Devil’s Tears In Nusa Lembongan – A Complete Guide

Home to some of the wildest waves we’ve ever seen, here’s why you shouldn’t miss visiting Devil’s Tears in Nusa Lembongan.

How To Get To Devil’s Tears

From Bali you can book a Bali to Nusa Lembongan Island: Fast Boat Transfer in advance, or barter with the locals at Sanur harbour.

If you’re travelling over from Bali you’ll most likely arrive at Mushroom Beach ferry port in Lembongan.

From here you can grab a scooter for around 70,000 IDR per day. Or barter with the local taxi drivers to take you around the island.

Everywhere on Nusa Lembongan is reachable within a 30 minute drive. So renting a scooter for the duration of your stay and exploring on two wheels is definitely the easiest option.

We covered all of the things to do on Nusa Lembongan in just a single day and the Devil’s Tears were easily reachable using Google maps below.

For those short on time, or that prefer everything to be organised for them, there are some awesome tours on Get Your Guide available to book in advance.

If you are based in Bali, the Nusa Lembongan & Nusa Ceningan Island Tour or the Lembongan Land Tour with Devil’s Tears on Buggy are both a good option.

Best Time To Visit Devil’s Tears

The driest months on the islands of Nusa Penida, Nusa Lembongan and Nusa Ceningan are July and August, although the weather is pretty good all year round with a mix of wet and dry as the climate moves towards the drier season.

The peak season for tourists is between May and October and it does get pretty busy.

This is a popular tourist attraction, so visit early or late in the day are best if you want to avoid too many people.

The rocky outcrops are quite sharp so good footwear is recommended.

Devil’s Tear Nusa Lembongan is recommended as one of the best spots on the island to watch the sunset.

Don’t forget your camera as there are some great photo opportunities here.

What To Expect At Devil’s Tears In Nusa Lembongan

Devil’s Tears is a rocky outcrop on the south west coast of Nusa Lembongan that, at high tide, has crashing waves and amazing water sprays. 

Offering panoramic views of the coast line and some of the wildest waves we’ve ever seen, Devil’s Tears is definitely one of the coolest spots on Lembongan island.

This natural landmark got its name from the ocean spray thrown out from a cave in the cliff face as each wave hits. An impressive show of Mother Nature’s power, it reminded us why you don’t want to mess with her!

After the crash of the waves against the rocks, you see a huge spray and then what looks like dozens of mini waterfalls cascading down back into the water. Similar to that of the Blue Lagoon.

Be Careful

The dramatic action of the beautiful blue water at Devil’s Tears captivates everyone that sees it.

However, be warned guys, don’t stand too close to the edge as it can be very dangerous.

It sounds wild, but when we were there we saw a tourist get knocked clean off her feet by a huge wave crashing over the edge! Another reason to keep your travel insurance up to date!

If you’re looking to get in the water then head over to Mahana Point Cliff Jump.

You’ll find a few snack huts and water spots available to top up your energy, or if you arrive early like us, grab some breakfast.

There’s also a natural infinity pool around the corner from the main tourist attraction that is worth taking a look at.
