I am now trying to call back the memory where did I hear about this waterfall from. Ahh, I see. Now I do remember where I first read about it from. When I was living in Bali (Bali is in Indonesia, not that Indonesia is in Bali), I read a lot about the less known places visited in Bali. I was surprised myself that actually there are so many hidden-gem-places in Bali that worth to visit for.
With a little bit of adventure-like spirit, my boyfriend and I were determined that morning to find this waterfall. From what I read on internet, it isn’t very far from the main tourist spot Tanah Lot Temple. So we drove toward the north of Bali from our place in Jimbaran.
As we pursued until the entrance to Tanah Lot Temple, we couldn’t find any sign of this waterfall. Ok, then we should ask the local people. Surprisingly, some of them that we’ve asked didn’t even know about this waterfall! WTF?!!
Annoyed by this fact as well as tired after a long drive, then we decided to go through the exit street (contrast flow) and saw a turn to a temple. We kept on going and it ended up at the Tanah Lot Temple parking lot hahaha. So we turned back, on our left side we saw an office (I don’t remember what kind) and some youth were hanging around there. Hmmm…
In fact, we ended up in another side of Tanah Lot and it was beautiful, too. Not bad, I thought. At least we found a new splendid view. Yet, I was still curious about the waterfall. Can’t beat it. :h
I bothered to ask a young man next to us about the waterfall. God just loved our effort! That young man pointed to the right side of the beach and we saw a hill, no waterfall. In fact, the waterfall is behind that hill. OMG, relieved 😀
We had to go down and across the small shallow river to reach that hill and we saw black rocks…and the waterfall!!! Yayyy, we found it. And guess, there was no one there hahaha (later on came a fisherman tho).
We really loved our time alone there and of course, taking picture. It was a great time and enjoyable. Oh, the waterfall is seasonal. It disappears during the dry season. And also, the sunset is one of the most magnificent ones in Bali.
