Best time for photos
Of course you want to capture some stunning photos of your visit to Tibumana waterfall. I can give you a few advices so you won’t be disappointed. The first tip is to arrive as early as possible. Preferably around 8AM or if you can make it even earlier, the better! There are a few reasons for this. Most tourists aren’t early morning birds, so you will have the chance of only seeing another photographer, instagrammer or a local enjoying the silence before the storm.
Tibumana waterfall isn’t a hidden gem anymore, unfortunately. So if you arrive after 9AM or even later, then be prepared that you have to share this beautiful waterfall with other travelers and tourists. In 2020 we have visited this waterfall again and even saw weddings, or wedding shoots going on!!
So, if you’re coming to Tibumana waterfall to get the best photos, make sure to arrive early. Sunrise or at least early in the morning is the best timing to take the best photos. Morning light is always much better than the harsh light at the middle of the day. The shadows on the water or direct sunlight on the waterfall will blow out the whites. And shadows on the pool of Tibumana waterfall will look a bit weird as well. As if there are dark spots which you can’t really fix with editing.
Another reason to come early, actually to any Bali waterfall there is, is because of the heat. In the morning it isn’t that humid yet, and you always have to walk some stairs before you arrive at the waterfall. Enough reasons to start exploring early!
