One of our favourite things to do on in Bali is chase the Bali Waterfalls. So we’ve put together this guide covering all the best waterfalls in Bali.
North Bali Waterfalls
1. Sekumpul Waterfall
When you think of Bali, you think waterfalls. And when you think of Bali waterfalls, you think Sekumpul.
Sekumpful Waterfall is located towards the North of Bali, close to the Bedugul area. And for us due to it’s sheer height and force, is one of the most beautiful and best waterfalls in Bali.
If you’re looking for an unbelievable swim or a hike with a view this is your spot.
2. Aling Aling + Kroya Waterfalls
Although Aling Aling Waterfall is the famous name you hear. It’s actually Kroya Waterfall that gains all the attention nowadays!
Located within the same grounds, Aling Aling Waterfall is a natural wonder and possibly one of the most powerful waterfalls we’ve ever seen. Where as it’s little brother Kroya is an adventure seekers heaven. From cliff jumps to rock slides there’s plenty of fun for everyone.
If you’re looking to backflip off some cliff jumps this is your spot.
3. Gitgit Waterfall
Gitgit Waterfall is definitely a Northern Bali special. It’s ranked as one of the best Bali waterfalls by tourists as well as locals and so it should be.
The waterfall is located in complete jungle paradise and a perfect place to chill in seclusion.
If you’re looking for true Bali paradise this is your spot.
4. Munduk Waterfall
Munduk Waterfall is one of the more lesser known waterfalls in Bali.
Operated by a couple of locals, Munduk Waterfall is not super popular with tourists, meaning you’ll likely have the whole area to yourself. There is also a toilet and changing area near the entrance.
Either take a picnic and relax, or jump in for a splash, before heading over to the impressive Banyumala Twin Waterfall.
5. Banyumala Twin Waterfall
Banyumala Twin Falls are becoming quite the hit in the North.
With other popular spots such as Gitgit and Sekumpul just a short drive up, Banyumala is an ideal starting point for those staying in Munduk.
A slightly difficult trek down, through DIY bamboo trails, it’s certainly worth the effort when you reach the foot of the falls.
Two epic waterfalls separated only by the rocks holding them together, and a huge swimming hole at the bottom. There’s plenty of space for all visitors to enjoy a swim in the crystal clear waters, and it’s ideal for jumping in and freshening off after the trek down.
Central Bali Waterfalls
6. Nungnung Waterfall
Nungnung Waterfall is rated as one of the best waterfalls in Bali, and it definitely lives up to it’s name.
It’s located high in the mountains of Bali, making the air cooler and the scenic drives through the palm tree roads beautiful.
If you’re looking for a trek worthy of a reward this is your spot.
7. Leke Leke Waterfall
We first spotted signs to Leke Leke Waterfall on the way up North towards Bedugul.
So on the way home we decided to pull in and check out one of the lesser known Bali waterfalls. Air Terjun Leke Leke, as it’s known by the locals, surprised us with its beautiful grounds and almost private, secluded waterfall.
If you’re looking for something a little off the beaten track then this is your spot.
8. Tegenungan Waterfall
If you’re looking to explore some of the best Bali waterfalls then Tegenungan has to be on the list.
Located within driving distance from Ubud, Tegenungan is a touristy waterfall for a reason.
If you’re looking for a family friendly visit then this is your spot.

With an easy walk down and a beautiful swimming spot at the bottom, Tibumana Waterfall is one of the quieter best waterfalls in Bali.

10. Tukad Cepung Waterfall
Tukad Cepung Waterfall is definitely one of the most unique and interesting Bali waterfalls.
If you’re on a chase to find waterfalls near Ubud, Tukad Cepung Waterfall is quickly becoming famous for it’s beautiful sun rays that beam through the gaps above the falls.
If you’re looking for some incredible natural beauty this is your spot.
11. Kanto Lampo Waterfall
From the car park, it’s a steady five minute walk by stairs to reach Kanto Lampo Waterfall.
The walk runs through the rice terraces and down into the rocks. It’s one of the easiest waterfalls in Bali to get to and it’s highly suitable for families and small children. It doesn’t involve any strenuous trekking or dangerous obstacles.
We recommend visiting as early as possible in order to get some space at the waterfall as it can get a little busy and there is not so much space to explore.
The waterfall itself is a peaceful escape into the Bali jungle and a great way to relax out of peak times.
