Starting off this list is the Tegenungan Waterfall, the largest and the most popular waterfall in Bali. Located just 30 min south of Ubud, this picturesque waterfall is hidden in the middle of a jungle in the village of Kemenuh. It’s highly recommended to visit Tegenungan Waterfall early in the morning when the tourists haven’t flocked to this place yet. And it’s also the perfect time to catch the very first sunlight shining through the canopy from the top of the waterfall to the natural pond below. The magic of nature happens when the spray from the waterfall touches the golden morning lights. Don’t miss this special moment in Bali with your beloved one.

The Banyu Wana Amertha Waterfall can be found in the North of Bali and is actually a group of 3 or even 4 waterfalls if you are lucky enough to visit this region in the rainy season. Like other waterfalls in the list, the Banyu Wana is also hidden in the jungle, rounded by exotic plants, bamboo forests, and jack fruit trees. Yet the hike to the waterfall is much shorter and more enjoyable, with just 5 to 10 minutes. After seeing all four waterfalls, you can choose to go for a swim or continue exploring the nearby jungle.

After just a one-hour ride from Canggu or Ubud, passing lush greenery and rice fields, you can find yourself in the middle of a tranquil oasis in Leke Leke Waterfall. This hidden waterfall is narrow and therefore might not look as impressive as the others. But due to the height as well as the lush forestation as background, it is also a perfect place for a unique photoshoot. To arrive at the waterfall, you only have to walk through the back of a village and then cross some bamboo bridges until the sound of the falls tells you that you are in the right direction. Unfortunately, you can’t swim in the pool because it’s too small and narrow, but there is a hidden natural cave behind the fall for you to explore.

The surrounding cliffs are also covered in greenery and moss, making the scene more surreal.
