Devil's Tears, Nusa Lembongan

Witness the power and majesty of the ocean and its tides at Devil's Tears. The natural landmark gains its name from the ocean spray thrown out from a cave in the cliff face as each wave hits. An attractive place for couples and families, this coastal feature remains largely unknown among tourists, so it offers unspoiled views and a relaxing atmosphere. Find your spot on the rocks at this dynamic stretch of coastline, but be careful where you put your feet--some rocks are jagged. Also, don't underestimate the strength of the waves here--they can be very strong.

  • This spot is easy to find, you will find a lot of tourists during the day. Try in the sunset or sunrise for more private time.  more »
  • Incredibly cool to see the forces of nature. It was pretty much the big waves when we were there so the spectacle were awesome.

  • There were a tonne of other people when we went and it was one of our first stops on the island. I think there are many more impressive spots on Lembongan/Ceningan and one of the worst areas for garba...  more »

  • Powerful performances by the ocean. A beautiful place to watch the swells as they batter the coastline. The splashes go up 10 meters high. Don't get too close to the edge and always watch out for the swells, even if you think you are a safe distance away. Especially when posing for photographs.
  • A place where a wave struck the cliff and boom! A huge water splash created. Make sure you are standing on a good place. The best time to visit is in the afternoon where the water level is high enough to make water splash.
  • It is a spectacular place in Nusa Lembongan to see sunset and to watch a big wave hitting the cliff on the ocean. The landscape is beautiful, but unfortunately there's a small kiosk nearby that really doesn't fit into the scenery. Somebody should regulate any commercial activities there. It's not wrong to open a kiosk there, but in the center of main attraction, that really ruins the scenery.
  • After going to Dream Beach (not worth it) we walked around Devil's Tears. It is nice to see the waves hit against the rocks. We could have stayed there for longer but it was very hot and there is not much shadow. Amazing view. Go there early because during the day a lot of tourists come by car.
  • Pretty cool to see...luckily I got here on a low tide day and got to go down to the lower rock and watch the angry waves. On a high tide day, you could get washed away. It's basically water rushing into a cave and spraying out into several feet in the air...nature is beautiful!
