To feed your adrenaline rush you should experience cliff jumping at Blue Lagoon in Bali. This destination arguably features the clearest blue water you will ever see in the province, perhaps that’s where it got its name. It has a rocky cove. It is situated in Nusa Ceningan and offers an ideal natural setting of white sand and fun activities like swimming and snorkeling.

If you have booked your stay at Nusa Lembongan Island, you can easily reach Ceningan Island. The two islands are connected by the Yellow Bridge. It is about a 15-minute drive from Nusa Lembongan, making it less time-consuming. However, this can be a scary affair for learners and they must be guided and all precautions must be taken before taking the plunge at this notorious fall.

13. Secret Gardens of Sambangam

Editor’s note: Attraction is permanently closed.

This is a beautiful garden that features marvelous waterfalls and brilliant pools. All these bubble and flow languidly through a ravine lined by vines, beautiful flowers, and lush green trees. When the Dutch soldiers invaded the land, locals took refuge in this ravine and were able to dodge the army. At Secret Gardens of Sambangam, the waterfalls are of different sizes and offer a different variety of experiences. The first one is the largest. It takes a deep 75 m (246.1 ft) fall and is a spectacle for visitors. Three waterfalls that follow suit have shorter falls and extremely swimmer-friendly and pleasant swimming pools. Each fall ensures a thrilling cliff jumping experience as they offer 5 m (16.3 ft), 10 m (32.8 ft), and 15 m (49.2 ft) deep jumping spots respectively. There are natural slides too for keen adventure seekers.
