We were very pleased with this land resort. It has free Nitrox; is nearest
the best dive site, the Liberty Wreck; & has regular trips by boat to
other places. 

They have a large beach front, two swimming pools, and all rooms have
views. The 2nd floor rooms have a deck with table and chairs and pillow
balcony. The 1st floor rooms have outside lounge chairs and convenient

Wireless internet is by a satellite connection. We were the only
Americans. 75% of the customers are German and the rest from Australia,
Japan, and England.

I love diving the Liberty Wreck. The fish are accustomed to divers and do
not swim away when we approach. I crept to within 3 feet of a giant
barracuda that was 6 feet long, who never moved an inch, as I approached. A
school of bump-head parrot fish swam very close by. 

There can be a lot of divers on the wreck. Early morning is best, like 7:30
or 8 am. We did 4 dives on the Liberty, and to me, each one was different.
One time we saw two two octopuses, and one was out swimming around. The
shore entrance to the wreck is small gravel that are no problem for
entrance in the water.

"Coral Garden" right in front of the dive shop has 8 inch rounded
stones to walk on, more tricky for walking. I got into 7 inches of water
then fell over on my side with the tank hitting first. Luckily, I was not
at all hurt. I had inflated my bc, which served as an "air bag."
It was a good dive. Saw a black-tip shark in just 24 feet of water, a green
and yellow scorpion leaf fish, orangutan crab, white freckled surgeon, two
orange ornate ghost pipefish, giant 2 foot snappers, and several humphead
wrasse. Not much coral, but a lot of fish.

Tulamben seems to have more different fish and larger fish than the area we
were diving previously on an expensive live- aboard for 11 days. Maybe
because Tulamben is near the deep trench between Lombok and Bali.
