Gitgit Waterfall In Bali – A Complete Guide

Gitgit Waterfall Bali is ranked one of the best on the islands by tourists, as well as locals. So here’s everything you need to prepare you for your trip.

How To Get To Gitgit Waterfall

Located in the North of the island, people tend to head to Gitgit Waterfall from Lovina.

The drive takes roughly 40 minutes from Lovina. However if you’re heading up to Gitgit Waterfall from Canggu or Ubud it can take almost 2 hours to get there.

We always choose to rent scooters, which start at around 50,000 IDR per day, and explore ourselves.

However be sure to read up on our renting a scooter in Bali guide beforehand!

If you’re looking for somewhere to rent scooters from you can book a Bali Scooter or Motorbike Rental with Delivery.

Another option is to hire a Bali Private Car or Minibus Charter With Driver, which is pretty popular for day trips around Bali, and they start at around 500,000 IDR per day (8 hours).

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 Denpasar, Ubud, or Kuta, the Sunrise Tour with Dolphins, Waterfalls & Temples is visits Gitgit Waterfall.

If you are making a day of heading up North to chase waterfalls, you can also stop at Sekumpul, Aling Aling, Leke Leke and Nungnung Waterfall.

Gitgit Waterfall Entrance Fee

Entrance: 20,000 IDR per person.

Parking: Free

Gitgit Waterfall Opening Times

Gitgit Waterfall is open all day, every day.

Best Time To Visit Gitgit Waterfall

The best time to visit anywhere on your Bali itinerary, if possible, is between April and October which is the island’s dry season.

You can visit the falls year round but you need to consider the increase in rainfall between November and March. This always makes the jungle treks a little more difficult and slippery.

Swimming is permitted at Gitgit Waterfall and you are sure to get pretty wet from the spray alone, so you might as well go in for a refreshing dip!

The Waterfall Itself

Gitgit Waterfall is an impressive waterfall and is up there as one of the largest on the Bali bucket list.

At the base of the waterfall there are toilets and changing facilities. As well as a seating area to place your bags.

There are no lockers though, so be sure to keep an eye on your belongings.

You can swim right up to the intensity of the falls. Or, if you’re looking to chill in a more quiet area, you can head back a little from Gitgit Waterfall and relax in the pools at the bottom of the rocks.

You can find this spot just to the left of the toilets.

Chill, take photos and have an awesome day at one of the best waterfalls in Bali!

Also, on your way up north, a Bali tour wouldn’t complete without visiting the beautiful Jatiluwih Rice Terraces.
