The best waterfalls in Bali
Bali is home to some of the most beautiful waterfalls in the world, and exploring them is a must-do activity for anyone visiting the island.
From the powerful and majestic Gitgit Waterfall to the serene and secluded Tegenungan Waterfall, Bali has a waterfall for everyone.
One of the most popular waterfalls in Bali is the Tegenungan Waterfall. Located in the village of Kemenuh, this waterfall is easily accessible and perfect for a day trip. The waterfall is surrounded by lush greenery and the water cascades down into a natural pool that’s perfect for swimming.
Another popular waterfall is the Gitgit Waterfall, located in the northern part of Bali. The waterfall is over 40 meters tall and surrounded by dense jungle and rice paddies. The hike to the waterfall is a bit challenging, but the stunning views and refreshing water make it well worth the effort.
For those looking for a more secluded experience, the Sekumpul Waterfall is a hidden gem located in the northern part of Bali. This waterfall is actually a series of seven waterfalls that are nestled in the jungle.
The hike to the waterfall is challenging, but the reward is breath taking views of the cascading waterfalls and the surrounding jungle.
Tibumana was the first waterfall I saw, there are some steps and a wooden bridge to get there but I loved to be surrounded by the jungle.
When I reached the waterfall you’re kind of amazed by the sheer volume of water cascading over the cliffs. You can swim in the pool near the waterfall if you want to. I don’t think it is too deep and the water is a blue green colour.
It was busy with many people getting photos and some people getting in the way, so it was snap snap quickly to get the best shot.
There was another smaller waterfall to the right of this waterfall which was quieter and still pretty good.
Taman Sari Waterfall
Taman Sari is a fantastic sight, with a large waterfall pouring down and creating smaller collections of waterfalls beneath that spread and flow down naturally over the rocks.
This is an excellent opportunity to swim on a hot day, cool off and relax in the waterfall pool. A pool on the top ledge can be reached if you go back up the stairs and turn left.
Kanto Lampo Waterfall was busy but offer some amazing opportunities for Instagram worthy photographs. Although there were people there it wasn’t as busy as some of the more popular waterfalls mentioned above. See pictures below!
With the Kanto Lampo Waterfall there was about a 30 to 45 minute queue to get the best angle of the waterfall but I didnt wait. I wish I did now but there will be other opportunities. I would recommend to get up early and head to the waterfall of your choice in the early morning.
You can opt to get a guided tour which can take you around in a car or alternatively hire a scooter with a phone holder so you can get navigate your way round on Google maps to each waterfall easily.
No matter which waterfall you choose to visit, you’ll be sure to experience the natural beauty and serenity that Bali has to offer. So grab your hiking shoes and camera and get ready to explore the best waterfalls in Bali!
