Beside Amed, another diver paradise is Tulamben (eastern part of Bali), which is about 45 minutes drive with our Honda CBR 250 from Amed. We went there just to know how the place looks like, and also to see Mimpi resort, one of the famous resort in Tulamben. Unlike Amed, the beach is rocky but still the view is beautiful.
We went to Mimpi resort, and we loved it. It offers fabolous facility to the divers. It has a direct access to the beach and also a drop off to the shipwreck. We didn't look at the rooms though, we just walked through their garden, their tiny pool, and the beach. Tulamben is famous for its colorful underwater world, we'll sure be back for our diving lesson next time.
On our way from Amed to Tulamben, we saw a panoramic view of Mount Agung, so lovely.
After visiting Mimpi Resort Tulamben, we went back to Legian. We really enjoy our touring this time as we saw great views on our way from Legian to Amed-Tulamben. We saw also rice fields, and this big sign of Tulamben as we were entering the area. Visited Amed and Tulamben made us realize that there are so many places in Bali categorized as "must visit" :)
