Mahana Point on Nusa Ceningan Island attracts thrill-seekers and experienced surfers from around the world.

A 10-meter diving platform and word-class waves are just some of the things you can expect to find at this epic attraction.

Mahana Point Ceningan is a must-see location on the Nusa Islands and you can enjoy a day of cliff jumping, surfing, swimming, and relaxing over at Mahana Beach.

I have put together this complete guide including how to get here, the best time to visit, and what to expect when you arrive.

WHERE IS MAHANA POINT CLIFF JUMP?

Mahana Point is located on the southwest tip of Nusa Ceningan Island. It’s very close to Blue Lagoon, which is another awesome location on Nusa Ceningan Island worthy of checking out.

HOW TO GET HERE

From the main beach town on Nusa Lembongan Island, it’s approximately a 15-minute ride.

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!

ARRIVING AT MAHANA POINT CENINGAN

When you arrive, you will see a restaurant on the cliffs and this is where Mahana Point Cliff Jump can be found.

There is a fee of 50,000 IDR per jump to take the leap off the diving board, which is a little bit expensive in my opinion, though the owner uses this money to maintain the upkeep of the 10-meter diving platform.

WHAT TO EXPECT AT MAHANA POINT

The Mahana Point restaurant offers a range of great food options, as well as cold drinks, and excellent service. It’s a great spot to hang out for a couple of hours with your friends. 

Mahana is also a well-known surfing location on Nusa Ceningan Island. The left-hand reef break at Ceningan Surf attracts medium to large swells and it works best on a high tide.

Surfboards can be rented from the owner of the restaurant for a reasonable price of 60,000 IDR for 2 hours.

MAHANA POINT CLIFF JUMP

There is a smaller diving platform that sits at about 5-meters above sea level which is recommended to first warm yourself up on before braving the much higher 10-meter cliff jump.

The depth of the water beneath the 10-meter platform is around 3 to 4 meters, so it’s unlikely you will hit the bottom. However, it’s best to time your jump after a set of waves, and jumping at high tide is also recommended.

Once you have braved the jump, you will have to swim around towards Mahana Beach where there is a steel ladder on the side of the cliff that can be used to climb out of the water.

If the current happens to be strong, a rubber ring attached to a rope can be hoisted out into the water to assist those trying to climb out.
