20 Beautiful Waterfalls In Bali For Your Vacation Itineraries

The waterfalls in Bali are famous tourist attractions and while many are accessible, easily found with well-built pathways and steps. 

While others might take some planning and are more difficult to access. 

Some of the waterfalls are quite close to the tourist enclaves of Seminyak and Kuta, like Tegenungan

The more spectacular ones like Aling-Aling and Gitgit are in Northern Bali close to Singaraja, and it’s quite a long journey if you’re starting your tour from Southern Bali.

So let’s start chasing waterfall!

PS; you can also see the beautiful destinations in ASIA that looks like The Maldives.

Waterfalls In South Bali

Some of the best waterfalls in Bali are quite close to the southern tourist destinations of Canggu, Seminyak, Legian, Kuta, Sanur, Nusa Dua and Uluwatu.

Tegenungan Waterfall

Tegenungan is the largest waterfall by size and the closest to the tourist enclaves in the south of the island, including Seminyak, Legian, Kuta and Sanur.

To get to Tegenungan Waterfall, it is a drive from Denpasar to the Tegenungan Kemenuh village, in Gianyar.

The drive is just 16 km or about 30 minutes. You need to walk around 15 mins down a series of steps to get to the river and then walk along the river bank to the foot of the falls.

Tegenungan Waterfall is a waterfall in Bali, Indonesia. It is located at the Tegenungan Kemenuh village, in Gianyar, North from the capital Denpasar and close to the artist village of Ubud. The waterfall is isolated but has become a popular tourist attraction

Tukad Cepung Waterfall

Tukad Cepung is quite unique among the waterfalls in Bali.

It’s made by water running down the cliffs, rather than flowing into rivers or streams.

You need to walk down the stairs and approach from the bottom to get the amazing view of looking up at the waterfall with the skyline in the background.

With the rise of Instagram growing numbers of tourists have been crowding to this beautiful waterfall and the way the sunlight beams down through the clifftop.

Tukad Cepung Waterfall (often called Cepung by the Balinese) is one of the most photogenic of all the waterfalls in Bali. Tukad mean river in Balinese languange, and Cepung mean flow, so 'Tukad Cepung Waterfall' means the Cepung River-flow. Tukad Cepung Waterfall has mesmerized everyone who have managed to spot it.

Tibumana Waterfall

Tibumana has only recently become popular, with the locals from Apuan village in the Susut Bangli district improving conditions to attract more tourism.

The access road is reasonably well sign-posted and passes through some beautiful rice fields. 

The waterfall is around 20m in height and falls into a protected, shallow pool.

Expect a single waterfall that flows over a small hand-built rocky watercourse that ensures an even water flow and very photogenic waterfall.

Don’t be disappointed if the water is a dusky brown colour because most waterfalls on the south and east Bali are usually brown, especially during the onset of the wet season.

The brilliant blue water you see on Instagram is probably edited.

Tibumana Waterfall Bali is one of the most beautiful hidden waterfalls near Ubud. Luckily, only a few people know about it. It’s getting harder and harder to find secluded places in Bali since tourism is on the rise.

Kanto Lampo Waterfall

Local legend has it that Kanto Lampo waterfall only started flowing since a prayer ceremony in 2015.

It’s been a blessing for the local village as it provides some income from tourism.

This small but beautiful waterfall in the village of Beng in the Gianyar regency features multi-tiered cascades that flow down a series of stepping boulders.

Expect to pay between IDR50-100k for the assistance, and if you are unsure of your footing but still want to try I recommend using a guide for help.

It’s only a small fee and could help avoid a nasty fall on the slippery rocks.

Kanto Lampo Waterfall referred to by locals as Air Terjun Kanto Lampo. This is a hidden gem in Bali where you can soak in the pristine water, and take pictures on the insta-famous rock.

Goa Rang Reng Waterfall

Located on Banjar Gitgit in Bakbakan Village, Goa Rang Reng is a flat, rocky waterfall with a nearby cave that is used by Balinese Hindus for a spiritual cleansing ritual. 

