It’s a twin waterfall
This Bali Sing Sing Waterfall isn’t just one fall, it’s a twin fall. Neither are particularly tall but are decently wide and look very beautiful in its shelter enclave in the middle of the forest.
It is even bigger during rainy season
As a rule of thumb, Bali’s waterfalls are best visited during rainy season when the rainwater has made the rivers and streams swell up. You can clearly see that with Sing Sing Waterfall near Tabanan. All the smaller pools I was able to hop around would be covered by water come the downpours.
It’s off the beaten tourist track
There are plenty of falls in Bali but bigger ones like Sekumpul Waterfall are much more visited of course. The entire Munduk area in the North of Bali boasts stunning and super high waterfalls. But that also attracts more visitors. Singsing waterfall in South Bali I had all to myself when I visited.
It has two swings
It’s one thing to have a waterfall with a nice pool but another to have a swing to entertain yourself. Well, this Singsing waterfall has two swings in fact! I don’t know who made them but there is a donation box in case you want to leave a small thank you. (Note: the swing is better suited for smaller humans. But I tried them anyway.)
The drive is scenic
Getting to Sing Sing Angin waterfall in Bali is not that difficult. Head west on the main road Jl Raya denpasar Gilimanuk (coming from Denpasar, Ubud, Canggu etc) and before you reach Megati, branch off to the right. There are various of these paths that lead to the Singsin waterfall in Bali but take the one closest to the stream as it’s the most scenic and easiest to navigate.
It’s surrounded by rice fields
Along the scenic drive you will not only follow trails through lush forest vegetation and quaint villages with old temples. You will also pass by stunning rice fields. Those are a must when in Bali! Plenty of visitors head all the way up to Tegallalang for that. You can have similar ones included in this day trip.
There is no forest trekking
With many other Bali falls, you need to walk up and down small steps and follow wet trails to get there. With Sing Sing Angin, you can park your bike at the top in a small parking lot. Then head down proper stone steps for two minutes. And you’re there!
It has pretty cascades
The twin waterfalls collect in a pool and then run down over rocks until they form the stream. It’s very pretty to see. During my visit at the end of dry season, it kinda created a third waterfall this way. During rainy season, I’d expect it to be a rushing stream.
There’s a pool
If you come all the way for a waterfall in Bali, you might want to bring swimwear to refresh yourself after the long and hot ride. Just don’t expect to have space for real swims. It’s not a fof the underwater rocks though.
There are huts for picnics
If you want to really make the most of your waterfall visit, bring food and drinks along. There are multiple wooden huts/shelters. This way, you can stay out of the sun (or sudden rainshower) and dig into the foodie goodies. Just make sure you take all your trash with you again.
The waterfall might be natural but it is locally monitored and there is a big gate at its entrance. As such, it actually has opening times. These are from 8am to 5pm. The address is Air Terjun Sing Sing Angin, Manikyang, Selemadeg, Kabupaten Tabanan, Bali 82162.
What to Pack for Sing Sing Angin Waterfall
For any season in Bali, you need to pack sunscreen and apply it multiple times per day. The sun radiation is strong and even if you don’t think it, you will get a burn easily. Even though I put my 50+ sunscreen on plenty, my shoulders still got a slight burn. Always reapply before and after your rides!
Insect repellent is another must anywhere near bodies of water and around dusk and dawn times. While you probably will not bother visiting during sunset or sunrise (no light), there definitely will be water throughout the year. It’s not a seasonal waterfall. So spray yourself properly to avoid getting bitten. (And potentially get a tropical disease.)
Bringing a small towel along isn’t only great if you plan on getting wet at Sing Sing Angin. You can also use it to sit on on your scooter. The plastic seats will get hot and sweaty, which easily leads to skin irritation when wearing short skirts or shorts.
Alternatively, use a Turkish Towel or light cashmere shawl, which is also handy when you need to wear something around your knees or shoulders when entering Buddhist temples.
Don’t dehydrate! Drink lots of water, especially on hot days. While there are convenience stores along the main road, there aren’t any near the waterfall, only small local shops. You can of course purchase drinks along the way but to help reduce your sugar intake too, definitely bring your own bottle of water along.
If you are wandering around the waterfall pools and/or like taking selfies, investing in a waterproof smartphone case is a smart move. You can stick your phone in the see through bag and seal it shut. This way you can wear it around your neck without fear of it getting wet. Imagine you slipped and your phone fell out of your pocket here! Proper nightmare.
Is a Day Trip to Sing Sing Angin Watefalls Worth It?
If you only have limited time in Bali and want to see lots of the island, don’t bother. It’s a nice little twin waterfall but not all that. And if you are staying in Canggu, it takes 90 minutes by scooter to get there.
I visited because I love chasing waterfalls and it made for a nice day trip. The fact that I had it to myself, that the surrounding nature was super pretty and it was pretty straightforward getting here was great. I hated the bumpy ride down to Skeumpul Waterfall, for instance. Sticking to a certain path for Sing Sing Waterfall, I didn’t have that issue.
