Karang Boma Cliff is one of the most scenic and incredible Uluwatu cliff top viewpoints in Bali. If you visit at sunset, you’ll be sure to witness one of the most beautiful sunsets ever! Karang Boma Cliff is definitely an up and coming gem so be sure to visit before it becomes full of tourists.
How to get to Karang Boma Cliff
From Canggu to Karang Boma Cliff it should take 1 and a half hours. Sometimes it can take around 2 hours to get there depending on Bali traffic. We drove to the Uluwatu cliff straight after visiting Bingin Beach which only took 15 minutes.
Follow the directions of your GPS which will lead you along a cobbled road. You’ll come across a red boom gate that you can just drive around. Continue along the cobbled road until you reach an iron gate, which is where you can park the motorcycle. The pathway to the cliff is to the right and is less than a 5 minute walk along the dirt track.
UPDATE 2018: We’ve been told that the locals have blocked off the cobble stone road leading to the cliff, so you will either have to walk 15 minutes or pay 40K IDR for a scooter transfer.
Where to stay in Bali
There are plenty of popular areas to stay in Bali. For people looking for a base or villa to rent for a while, Canggu is the perfect spot with cafes and restaurants right near the beach. If you’re on holiday for a short amount of time and looking for a hotel, then Kuta or Seminyak is great for clubs, bars and cheap shopping. While in Bali we stayed at Riyuri Guesthouse in Canggu. They have beautiful rooms in a great location so we definitely recommend checking them out!
