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

HOW TO GET HERE

The best and easiest way to get here is by scooter or car.

If you are staying in the Ubud region, I recommend renting a scooter and making the short drive over to these beautiful falls at Tibumana.

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

WHAT TO EXPECT AT TIBUMANA WATERFALL

Tibumana Waterfall Bali used to be a little hidden gem but thanks to Instagram this location is slowly getting more and more popular.

Tibumana features a thin curtain of falls that fills a large catch basin below.

The depth of the swimming hole at the base of the falls is around waist-deep which makes it a perfect spot for swimming.

There is a small cave behind the waterfall which you can walk into and get another cool perspective of the falls and the moss-covered rock walls.

The best time to visit is in the early morning and chances are you will have it all to yourself.
