Bali Swings Guide Map
There are so many Bali Swing Location that it’s hard to keep track of them all, but these are the most popular.
Real Bali Swing
The most popular swing park is Real Bali Swing, located 15 km from Ubud. They have 15 different single swings to try, along with three tandem swings so you can be scared witless alongside your loved one. There are also 4 large stones to pose on (yes, posing on stones is a thing). They also have 6 nests to pose in. And yes, posing in nests is a thing too. They are quite artistic, made from branches and fauna but mostly have a lined interior for comfort. Bali Swing operates a free shuttle operating from Ubud, but make sure the entry fee you are paying is confirmed upfront. They also sell package tours which include other activities like rafting, elephant rides and chasing waterfalls, but these tend to be quite expensive compared to hiring your own driver and making your own custom itinerary.
Tegalalang Rice Terrace Swings
Probably the most easily recognisable stand-alone Bali swings are the ones at Tegalalang Rice Terraces. Tegalalang has been a very popular tourist destination for many years, thanks to its terraced rice fields spread throughout a valley 9 km north of Ubud and 40 km from Seminyak. A few steps down from the roadside at Tegalalang village is the most accessible swing. It’s pretty easy to find. As you enter Tegalalang village with the souvenir shops on the left and the cafes on the downward side of the valley is the first swing just as you see rice terraces come into view.
Prices for the swings are pretty dynamic as the competition heats up with more and more swings being rapidly created to meet the high demand. Across the far side of the valley are two more swings with a very different experience, as they are situated over a much steeper part of the valley, making for some quite dramatic photos to feed the Instagram account.
The hike is worth it though, as the view from the far side of the terraces is magnificent. It was only a few months ago before the swings were constructed that hiking through the rice terraces was the main attraction at Tegalalang. You get strapped into a harness before swinging out across the valley and be sure not to underestimate the heights you reach — the local guides can be pretty enthusiastic with the energy in which they propel you out for maximum fear fun.
Terrace River Pool Swing
Before getting to the swings at Tegalalang Rice Terraces, there is another operator called Terrace River Pool Swings. It’s easy to get confused between the two, but the guide map in this post clearly shows the location of all the swing parks in this guide. This swing park is becoming more popular with a number of swings of varying heights, plus couples swings and nests to get your Instagram-worthy holiday photos.
Wanagiri Hidden Hills Swings
As Bali swings became incredibly popular, the locals at Wanagiri Hidden Hills decided to get in on the action too, with several swings, nests and overlooks being built with a stunningly beautiful view across Lake Danau Buyan.
You can’t miss the platforms made from bamboo and the often very artistic swings along the left-hand side of the main road that comes from Bedugul.
There’s a fair bit of competition among the locals to lure you into their swings and platforms, but you must admire their ability to adapt to a quickly evolving tourism trend and create the swings, nests and platforms that clearly attract tourists and provide an income for the enterprising locals.
