Devils Tear Nusa Lembongan is a unique cave pool on the edge of rocky cliffs that can be found on the southwest coast of Nusa Lembongan Island.
This is my favorite location on the island with plenty of exploring to be had along this awesome coastline.
I have put together this complete guide to Devil’s Tear Nusa Lembongan including where it’s located, the best time to visit, and what to expect when you arrive.
WHERE IS DEVILS TEAR NUSA LEMBONGAN?
Devil’s Tear Nusa Lembongan is located around the corner from Dream Beach, which is another one of the must-see locations on Nusa Lembongan Island.
From the main tourist hub, it’s a short 10-minute drive through the small local villages that will bring you directly to the jump-off point for Devils Tear Nusa Lembongan.
HOW TO GET HERE
The best and easiest way to get to Devil’s Tears Lembongan is by scooter.
There are a number of scooter rental shops dotted along the main street in Nusa Lembongan that will be able to sort you out with some wheels when you arrive.
Alternatively, you can ask the receptionist at your accommodation to help organize a scooter rental for you.
You can expect to pay around 70,000 IDR per day for a scooter rental with a full tank of gas.
I also highly recommend purchasing travel insurance, especially when riding on the roads in Asia. Safety first!
WHAT TO EXPECT AT DEVILS TEAR NUSA LEMBONGAN
Devils Tear Lembongan draws attraction to visitors to see the forceful flow of water entering the cave and spitting it back out again with a roar.
The water is crystal clear and on a calm day, you may be lucky enough to see turtles cruising around in the cove.
There are also a number of warungs (food and drink vendors) to purchase a refreshing coconut, cold water, and other snacks.
Devil’s Tear Nusa Lembongan is one of the best spots on the island to watch the sunset. There are a number of reflection pools along the cliffs where you can get creative and potentially capture some amazing shots.
If you’re up for an adrenaline rush, there are some cliff jumping spots at a smaller cove in front of the reflection pools.
If you do decide to take the leap, you will have to time your jump in between the sets of waves to avoid being caught in a sticky situation.

THINGS TO KNOW BEFORE YOU GO
I made the mistake of exploring Devil’s Tears Nusa Lembongan barefoot, which was not ideal because the rocky outcrops are very sharp along this coastline.
I recommend wearing a good pair of walking shoes when exploring this location.
