The Mahana Point Cliff Jump on Nusa Ceningan Island attracts thrill seekers from around the world. A 10 meter diving platform hangs over the rocky cliffs at Mahana Point.
Nusa Ceningan island can be visited on a day trip from Nusa Lembongan. There is a yellow suspension bridge that connects the two islands together. If you want to stay on Nusa Ceningan island you can find a number of accomodation options. One spot that I am familiar with is the Le Pirate Beach Club, which has an in house restaurant/bar, infinity pool over looking the ocean and gorgeous blue and white beach shacks on the oceans edge.

WHERE TO FIND MAHANA POINT CLIFF JUMP
The cliff jumping spot at Mahana Beach can be found on the south-west tip of Nusa Ceningan island. It is very close to Blue Lagoon, which is another one of my favourite locations on this island. See the map below for the exact pin location of Mahana Point Cliff Jump.
When you arrive to Mahana Beach you will see a restaurant on the cliffs and this is where the cliff jumping platform can be found. There is a fee of 50,000 Rupiah to jump which is a little bit expensive in my opinion, though the owner uses this money to maintain the upkeep of the 13 meter diving platform. The restaurant here on the cliffs have a range of food options available, cold drinks and excellent service.
Mahana Point is also a well known surfing location on Nusa Ceningan. The left hand reef break attracts medium to large swells and it works best on high tide. Surfboards can be rented from the owner of the restaurant for a reasonable price of 60,000 Rupiah for 2 hours.
There is a smaller diving platform that sits at about 5 meters above the sea level it is recommended to warm yourself up on before braving the much higher 13 meter cliff jump.
The depth of the landing from the 10 meter jump point is around 3-4 meters, so it is unlikely you will hit the bottom. It is best to jump after the sets of waves that crash up against the cliffs and jumping on high tide is also recommended.
Once you have braved the jump, you will have to swim around towards Mahana Beach to where there is a steel ladder on the side of the cliff that can be used to climb out of the water. If the current happens to be strong, a rubber ring attached to a rope can be hoisted out in to the water to assist those trying to climb out.
Mahana Point Ceningan is a must see location on the Nusa Islands. Make a day of cliff jumping, surfing, swimming and relaxing over at Mahana Beach.
