Fiji Waterfall is located in northern Bali and is the only triple waterfall on the island. Many people seem to overlook this stunning gem when visiting the waterfalls up north so be sure not to miss out! Here’s everything you need to know about Fiji Waterfall.
How to get to Fiji Waterfall Bali
Fiji Waterfall is located in the north of Bali up in the mountain regions. It is roughly a 2 hour drive from the main tourist areas in Canggu, Kuta and Seminyak. The cheapest option to get there would be to hire a scooter and drive yourself. You can rent a scooter for around 50K IDR ($5 AUD) per day. The drive up north winds up the mountain with plenty of twists and turns, so if you’re not a confident driver, the next best option would be to hire a driver. Prices usually start from around 500K IDR ($50 AUD) per day and they’ll take you to as many stops as you like.
Fiji Waterfall, also referred to as Lemukih, is actually just a short walk away from the famous Sekumpul Waterfall. The same main entrance is used for both Fiji and Sekumpul waterfall which is where we’ve placed the pin on the map below. The entrance to Sekumpul Waterfall can be a little tricky to find. There are also a few scams in the area which make it more difficult for tourists. Be sure to read our guide on Sekumpul Waterfall here for all the details!
Fiji Waterfall Entrance Fee
Entry for Fiji Waterfall costs 15K IDR ($1.50 AUD) per person. You’ll also have to pay the entrance for Sekumpul Waterfall which is 30K IDR ($3 AUD) per person. The first ticket booth is at the parking area and is where you’ll pay entry for Sekumpul. The second ticket booth is further down at Fiji Waterfall itself.
The waterfall is open from 8AM. However, you can head there earlier if you wish. We decided to visit at 6.30AM for sunrise and found no one there to hassle us about needing a guide. You definitely don’t need a guide as the walk will only take you about 15 minutes down some steps.
The Walk Down
The walk down is easy to follow with stairs most of the way. However, it does get a little tiring as the steps gradually get steeper. As you make your way down the steps, continue straight at the first fork as the pathway leading off to the left will take you to Sekumpul Waterfall. You’ll want to take the second left down the steps when you can see a big bridge and some little huts. This is where the entrance is to Fiji Waterfall and is where you’ll have to pay. Additionally, if you decide to check out Sekumpul first, there is a sign indicating the path to follow to reach Fiji Waterfall. It should only be a 5 minute walk.
What to Expect
Fiji Waterfall is one of a kind, being the only triple waterfall in all of Bali. After walking along a stream and over a few bamboo bridges, you’ll eventually see the stunning wall of three waterfalls. We’ve never seen anything quite like it! The waterfall to the left was the most powerful when we visited so we decided to take photos in front of that one. There is also an awesome bamboo bridge to incorporate into your photos. All three of the waterfalls are fairly powerful so the mist and spray in the area can be intense. If you have any electronics or cameras with you, be prepared to constantly wipe the lens every 2 minutes.
We made our way to Fiji Waterfall after first visiting Sekumpul and still found no one else around even by 9.30AM. We definitely recommend going as early as you can to have this gem all to yourself. The lighting in the mornings is also a lot softer so you won’t get the harsh bright light hitting the water.
With all the hype around Sekumpul Waterfall, many people overlook this neighbouring waterfall when visiting. We found it to be even better than Sekumpul and were blown away by the size of all three waterfalls. If you’re in the area, definitely make the effort to check Fiji Waterfall out for yourself. You won’t regret it!
Where to Stay
Many people visit north Bali to explore some of the best waterfalls on the island. If you’re planning on checking out multiple waterfalls in the area, it’s best to split up the trip and stay somewhere close. We stayed in Munduk for a night as it’s close to a few waterfalls and only 40 minutes away from Fiji Waterfall. It’s much easier doing it this way instead of driving over 2 hours from Denpasar and back.
Munduk Moding Plantation Nature Resort & Spa – Luxury: Located in Munduk, you’ll find a beautiful villa that has some of the best views in the area. The property features an infinity pool that hangs off the edge of the jungle which provides an exceptional view. Pair that with a beautiful sunset and you’re sure to have an incredible stay!
Amartya Puri Green Cottages – Midrange: This property offers cosy rooms with a terrace where you can enjoy the beautiful garden views. The natural swimming pool is also set amongst the rice fields, making it a super peaceful environment to unwind and relax.
One Homestay and Warung – Budget: We stayed here for one night as a cheap place to rest while we explored the north Bali waterfalls. The homestay has a nice view of the surrounding hills and volcanoes. The rooms also have their own small balcony and guests can make use of the warung located on the property. The food was cheap and tasted pretty good!