Goa Rang Reng Gianyar Waterfall is not as popular as other waterfalls, but its beauty is very enchanting. Goa Rang Reng translates to “multicolored cave” and here at the confluence of Bangun lemah and Betiting Rivers, an ancient cave mixes the waters spilling them in a wide and gentle cascade to become the Cangkir River.

Suwat Waterfall

Suwat Waterfall is a relatively recently developed attraction, at least from a tourism viewpoint.

The local village of Suwat made a path to the waterfall and landscaped the top to make the falls look aesthetically pleasant in order to promote tourism to the area.

Suwat Waterfall is around a 5-minute walk from the roadside with a few stairs along the way.

Waterfalls In North Bali

The waterfalls of North Bali are taller and generally more magnificent than those in the south. 

Aling-Aling Waterfall

If you’re looking for adventure in Bali, you can’t do better than taking a day tour to the famous Aling-Aling Waterfall in Northern Bali.

Aling-Aling Waterfall is unique. 

The Aling-Aling waterfall has height approximately 35 meters above the ground and has its own uniqueness where from the top of the waterfall, it is divided into 2 side-by-side waterfalls. The waterfall on the right has a bigger discharge than the right one. The Aling-Aling waterfall is falling from a steep cliff surrounded by lush trees. The water discharge made a basin pond with the depth of 4 meters below that usually used by the tourists to swim or just play water and enjoy the fresh water from Aling-Aling waterfall. Not far away from the Aling-Aling waterfall, you can see several smaller waterfalls which are Pucuk waterfall, Twin waterfall, Camera waterfall, Canging waterfall, Dedari waterfall, and Kroya waterfall.

There is no swimming in the actual Aling-Aling waterfall itself, as it’s a holy place for the local Balinese.

However, the big attraction is the canyoning, waterslides and cliff jumping in several falls – the Kembar, Kroya, and Pucuk waterfalls. 

It’s a truly awesome experience but you must hire one of the local guides from the carpark at the top of the entrance to guide you safely.

The other advantage of hiring a local guide is they can take photos of you for some great action shots on Instagram!

Like all of Bali’s waterfalls, Aling-Aling is at its most photogenic during the wet season (December to March), when the water flow is at its peak.

To get to Aling-Aling Waterfall, drive to the village of Sambangan, where there are road signs leading to the carpark. 

The Aling-Aling waterfall has height approximately 35 meters above the ground and has its own uniqueness where from the top of the waterfall, it is divided into 2 side-by-side waterfalls. The waterfall on the right has a bigger discharge than the right one. The Aling-Aling waterfall is falling from a steep cliff surrounded by lush trees.

Gitgit Waterfall

Easily accessible by road, Gitgit Waterfall is one of the most popular in Bali.

It’s around 35m high surrounded by lush jungle.

Home to a local troop of monkeys, you might see some of them drinking downstream or in the trees around the falls.

It’s important to get there as early as possible because even though it is a long way, it’s becoming increasingly popular especially in the afternoons. 

Gitgit Waterfall is a waterfall on Bali, Indonesia. It is located on the north of the Southeast Asian island between the old island capital of Singaraja and the inland village of Munduk.

Sekumpul Waterfall

One of the most inspiring natural wonders in Bali, Sekumpul Waterfall isn’t easy to get to, but it is definitely worth the trip.

It’s busiest between midday and 2 pm, so if you’re making it a stop on a day tour I advise going straight there when the traffic is lightest and before the crowds arrive. 

Make sure you have proper walking shoes because the track is quite steep in places and the rocks can be very slippery.

Take your time, you do not want to sprain an ankle this far away from medical services.

Sekumpul Waterfall locally known as Air Terjun Sekumpul, is arguably Bali’s most spectacular cascades with a collection of 7 tall, misty waterfalls in one area.

The seven waterfalls each has its own beauty, form, and height that look extraordinary and makes these waterfalls as the most gorgeous waterfall in Bali island.

Nungnung Waterfall

Nungnung Waterfall is located 900 meters above sea level in a small village in the middle of nowhere.

The views are breathtaking and well worth the effort to see the 50m falls plunging into the pool.

