4Test Your Adrenaline
Not only for sightseeing, you can do an ultimate adrenaline sport by doing jumping cliff at Mahana Cliff Jumping Point, Nusa Ceningan. Jumping cliff is the most wanted activity to do and has become the most popular attraction for travelers especially foreign travelers every time they visit Nusa Ceningan.
You just need to jump from a height of 10 or 3 meters to the sea level depending on your bravery and no need to worry since the rescue team is always ready for giving you some help near the edge of the cliff.
Shortly after jumping off the cliff, you’ll be given some float that has been tied with ropes to pull you out of the sea so you’ll be able to reach the stairs next to the cliff. If you are interested in doing so, you’ll be charged IDR 30,000 per jump.
The best time to do jumping cliff is after the full moon or after high tides in order to avoid big waves. Safety always comes first anyway so awareness and carefulness must become your top concern during your vacation.
