You have come here to find the best waterfalls of Bali Indonesia, and that is what you will find. Truthfully, there are hundreds, if not thousands of waterfalls in Bali. Some of them are truly off the grid, and some of them have easy access. We stumbled upon a video that was created by Bali Go Live, which is essentially a tourism guide website and YouTube channel to help people navigate the country of Indonesia. In this case, they helped us find Bali’s best waterfalls. If you scroll down to the bottom of the page, you will find their video of the best waterfalls of Bali.
1. Sekumpul Waterfall
Located in North Bali, Sekumpul Waterfall is approximately a 2.5 hour drive from Kuta. Sure, it is out of the way, but that is what makes this waterfall so great. You can escape the tourist crowds that would surely crowd this place if it were closer to Bali. Be sure to take your time here. There are many different views that you can see of the waterfall. You can see it from the top fairly easily, but take some time to hike down to the bottom and really take in how large and powerful this waterfall really is.
2. GitGit Twin Waterfalls
Another waterfall located 2.5 hours away from Kuta. I think we are starting to see a trend here. The farther you get away from Kuta, the more lush the tropical foliage becomes, and the more exciting the adventure is. GitGit is known for it’s emerald green water and it’s foot bridge that is aesthetically draped across part of the river. This waterfall is very easy to access, but can get busy at times. Be sure to check out the best times to go before you head out on your adventure. You could have this beautiful waterfall to yourself if you are willing to put in the work.
3. Aling Aling Waterfall
Another North Bali treasure, and another road trip that is 2.5 hours away from Kuta. If you are not renting a scooter or a car, there are many tours that go to these waterfalls in North Bali. With that being said, we think having your own transportation is the best method for flexibility and beating the crowd. Yes, the waterfall is beautiful, and there is even a natural waterslide. Unfortunately, we have heard about some tourists being taken advantage of by being charged the equivalent of $7 USD just for visiting the place. Last time we checked, the entrance fee was around $1 USD. I guess there is sometimes a bad apple in the bunch that wants to price gouge you, so be aware of that.
4. Tegenungan Waterfall
The closest waterfall to Kuta and the more populated areas of Bali, but more crowded because of that. This waterfall is only 1 hour from Kuta, and will impress you with its power. The best time to go here is in the dry season. After it rains, you will find really murky or dirty water running through the waterfall. The incessant tours and tourists coming through here make this place a little bit crowded for our taste, but if you show up early, you won’t have an issue.
