SingSing Waterfall, Lovina

SingSing Waterfalls, Lovina, Air Terjun Bali
Sing your heart out when you visit Bali’s most romantic waterfall, SingSing Waterfall.

This waterfall is not very high or large but it feels like a sanctuary with bird and nature sounds as soothing background noise.

We highly recommend a soak in the rocky pool at the bottom of the falls or in one of the lava stone pools in the upper creek.

You should make SingSing a priority during the wet season (October to April) as the water flow is very light during the dry season.

Our Favorite – Tukad Cepung Bali Waterfall, Tembuku

Tukad Cepung Waterfall, Timbuktu, Air Terjun Bali
Tukad Cepung Waterfall is known for its Ray of Light from heaven. Make sure not to miss it.

This waterfall is located 1 hour from Seminyak, 1 hour from Kuta, and 30 minutes from Ubud so it is well-situated for tourists staying all over.

There is about a 20-minute trek down to the falls, passing a few small streams on the way down.

The best time to visit is around 11 am to 1 pm because sunlight enters into the cave where the waterfall flows from and it makes for great photos!

Bali – Munduk Waterfalls

The Munduk waterfalls are, in fact, a trek that takes you along four spectacular water cascades. We particularly enjoyed these waterfalls because they combine a hiking route with four waterfall visits.

The fact that they are located along a hiking path and not so close to a road means that you will encounter fewer tourists than in other waterfalls or Instagram spots of Bali. Actually, there is a good chance you will find the waterfalls all to yourself!

The whole trek can take between 3 and 5 hours, depending on where you start and how long you take to enjoy the waterfalls. Most of the journey is on a paved path or proper stairs, and only some steep segments represent a bit of difficulty.

Here are, from bottom to top, the Munduk Waterfalls:

Air Terjun Melanting Waterfall

There are almost 500 steps to get to the waterfall. You don’t have to worry about safety on the stairs, but they can be a little steep. It’s not a good idea to swim at Melanting, though. It does have a waterfall pool, but since the falls are so powerful, there is a lot of water spray, and swimming wouldn’t be enjoyable.

Location: Jalan Air Terjun Melanting No.Desa, Gobleg, Kec. Banjar, Kabupaten Buleleng, Bali 81152, Indonesia
The fee to get in is 10,000 IDR – GOOGLE MAP

Labuhan Kebo Waterfall

Labuhan Kebo Waterfall is quite impressive and sprays a lot, so be careful with your camera. It has a big pool at the base of the waterfall that is great for taking pictures and flows into two even bigger rock pools. This is the best waterfall on the Munduk Waterfall trek to go swimming. The two rock pools are very shallow, but you can wade in them.

Location: Banyuatis, Kec. Banjar, Kabupaten Buleleng, Bali 81152
The fee to get in is 10,000 IDR – GOOGLE MAP

Red Coral in Munduk Waterfall

This waterfall is also called the Munduk Waterfall because it is easy to get to if you are on a road trip and want to stop by a waterfall quickly. It takes no more than 10 minutes to reach the waterfall. You can swim there because the water crashes on a flat area of small pebbles.

Golden Valley Waterfall

The Golden Valley Waterfall is about 50 feet high, the pool below is shallow enough to walk, and it looks great in pictures.

Beautiful stairways of water are a treat when you visit Air Terjun Kanto Lampo Waterfall.

It’s a tourist favorite, so it’s best to go in the morning to avoid the crowds, we went at noon during Covid, and there were about ten people; at that time, the sun was hitting the waterfall directly.

After walking down the stairs, you go down to the river through the rocks, and you will see the beauty of Kanto Lampo Waterfall, adorned with beautiful rock cliffs.
