DISCOVER MAHANA POINT ON NUSA CENINGAN ISLAND!
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.
Mahana Point Ceningan is a must-see location on the Nusa Islands for a day of cliff jumping, surfing, swimming and relaxing over at Mahana Beach.
Have you got travel insurance for Bali? I know that nobody likes to talk about this stuff but accidents can happen and having World Nomads Insurance can save you thousands of dollars if something goes wrong.
WHERE TO FIND MAHANA POINT CLIFF JUMP
Mahana Point is located on the southwest tip of Nusa Ceningan Island. It’s very close to Blue Lagoon, which is another one of my favorite locations on Nusa Ceningan Island.

WHAT TO EXPECT AT MAHANA POINT NUSA CENINGAN
When you arrive at Mahana Point you will see a restaurant on the cliffs and this is where Mahana Point Cliff Jump can be found.
There is a fee of 50,000 Rupiah to take the leap of the diving board at Mahana Point which is a little bit expensive in my opinion, though the owner uses this money to maintain the upkeep of the 10-meter diving platform.
The restaurant here on the Mahana Point has 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 at Ceningan Surf attracts medium to large swells and it works best on a high tide.
Surfboards can be rented from the owner of the restaurant at Mahana Point for a reasonable price of 60,000 Rupiah for 2 hours.

MAHANA POINT – CONTINUED
There is a smaller diving platform at Mahana Point that sits at about 5-meters above the sea level which is recommended to warm yourself up on before braving the much higher 10-meter cliff jump.
The depth of the ocean water beneath the 10-meter platform at Mahana Point is around 3 to 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 into the water to assist those trying to climb out.

MAHANA POINT – THINGS TO KNOW BEFORE YOU GO
Mahana Point on Nusa Ceningan Island can easily be visited on a day trip from Nusa Lembongan. There is a yellow suspension bridge that connects the two islands.
If you want to stay on Nusa Ceningan Island for a night or two there are a number of accommodation options to choose from.
One spot that I am familiar with is the Le Pirate Beach Club, which has an in-house restaurant/bar, an infinity pool overlooking the ocean and gorgeous blue and white beach shacks on the water’s edge.
