Waterblow

Waterblow is an unusual yet picturesque destination that makes a great Instagram backdrop in Bali.

I hope marketing didn’t come up with the name – literally, it blows water up into the air.

Located near Nusa Dua beach on Bali’s Southern side of Denpasar island, Waterblow is at the end of the Peninsula Island (again, another Gold medal goes to Marketing for that name, too). The attraction is home to spectacular panoramic views of Bali and the deep blue waters of the Bali Sea. The Waterblow is a natural formation of corals that were thrust above sea level (30-50′ in many places) many thousands of years ago. A deep crevasse in the above-water corals descends into the ocean that creates a V-shaped channel; Waves continually crash into this channel, forcefully shooting water upwards in a spectacular fashion.

There are two essential things to know to maximize the badassery of your Waterblow visit:

Avoid going in the early mornings – Early mornings are typically calm with relatively light wind. Why is this important? Wind generates waves. Temperature and pressure differences create wind; While these differences happen 24 hours a day, the intense heat of a sunny day helps create massive swells and massive water eruptions.

High tide is the best time to go – This one should be obvious, but the higher the tide, the easier it is for the ocean swells to crash into the rugged coral channel and shoot skywards.

Waterblow is a typical touristy spot where photography is allowed, pre-wedding photography is also allowed, but needs special arrangements from the park. Paths are marked, and signs posted warning the would-be idiots of the danger.

Overall this destination is a great place to stop at if you’re in the area.
