MAHANA POINT CLIFF JUMP ON NUSA CENINGAN, BALI
The Nusa Islands have a reputation for cliff jumping. The Blue Lagoon Cliff Jump on Nusa Ceningan is one of the best cliff jumps in Bali but there is one cliff jump spot you may not have heard of. Mahana Point cliff jump is the best hangout spot on Nusa Ceningan. A rocky outcrop hangs over the ocean making it the perfect spot for a restaurant and bar. There are a 10m and a 5m diving board and a ladder to climb back up safely.

How to get to the Mahana Point cliff jump
If you are staying on Nusa Lembongan you will need to rent a moped for $5 and drive across the yellow bridge. It’s about 15 minutes of driving from the main street in Nusa Lembongan. If you reach the Blue Lagoon, continue driving for another 200 yards and it will be on your right. It’s signposted so you shouldn’t have any trouble spotting the turn-off.
Mahana Point cliff jump
Mahana Point cliff jump is a great little restaurant with epic views and lots of activities to give a crack after your lunch or dinner. They rent out surfboards, which you can use at the break just off the bar. The cliff jumps are obviously the main attraction but it’s also a great spot for sunset, so there is a lot of action going on at this bar and restaurant.
The Mahana Point cliff jump has a 10m diving board and a 5m diving board. There is a ladder to help you get out of the water and up onto the rocks with ease unlike the necessary scramble at the nearby Blue Lagoon Cliff Jump. They do charge per jump, unfortunately. The big 10m jump costs 50,000 rupiah and the small jump costs 25,000 rupiah, which is about $4 USD or $2 USD.
The water was deep enough on both jumps but don’t pin drop as you may scrape the bottom ever so slightly. We backflipped and jumped multiple times off both boards without touching the bottom.
Mahana Point cliff jump restaurant
The food at Mahana Point cliff jump is pretty good quality. We had one of the better Nasi Goreng’s (Indonesia rice, vegetable, and chicken dish) of the trip here and they had a good variety of options on the menu. Because of the location is it is a little more expensive than a Warung in Nusa Lembongan. However, the Nasi Goreng was still only 40,000 or $3USD.
Beers, cocktails, juices, and milkshakes are all available, which go down perfect for a sunset and a great way to finish the day.
Mahana Beach and Surf Break
The Beach right next door is actually a perfect little-secluded cove and one of the many overlooked beaches, not found anywhere on the tourist trail. If you want a beach chill after lunch you can walk around the corner and relax in peace and quiet with no one else around.
Mahana Point cliff jump restaurant rent out surfboards and some of our crew rented a board. They were 70,000 rupiah for the rental, which is just over $5 USD. The break can be watched from the restaurant so your mates can watch from right behind where the waves are breaking. The currents can get strong so this is not a beginners spot to surf, which is something to take into consideration.
Definitely, add this to your list when considering the best things to do on Nusa Ceningan
WHERE TO STAY ON NUSA LEMBONGAN
Swara Homestay 2 – Budget: On my first trip to Nusa Lembongan we stayed at Swara Homestay 2, which set us back $10 a night for a private room with a bathroom. It was incredibly basic but we weren’t there to enjoy a fancy room so it worked for us. It was a great base for our adventures as we got stuck into all of the things to do on Nusa Lembongan. Along the beachfront, there are plenty of fancy resorts if you have the cash to splash but you can get a private room with everything you need for under $20 a night with no problems.

Sukanusa Luxury Huts – Value/My Favorite: These beautiful huts are what a Nusa Lembongan getaway is all about. I think the most important part of accommodation is the view or how unique it is. These huts are the ultimate getaway and although they seriously are a mix of island life and luxury. Definitely check these out before you book a luxury hotel for hundreds of dollars.

Tamarind Resort – Luxury: The second time I stayed on Nusa Lembongan was with my Nusa Islands Blogger Workshop. It was an upgrade from Swara Homestay 2! We stayed at the fancy Tamarind Resort, which was an insane property. It was a paradise hideaway with an awesome restaurant, gym, several infinity pools, and sunset views. If you are looking for an epic place to stay on Lembongan I would definitely recommend the Tamarind Resort!
