Located on Nusa Lembongan Island, just 30 minutes by boat from the main island of Bali, Devils Tear is not as intimidating as it sounds.
An Amazing Natural Display
This natural landmark gained its dramatic name from the ocean spray that is thrown out from a cave found in the cliff surface as each wave breaks. This coastal feature has remained pretty much unknown among tourists, making it an attractive spot for couples and families which are seeking unspoiled views and a relaxing, quiet atmosphere. You can stand on the rocks and feel the waves pour down on you, but don’t underestimate their strength as they can be very powerful. Also, the crashing waters are sometimes huge here, so don’t come here if you’re not ready to get wet! You will have a spectacular moment each time a wave collides with the jagged rocks of the bay’s cliffs, that creates a wonderful effect.
Take One of the Coast’s Walking Trails and Catch Dramatic Waves
Devils Tear can be found by either taking a short minute walk up north from Dream Beach or south from Sunset Beach. The low cliffs in the southern area have some superb coastal walking routes. The best of them begin at Dream Beach, from where you should take the path north over the Devil’s Tear outcrop, where you’ll get to see some of the most dramatic wave formations that can be found around the island. If you keep your track north to Sunset Beach, you can get a chance to explore the cove. If you arrive at low tide, you may even have the chance of accessing the cave at the eastern end of the beach.
The excellent Beach Club at Sandy Bay (Sunset beach) is located here, a perfect place for visitors to unwind with a drink and spend the day. This un-crowded area is perfect for those that want to get away from packed tourist destinations and enjoy one of nature’s wonders.
