Devil’s Tears Nusa Lembongan is an incredible cliffside cove where large waves crash against the rocks with such force that they explode back out into the ocean. Devil’s Tears is certainly a spectacular sight as giant waves and mist shoot up into the air, creating a loud rumble.
How to get to Devil’s Tears Nusa Lembongan
We stayed in the main area of Nusa Lembongan, close to the Lembongan Diving Centre. From here it was only a 15 minute drive on our scooters. The main attractions on Nusa Lembongan are located fairly close to each other so getting around won’t take long from your accommodation. We managed to see all of the top things to do on Nusa Lembongan in just one day. Another popular attraction just around the corner is Dream Beach. The best way to get around the island is to rent a scooter. This will cost you 70k IDR for the day.
Where to stay
You’ll be able to find accommodation on both Nusa Lembongan & Nusa Ceningan, although the more popular island to stay on is Nusa Lembongan. The main area to stay on Nusa Lembongan is on the west of the island. Here you’ll fine a variety of accommodation types. If you’re looking to treat yourself, Lembongan Island Beach Villas and Lembongan Cliff Villas are beautiful places to stay with classic Indonesian style. If you’re after a guesthouse, Suba Homestay is also a super nice and affordable place to stay on Lembongan.
What to expect at Devil’s Tears Nusa Lembongan
As you arrive at the Devil’s Tears, park anywhere in the large dirt car park. You can drive right up to the lookout so you will only have to walk less than 2 minutes. Currently there is no parking fee or any entrance fees. There are plenty of food and drink stalls at the car park so you can grab some refreshments and food.
Devil’s Tears Nusa Lembongan is one of the more touristy attractions on the island. There are groups of tour vans running tours throughout the day so this place can get very busy. Many of the tourists stay further back so you’ll be fine to get a photo close to the edge.
The conditions can be unpredictable so be cautious. You can expect the occasional set of waves that will soak you if you’re too close to the edge. We spent some time watching the waves come crashing into the cove, shooting mist up into the air. We also managed to spot a turtle hanging around so if you’re lucky enough you might be able to spot some too!
If you head along the left of the coast you’ll reach a spot with some rock pools and even a natural infinity pool. These pools display perfect reflections so we can imagine this spot being incredible for sunset. Additionally, there are plenty of other coves and pools to be explored. Venture along the coastline away from the tourists and you’ll be sure to find yourself an awesome spot to chill.
