What could possibly make snorkeling of the coast of a tropical paradise into the clear, sparking, sapphire waters of the Pacific even more fun? How about a whole shipwreck to explore? Bali Villa Rent gives an account of snorkeling amid the shipwreck remains. This is a historic site off the coast of Tulamben, on the north-east coast of the island of Bali.
The shipwreck is that of the U.S. Liberty, a United States aircraft carrier that was sunk during World War II, 1942. Today it rests a mere six meters underwater, easily accessible by divers, and has now partly merged with a corral reef. Scuttlebutt around the diving community says that October and November are the best times to dive the wreck, which is located a mere few minutes’ swim from shore.
