Karang Boma Cliff is by far one of the best sunset viewpoints on the island of Bali.

Located in Uluwatu, south Bali, this is one location not to be missed during your stay.

I have visited this Uluwatu cliff on countless occasions and have put together this complete guide on how to get there, how much it costs, and what to expect when you arrive at Karang Boma Uluwatu.

HOW TO GET HERE

If you are staying in the Uluwatu region, I recommend renting a scooter and making the short drive over to Karang Boma for sunset.

For those of you who are coming from Kuta, Seminyak, or Canggu, it’s approximately a 1-hour to 1.5-hour journey to reach Karang Boma Uluwatu.

Don’t feel confident riding a scooter? Another great option for getting around Bali is to hire a private car and a driver for the day and experience all that the island has to offer.

Includes:

  • Experienced Driver
  • Hotel pick-up & drop-off
  • Mineral Water
  • Petrol

ULUWATU TOUR

Another alternative when planning a trip to Uluwatu is to book a full-day tour to experience the best beaches in Uluwatu and other popular attractions in the Bukit Penisula.

This Full-Day Uluwatu Tour includes a pick-up and drop-off from your hotel and the places you’ll get to visit are Pandawa Beach, Melastic Beach, Padang Padang, Uluwatu Temple, Kecak Fire Dance, and a seafood dinner on Jimbaran Beach.

ARRIVING AT KARANG BOMA CLIFF

When using Google Maps to find Uluwatu Cliff, it will lead you to the end of a paved road and to a small parking lot out front of a locked gate.

At first, it may seem like the entrance is closed though there is a dirt trail on the right-hand side of the gate that leads all the way down to the cliff.

See the images below that show the turnoff and signpost, and the other is of the parking lot at the big gates. Look out for these landmarks and you shouldn’t get lost.

WHAT TO EXPECT AT KARANG BOMA

There is an entrance fee of 10,000 IDR to visit which is to be paid upon arrival to a ticket officer.

As my friends and I made our way down to the cliff edge, we were in complete awe of the landscape that surrounded us.

The rocky cliffs at Karang Boma Uluwatu tower high above a stunning reef below and Uluwatu Temple can be spotted on the peak of a nearby cliff in the distance.

It’s possible to walk out to the very edge of Uluwatu Cliff but do so at your own risk. It’s approximately a 100-meter drop to the shoreline so please be very careful when exploring this location.

Visiting Karang Boma is truly an exhilarating experience and marveling at the panoramic views overlooking the Bali Sea is what makes this place so unique.

THINGS TO KNOW BEFORE YOU GO

The best time to visit is between 5 pm and 6 pm to catch the golden hour of sunset. However, due to the recent popularity of this viewpoint, you may have to wait in line to get a good shot of the cliff face at this time.

Alternatively, it’s a great place to check out during the middle of the day and there will most likely be no other tourists around. You may also be able to spot experienced surfers riding the waves below the cliffs.

As I mentioned earlier in this article, please take care when exploring this location and do so at your own risk.

But most of all, enjoy an incredible sunset with your friends and family at one of the best viewpoints in Bali.
