Beautiful Waterfalls near Sanur
Even though Bali has some of the best beaches and sunset cocktails around, there is still so much more the island has to offer, such as the stunning waterfalls! Here is a list of waterfalls you should plan to visit on your next Bali trip.
For you adventurous souls, here are some hidden treasures around Sanur for you to jump right into!
Unlike other waterfalls, Tegenungan is not situated in the mountains, which is rare for a Balinese waterfall. This waterfall is located in Ubud village and surrounded by lush greenery, with the bonus of a temple nearby, along with natural springs that are great spots for bathing. The flow of the water is quite heavy, making it clean and fresh, and attracts plenty of locals who come here every day to enjoy a refreshing bath. For fellow photographers out there, the best time to visit this waterfall is in the evening as the east-facing location captures the gorgeous afternoon light.
Unlike the Tegenungan waterfall where the waters flow naturally down into a spacious area, Kanto Lampo is located in a canyon in the Gianyar region. The water flows down thousands of jagged rocks and into a shallow pool which then flows into the forest. On the sides of the waterfall are walls of solid rock full of lush vegetation. Note that access to Kanto Lampo is challenging, as a long walk and trekking is required, and the only way to go down into the cool water is by using a bamboo handrail. It’s a small and magical area where you can bathe in the waterfall’s cooling mist once you get down into the shallow canyon.
Goa Rang Reng
The access to this waterfall is only possible by motorbike. Two small pathways lead towards Goa Rang Reng waterfall, one of them leading to a sacred cave and the other towards the waterfall itself. You may explore the sacred cave but only with the help of the local guides. After a slow descent, you’ll find a gently cascading waterfall. Goa Rang Reng flows down a gentle angle with a natural pool on top for you to swim.
