to access, and not to deep so snorkelers or beginners can dive around. BUT it can become quite crowded. We went there at low season and I can't imagine during high season :-/ Try and come early !

This is a good wreck for beginners, but there isn't as much coral growth on it as the reviews would suggest. It was really crowded when we went in the day time and during the night dive. I was definitely disappointed our dive company had us do 3 dives here.

We had only snorkles and we didn't know the exact place so we asked someone at the beach which way to swim. It is not far from the beach. There is some current but nothing you couldn't handle if you just can swim. It was a very special sight when the wrek appeared in the middle of darkness. Quite a... More

The wreck of the USS Liberty was an amazing experience, especially if you've never dived a wreck. It's super easy for beginners and also snorkeling. The site is about 18m to 30m deep, great visibility. The only downside is, that it can get a bit busy.
