Bali has a very stunning nature, and waterfalls are something we always try to find and enjoy these wonders of the planet. Like most places Bali has a lot of different attractions, that is more a matter of money than nature and some of the waterfalls in Bali is all about getting the tourist to buy handicrafts and other souvenirs. But we have some advice for the traveler, who wants to see the Top 10 Waterfalls in Bali.
We start out with the best in our opinion – Sekumpul waterfalls, which is very much a challenge to reach. The valley where the 7 waterfalls are located, is a little remote, and the walk down and up the stairs is quite a workout.
Located almost 1 km over sea level, a big waterfall at the height of 50 meters is situated. Again it has over 500 steps that you need to pass on your way to the beauty of nature.
The natural waterslide. Aling-aling is a beautiful twin waterfall close to Singaraja, that is split at the two, which leaves two streams that fall at completely different speeds.
Would you like a pool so big that you can lounge in it? Then Tegenungan is your destination for a day tour. In lush green surroundings and with a heavy water flow, this waterfall is perfect for swimming and enjoying the fresh water.
This waterfall is located on Nusa Penida, so it is of the main island of Bali. And it is not the typical big vertical drop of a waterfall, but a collection of many small waterfalls, so called water fountains cascading out over the stones, which creates nature’s answer to a spa’s water massage. Nice right?
One of the more secret waterfalls is hidden away in the Tabanan region, out in the rainforest and for the coffee addicts (like us) you may even detect a faint fragrance of coffee in the air.
Known to be one of the best waterfalls in Bali, Jembong is something you should see. It is very rarely visited as it is very overshadowed by the famous Git Git falls, but offers unspoiled beauty, and the gentle slope and regular water flow makes it ideal for spiritual healing
Translated into “flying water” this is one of the tallest waterfalls in Bali and virtually untouched nestled in serene surroundings, and as it is far away from Kuta and Ubud, a visit would be quiet and relaxing.
Well known for the pools of fresh, nice water for swimming, is actually more freshwater springs rather than a waterfall, but very much worth the visit.
Honestly, Git Git is not something for us – too much a tourist trap and too little an attraction – but as the most known waterfall in Bali – it had to be on the list. You should visit it once, at least just to be able to compare it to the other fantastic waterfalls on the island. Be aware that Git Git is quite big, and there are several different places you can visit to see all the waterfalls.
