The Kemenuh Butterfly is a little magical place to explore. It is really close to the Tegenungan Waterfall so perhaps combine them together. Both are only 15 minutes from Komune Resort in Keramas. From memory it is under 100 000 rupiah( my Dad paid so I am not 100%) and you get an interesting orange drink on arrival. You can wander for as long as you wish through the beautiful garden as the butterflies float about and you can learn about their lifecycle which is everso brief and fleeting. There is a restaurant there also if your feeling peckish and you can have one of those random experiences of having giant butterflies placed all over you by the gorgeous young guide, an experience I didn’t know I wanted until it happened.
This waterfall is known by two names depending on which village you come through. We came via Blangsinga as our driver thought there may be slightly less stairs for my mum to come down. Not sure that was entirely true hahah though. Only 15 minutes drive from Komune Resort in Keramas or perhaps 50 minutes from Kuta/Legian or Seminyak. This waterfall was absolutely stunning. You can swim in the pool at the bottom however its really cold but refreshing. The stacked stones which I thought might have a spiritual or cultural meaning are apparently place to warn tourists to stay away from slippery areas and to help prevent erosion and collapse. There are many stairs so its a pretty sweaty walk back to the car park but just go slow and enjoy the view from each angle and vantage point. There is a small shop at the top for cool drinks and to get in to see the waterfall its just 10 000 Rupiah. My dad who is a young 69 year old did it easily however mum who has dodgy knees and tends to get a little wobbly and is not a fan of heights made it to the top of the waterfall with the help of our gorgeous driver by her side. Beau and I in our Bali hiking boots (Beau bare food and I had Havianas on) made it up and back with no problems just with typical sweat moustaches which are part and parcel of Bali.

I kind of, not really, but maybe thought I would want to do this, however when I saw it I just couldn’t. Hahahaha yes call me a chicken. Roc looked at it first and said no thanks then I dared him for 1 million Rup and he was up for it. It costs only 80 000 rup and you get an icy cold water for your tension induced dry mouth at the end. It’s located on Nusa Ceningan and there is a lovely view and infinity pool at the restaurant there to enjoy a few drinks or dinner. Follow the signs to The Abyss Zip Lining for a few seconds of dare devil fun across giant waves crashing onto deadly rocks way, way, wayyy below.
So we hunted down this new little gadget called the Fidget Spinner and haggled hard ( well as you know I’m not great at bartering ) and got them for 50 000 rup. We went in a mission through the Sanur And Sindhu Markets. I think you could go lower the more you buy and a little higher if they have lights on them. All the rage with primary aged kids and my boys LOVE them.
