Best Waterfall's in Bali

exploring bali’s majestic waterfalls

Bali is known for its lush, green landscape and beautiful beaches, but its majestic waterfalls are also a must-see! Most of Bali’s waterfalls are nestled in its gorgeous mountains and are swimmable. If you’re exploring the island for just a few days or immersing yourself in Balinese culture for longer, we highly recommend checking at least a few of these waterfalls off your bucket list.

GitGit Waterfall, Singaraja

  1. This is one of the most famous waterfalls in Bali, so prepare for it to get a bit crowded. Located in North Bali about 70km from Densapar and 10km outside Singaraja Town, GitGit is surrounded by lush foliage and consists of several waterfalls of varying heights and shapes. The most popular fall is about 300 meters above sea level and water flows all year round, though it’s clearer in the dry season. GitGit is the perfect waterfall for the wanderlust traveller, especially if you’re on your way to Lovina and are looking for a stunning view and way to cool off.

  2. Sekumpul Waterfalls Singaraja

    These seven narrow cascades are about an hour drive southeast of Lovina Beach. The falls are 80 meters tall and fall from two separate sources. It’s about a three-hour trek one way, including stepping through streams so if you don’t enjoy hiking, this may not be the waterfall for you. Surrounded by bamboo forests, Sekumpul is a wonderful way to get exercise, see gorgeous waterfalls and enjoy a swim surrounded by nature.

  3. NungNung Waterfall, Petang

    NungNung is a favorite among some travelers but so far not overcrowded by tourists. The waterfall is about 900 meters high and there is a pathway made up of around 500 concrete stairs. NungNung is gorgeous but one of the most powerful waterfalls in Bali, making it a bit more difficult to swim. If you’re brave, it is possible!

  10. Yeh Mampeh Waterfall, Singaraja

    Located in North Bali at Les Village, it takes about 2.5 to 3 hours driving from Denpasar. Yeh Mampeh Waterfall is rarely visited by tourists because the location is far from any of the most touristic places in Bali. The name means ‘flying water’ in Balinese local language and the falls are beloved by locals, who can often be found bathing in the water. Yeh Mampeh is perfect if you’re looking for a unique experience away from the tourists and typical Bali ‘must-do’s’.

  12. SingSing Waterfalls, Lovina

    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.