Bali, one of the most popular tourist destination nowadays, has some of the most amazing beaches and spectacular waterfalls. Most of the attractions, honestly, are packed with tourists, leaving some of the natural wonders to be less enjoyable.

Banyumala Twin Waterfalls

It is located to the north of Lake Buyan on the crater rim road between Munduk and the main highway from Singaraja to Denpasar.

This means you also pass right by the swings at Hidden Hills Wanagiri, so stop to visit these on your return from the falls.

It’s also not far from Golden Valley Waterfall as well if you feel like visiting more than once in the same area.

It’s not easy to find, so be on the look-out for a faded sign directing you down a small village road that will take you 3km to the carpark.

I advise not to take your scooter all the way to the end of the road leading to the track as it’s a bit rough.

Park where the cars are and walk the last 10m.

ATAStip: There is a small warung and some toilets with changing facilities next to the carpark. 

The trail leading to the falls from the carpark is all-natural, as opposed to the concrete steps and pathways found at the more popular waterfalls.

It will take about 20 minutes, but be careful as the natural steps can get very slippery if it has been raining, especially in the wet season between November and March.

The water is very clean, being fed from a natural spring further upstream and the swimming in the natural pool at the bottom is excellent.

If you get there between 7-10 am it is very likely there will not be many, if any, people around. 

Banyumala twin waterfall is one of the most beautiful waterfalls in Bali, Indonesia. Despite its incredible natural beauty, Banyumala waterfall doesn’t yet have the crowds associated with visiting Gitgit waterfall. Although it’s not a secret waterfall in Bali, if you’re lucky you will have the whole place to yourself as so few tourists make the effort to visit

Leke Leke Waterfall

Leke Leke Waterfall makes a great stop either to or from a tour to Danu Beretan and the other attractions in the Bedugul area.

Its a pleasant 15-minute walk through the jungle on well-maintained tracks and bamboo bridges crossing the river. It’s also quite close to Secret Garden Village.

The best time for photography is between 12-1 pm when the sun is the brightest.

The Leke Leke Waterfall is located in the Tabanan Regency which is located North of the cities of Canggu and Ubud. From both cities it is approximately a one hour ride and is therefore best done as part of a day trip to the North in combination with some of the other sights such as the Pengempu Waterfall or Pura Ulun Danu Bratan. The road to the Leke Leke Waterfall will pass through a combination of busy streets and lush empty roads with views over green rice fields. To get a better idea where the Leke Leke Waterfall is exactly located compared to these two cities check out the map below.

Bhuana Sari Waterfall

Bhuana Sari is actually the second in a series of waterfalls beginning with Banyu Wana Amertha Waterfall.

While both a stunningly beautiful, the 20-minute trek is worth it to see Bhuana Sari.

In the far North of Bali there are many waterfalls, from exploring the Sekumpul Waterfall, to the Banyumala Twin Waterfalls, the North of Bali seems to be home to the most beautiful waterfalls of them all. But there is one waterfall that is barely known to the many travelers of North Bali: The Banyu Wana Amertha Waterfall. Now, even though the Banyu Wana Amertha Waterfall is a stunning waterfall, the best secret lies in the fact that your entry ticket does not only provide access to one waterfall, not two, but three waterfalls, and should you be visiting in the rain season, it could be as many as four.

Pengempu Waterfall

From Denpasar, head over to Sangeh, then turn left at the T-Junction and continue driving through the bridge.

Then turn right to Cau Belayu and just follow the signs that lead to the Waterfall parking lot.

Located in the Tabangan regency in Bali, Pengempu Waterfall is often overlooked in favour of the more popular Tegenungan waterfall, and its appeal lies in exactly this. Its relatively small stature belies the charm that it oozes, and is set amidst verdant and virgin jungle. A little difficult to find, this waterfall tests those true travellers that seek out falls that are truly untouched by development.

Munduk Waterfall

Located on the same access road and close by to Golden Valley Waterfall, and only 10km from Banyumala Waterfall, Air Terjun Munduk is relatively accessible down a short trail around 50m from the carpark.

