Devil’s Tear Bali, Nusa Lembongan – Indonesia

If you are looking to explore Devil’s Tear Bali, Indonesia, here is an easy guide to do so. From Sanur, a small port at the Southern tip of Bali you can find a return ferry to Nusa Lembongan for about $45 US. There is no need to book ahead of time as there are plenty of ticket offices in Sanur, good luck not being. After your ticket is purchased, sit back and relax on your ~ 30-minute boat ride to Devil’s Tear on Nusa Lembongan.

Make sure to lounge on the top deck of the ferry if it is available for the best view of your transit to Nusa Lembongan.

How to get to Devil’s Tear once you arrive in Nusa Lembongan.

From Canggu, Bali where I stayed at the beautiful Udara Resort which I highly recommend staying at with its beautiful architecture and four different temperature pools. We got transported from Udara resort to a small port called Sanur, which was included in the price of our ferry. Once you touched down on the beautiful white sandy beaches of Nusa Lembongan you will typically be escorted by locals to wherever it is that you are staying on the island. I say typically because it is usually included in the purchase of your ferry ticket, make sure to ask questions about this upon your purchase. Once you have settled in the next best move is to find a spot to hire a scooter, which, like the ferry ticket you shouldn’t find any difficulty locating. With that being said make sure you haggle and find the best deal because the locals will try to get the most they can out of you. I wouldn’t find myself paying any more than 60.000 Rupiah a day for a scooter and would recommend trying to negotiate less. You pay the man and you are on the scooter, it’s that easy, so be sure to inspect if it runs right and if the tires have the right amount of air in them and you are set and ready to explore one of my favorite spots on Nusa Lembongan, Devil’s Tear. Below is a map of where you can find this magical spot.

There are some amazing spots all around the cove to watch the waves foil in and crash against the caves they have been slowly carving out over millennia, but be careful because the spray that blows out can be massive and unforgiving. None the less have fun and take in this beautiful feature of planet earth. From what I heard Devil’s Tear wasn’t always as crowded as it is now so be prepared for a crowd.

Some tips to optimize your experience at Devil’s Tear

Like I said it can be a bit crowded at Devil’s Tear these days as Nusa Lembongan has gained a lot of popularity over the recent years. Check out the pin on the map above and it will bring you to the famous Devil’s Tear spot, but if you walk a bit further past the main cove you will find another just as amazing as Devil’s Tear. There are amazing reflective ponds formed by water that has sprayed up onto the platform of the cliff that makes for some amazing photography. Not only is this place great for some photography but offers a place to climb back up allowing you to have a little fun cliff jumping.
