The Hidden Canyon Bali is an upcoming tourist spot on the island. So for those that are ready for an adventure, here’s all the info for visiting.
How To Get To The Hidden Canyon In Bali
The Hidden Canyon in Bali, also known as Beji Guwang, is located towards the South East side of the island.
Just down the road from Tegenungan Waterfall, it is around a 1 hour drive from Canggu and 30 mins from Ubud.
Once you get close, there are road signs leading all the way to Hidden Canyon Beji Guwang.
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.
Hidden Canyon Entrance Fee
Entrance fees start at 200,000 IDR for a single person.
Prices are discounted depending on the amount of people in your group. See photo below.
You MUST take a guide and prices include water, changing rooms and a locker.
Best Time To Visit The Hidden Canyon + Tips
The best time to visit Bali is between April and October, the island’s dry season.
The Hidden Canyon is still one of the lesser known spots on the island, so is typically not over crowded with tourists.
However, as with anywhere in Bali the best time to visit is always earlier in the morning when it is usually quieter.
Don’t try and take your best quality electronics as they will get wet. We were lucky to make it out with our cameras still intact.
Take some wet shoes with you if you have some as your feet take a hammering climbing all the rocks.
WHAT TO PACK

What To Expect At Hidden Canyon Beji Guwang Bali
Definitely expect to get wet! Furthermore, the Hidden Canyon Bali is no joke when it comes to climbing, jumping and clambering.
With chest high water from the get-go, be prepared to get very wet and for your feet to go through the mill on this adventure.
A local guide will help you with where to walk, stand and what to hold on to. Although please be careful as there are a lot of rocks in the water and it can get very slipper.
He also, helpfully, carries a dry bag for your phones and cameras, if you wish to take them with you but are worried about carrying them yourself.
The trek takes roughly 1-2 hours depending on speed/ability and we recommend taking some wet shoes with you if you have some.
If you don’t want to walk through the whole canyon there is a back entrance, via some rice fields, which we saw some older tourists and families using.
Over all, the Hidden Canyon Beji Guwang was pretty cool, but nothing like it looked on google images. The water wasn’t so blue, although we assumed that this might be due to the recent heavy rain!
