Suwat Waterfall – Hidden Natural Pool Near Ubud, Bali
The Suwat Waterfall is a nice hidden gem in the Gianyar area of Bali, just a short distance from Ubud.
This waterfall hasn’t been discovered by the tourist hordes yet, but it’s great for swimming and photos. There’s even a neat bamboo raft you can float around on.This travel guide will explain how to get there, and everything you need to know before you go!
Where To Stay
Suwat Waterfall – What To Expect
The path down to the waterfall is very easy and takes you through a small bamboo forest and other tropical foliage along the way.
At the bottom, you’ll see some cool rock carvings and a big natural pool with a 20 meter waterfall at the back. It has a bamboo raft made by the locals, and there’s even a cave to explore behind the falls.
At the moment, Suwat Waterfall (also known by its Indonesian name Air Terjun Suwat) is basically unknown to foreign tourists, and I wasn’t able to find it on any English blogs on the internet! We only saw a small handful of locals there when we went.
The entry fee is 15k Rupiah ($1) as of 2020.
How To Get There
Suwat Waterfall is located in Gianyar, just 30 minutes from Ubud. If you’re coming from Canggu or Kuta, the drive is about 1 hour.
When you arrive, it’s just a 5 minute walk down to the waterfall. Enjoy!
Bali Private Driver & Motorbike Rental
If you want to explore Bali in the comfort and safety of a private car with a driver, my top recommendation would be Klook.
Their price is 450k IDR ($30 USD) for a full day of driving and sightseeing in Bali (up to 10 hours) for 1-5 passengers. That's the total price for the whole car + driver + petrol! It's a steal.
If you'd rather travel by motorbike, they have that too. Their scooter rentals start at 85k IDR (~$6) and include a helmet, rain coat, and pickup in the south Bali area.
We've used Klook for lots of tours and activities around the world, and they're great! Highly recommended.
