Best Waterfalls in Bali To Visit With Kids

Secret Waterfalls + Hot Springs In Bali

Bali’s nature is simply great and it offers lots of natural treasures that are well worth seeing. Without a doubt, Bali’s Waterfalls and Hot Springs are beauties that you should see. We have combed the island to find and show you the best waterfalls! Pack towels and bathers, as you can swim in most of the pools underneath the waterfalls. Also it is recommended to bring sturdy shoes, as some paths are slippery and muddy, especially during the rainy season. Baby carriers are a must and you might want to do your research before visiting any of the following places, as some of them are better to visit with older kids. Let’s go!

  • Gitgit Waterfall In Bali

    Gitgit Waterfall (Air Terjun Gitgit Bali)

    One of Bali’s so called Niagara waterfalls; Munduk Waterfall is located about 70 kilometers from Kuta, in the rainforest around Munduk Village, within the regency of Buleleng.  Although the trip to this natural treasure in the north of Bali takes about 2 ½-3 hours from Kuta, it is well worth the effort. To make the most of it, combine a Munduk visit with other highlights in the North. The area around Munduk Waterfall, with its two twin lakes, is stunning. The clove plantations and rice fields with the backdrop of Bali’s most popular mountains make Munduk a terrific place. Gitgit waterfall is the perfect family attraction as kids can play in the water and romp around! Be aware of the slippery rocks.

  • Blahmantung Waterfall In Bali

    Blahmantung Waterfall (Air Tenjun Blahmantung)

    One of Bali’s hidden beauties; Blahmantung Waterfall is located near the picturesque farming village of Pupuan, with awesome landscapes and extremely friendly inhabitants, and it's close to Antosari in the Tabanan Recency. The trip to Blahmantung Waterfall is an amazing experience as you drive through Tabanan, Bali’s biggest rice producing area. With a spectacular drop of over 100 meters, Blahmantung waterfall is the highest and most impressive waterfall you can find on the island. The 800 meters walk from the parking lot to Blahmantung waterfall is partially challenging and especially during the rainy season where you should be aware of slippery rocks. The pool of Blahmantung waterfall is surrounded by lush green scenery and bathing there is simply great. Recommended for families with older kids.

  • Sekumpul Waterfall In Bali

    Sekumpul Waterfall

    Sekumpul is located in the Singaraja region and is one of Bali’s hidden gems due to its inaccessibility. You must travel down many slippery steps and across a river to see the falls close-up. Ask locals to take you to the waterfall for a little bit of money. They will take you until the end of the road, from where you can walk around 50 meters and find great views from high ground.

  • Nungnung Waterfall In Bali

    Nungnung Waterfall

    Nungnung waterfall is located in the village of Nungnung, about 45 minutes from Denpasar. Nine hundred meters above sea level, this picture-perfect waterfall is waiting for you! Although the view is magnificent it’s a real challenge to get there as it is situated at the bottom of a gorge, and you must descent 509 steps to reach the falls! Ready for the challenge? A good one with older kids!

  • Tegenungan Waterfall In Bali

    Tegenungan Waterfall

    Located in Tegenungan Kemenuh village in Gianyar, and just 16 kilometers from Denpasar. Tegenungan is one of the few waterfalls in Bali that is not situated in the highlands or mountains. Tegenungan waterfall is unique for its lush green surroundings and heavy water flow, perfect for swimming and enjoying the fresh water. Also a popular quick escape from the city rush for locals!

  • Jembong Waterfall In Bali

    Jembong Waterfall

    Jembong waterfall is located 70kms from Denpasar, towards the Singaraja regency.

  • Bayumala Waterfall In Bali

    Banyumala Twin Waterfall

    Located in Wanagiri district near Lake Buyan, Banyumala Waterfall is not an easy waterfall to find but it will well worth your effort. We recommend getting a local who knows his/her way around this area to guide you there! Absorb the thunderous sounds of the water pouring among the rich green tropical scenery and take some photos of the most awesome twin falls you have ever seen. A cool dip in this fresh water is a must!

  • Aling Waterfall In Bali

    Aling Waterfall

    Located just 11kms from Singaraja and 80kms from Denpasar, this waterfall is unique for a special reason. The 35-meters tall waterfall is split at the top, leaving two streams that fall at completely different speeds. You haven’t heard the best bit yet. The water flowing down has slowly created a natural water slide. A one of a kind opportunity, to slide down a waterfall! Cool? Indeed. Mind you though that to reach the falls you have to take a steep walk down!