It isn’t that difficult and the trail is well maintained so it’s quite accessible for most people.

It’s a good height waterfall with a small pool at the bottom for swimming.

It’s busiest in the afternoon, with very few tourists in the morning.

Munduk Waterfalls locally known as Air Terjun Munduk are among Bali’s most scenic, located within Bali’s lush and forested central-northern highland region in the village of Munduk in Buleleng, North Bali.

Blemantung Waterfall

To visit Blemantung Waterfall, drive around 75 kilometres, or approximately 2 hours, from Denpasar to the Pujungan village in the district of Pupuan.

From the village, the way to the waterfall is well signed, and the walk from the parking area is just 200 metres.

Waterfall located in the village Blemantung Pujungan, District Pupuan, Tabanan. The distance is about 70 km from Denpasar or approximately a two hour drive. Access road to Falls Village Blemantung good enough because Pujungan skipped Highway Denpasar - Seririt - Singaraja. The journey to the waterfall is very refreshing eye because along the way (especially after passing the junction Antosari village, Tabanan), your eyes will be spoiled views of terraced rice fields green and beautiful.

Location: Pujungan, Pupuan, Tabanan Regency

Campuhan Waterfall

Goa Giri Campuhan Waterfall is the best place to see waterfalls with beautiful scenery with the same river with Krisik waterfall, you can visit 2 waterfall If you visit this place. To get waterfall you have to walk about 500 meters, passing through a beautiful expanse of rice fields with the background of Gunung Agung Peak. Then passing through a tunnel leads down with a 30 metre long staircase, this will be a special little adventure. Beautiful view 3 waterfalls with a clean water stream you will see if you have reached the waterfall.

Jembong Waterfall

Jembong is near Singaraja and is situated smack in between Aling-Aling, Gitgit, Colek Pamor, Banyumala waterfalls.

It’s around 17km from GitiGit Waterfall.

Jembong waterfall is a lovely, man-made waterfall in North Bali. Although it may not be impressive as the colossal Sekumpul waterfall, it is still beautiful in its own right. We consider it one of the more secret waterfalls in Bali, as many locals are unaware of its existence and few foreigners choose to visit. Surrounded by cocoa plantations, the lack of visitors makes it a wonderfully peaceful spot to enjoy

Yeh Mampeh Waterfall

Located in the village of Les in the north-western side of Bali, it’s roughly half-way between Singaraja to the west and Amed to the east.

If you are travelling between Singaraja and Amed then put this waterfall on your list.

There’s no pool at the foot of the falls but it’s refreshing standing underneath it.

The water’s cool, which would be great after the generally continual heat of Bali.

You’ll need shoes or sandals, as while the path is usually quite well maintained, it can get broken up after the frequent heavy rains experienced in this area.

Yeh Mampeh Waterfall is hiddenly situated in a village called Les in the northern part of Bali, Buleleng Regency, Tejakula District. It takes 2.5 to 3 hours driving from Denpasar and 1.5 hours from Kintamani. Not many tourists have visited this waterfall because of its remote location. The height of Yeh Mampeh Waterfall is approximately 30 meters. Its water is usually clean.

Peguyangan Waterfall, Nusa Penida

Peguyangan Waterfall, on the island of Nusa Penida, can be quite tricky to find.

Even many of the locals don’t know how to get there.

Your best bet is to arrange a tour with a local tour operator on Nusa Penida.

Getting there means descending 460 steps down a narrow staircase built against the side of the ravine.

This is clearly not for the faint-hearted.

The waterfall isn’t like the rivers found in the jungles on Bali.

The place is called Guyangan Waterfall or Peguyangan Waterfall on Google Map. It is one of the very beautiful places of Nusa Penida. But if you are expecting a cascade of water falling from the cliff you will be disappointed. The only small waterfall you will see is the overflow pipe of the small water tank in which the pumps come to draw the spring water that will be distributed on Nusa Penida island.

Peguyangan is made up of a series of short, cascading spring fountains that make their way over several steep ravines before discharging into the ocean.

But the effort is worth it to be able to bathe in the springs overlooking the ocean.
