How To Get To Karang Boma Cliff

Located in the South of Uluwatu, just around the corner from Nyang Nyang Beach, Karang Boma Cliff has become a super famous sunset spot in Bali.

It’s around an hour drive from Canggu and two hours from Ubud on a good day.

There are signs on the main road pointing to the turning for Karang Boma. Simply follow the map until you hit the signs and head through the bushes to get there.

We always choose to rent scooters, which start at around 50,000 IDR per day, and explore ourselves. However be sure to read up on our Renting A Scooter In Bali guide beforehand! If you’re looking for somewhere to rent scooters from you can book a trusted scooter rental here.

Another option is to rent a driver, which is pretty popular for day trips around Bali, and they start at around 500,000 IDR per day (8 hours). Here’s an easy link to book a private car with a driver for the day.

For those short on time, or that prefer everything to be organised for them, there are some awesome tours on Get Your Guide available to book in advance.

The best time to visit Bali is between April and October, the island’s dry season.

The best time to visit Karang Boma Cliff however, is all dependant on what you want to experience. 

If you want much less of a crowd, or no crowd at all – sunrise is a great option.

However if you’re not a morning person, during the golden hour before the sun sets, the view is also absolutely breathtaking.

Karang Boma Cliff has built a reputation as being one of the best places to watch sunset in Uluwatu.

What To Expect At Karang Boma Cliff (Uluwatu Cliff)

Karang Boma Cliff, also known as Uluwatu Cliff, has recently become a popular spot for photographers and Instagram fanatics across Bali.

Just a short drive from some of the best beaches in Uluwatu it’s definitely worth a drive up to and although we didn’t, many people recommend it for sunset.

The drive in is sweet and simple. You can park you bike at the top of the hill and head through the bushes to pop out at the viewpoint.

We headed up with a gang of friends and got snap happy. The only thing missing was a picnic!

The edge of Karang Boma Cliff is easy to get to, although it’s super steep and as dangerous as it looks in the photos. So please be careful!

View wise you can look out as far as the eye can see into the Indian Ocean and round a little to other Uluwatu hot spots.

As we mentioned we never made it to Uluwatu cliff for sunset although from the photos we’ve seen if you’re a fan of crazy colours then around 6pm is the best time to visit!

    Maybe you can update your post 🙂 There is still no entry fee but the locals blocked the street so you have to walk around 15 to 20 minutes or pay 40k for an scooter tranfer. If you want to bring a drone, there is an extra fee of 100k.
