Are the Bali swings in Ubud safe?
The Bali swing accident and deaths are common topics amongst some travellers.
There has been a death at the swings and this seems to be a common question among tourists about the safety of the swings. There was a French tourist that died on this activity. But this not represents safety here.
Take it from me that the swings are very safe and you’re in good hands with the guys that work there. If you’ve been on other tours in Ubud or Bali, you may expect them to be a little rough around the edges. But this activity is well maintained.
so to answer your question: Are the swings in Bali safe and are you secured in? Take it from me they are completely safe and you are well looked after.
A lot of the women turn up in very fashionable dresses for that perfect photo, with the surreal jungle backdrop. However, don’t worry if you haven’t got one with you, there’s a dress rental available on site!
You can rent a dress for a couple of dollars whilst you enjoy the swings, then you just have to give it back when you’re finished!
You need a Southeast Asia packing list to see what items you need for places like Bali.
Best time to go?
The best time to visit the Jungle swing in Bali is in the morning between (10am-11: 45 am). You should arrive at the swing before it opens. This way you will have to the best time and a free roam on all the swings before the tourists get there.
As the day goes at the Bongkasa Jungle swing, more and more tourists pour in to get part of the action. so for the question when is the best time to visit? This is why I say get there for the morning.
For example, 2 pm in the day is just unbearable! the ques for the swings are crazy. You can be waiting 30 minutes just to get on one of the swings.
If you want more of the best Instagram locations in Bali, you need to visit the Jungle Fish Ubud for a day pass.
Side note – Are you visiting Nusa Penida after Ubud? You should check out the best things to do Nusa Penida if you’re heading over to this amazing island.
How to get to there?
Here is how to get to the Bali swing from Ubud;
- Free transport provided by the swings company –There is a free bus to the Ubud swing from the centre of Ubud.
- Scooter rental in Ubud – We used the scooter and personally I think this is the best way of getting around Ubud if you are comfortable at driving scooters. You can rent a scooter for $5 a day. And fill it with a full tank of gas for $2. There is also free parking at the Tegalalang swing.
- Taxi – You can, of course, take a taxi to the Ubud swing and back, however, this will most likely be the most expensive option.
- Walk it through Ubud town centre – You could walk it if you wanted, but it would take you around 2 hours. This would be a great way to see the best things in Ubud up close and personal.

We were the first ones there and had a choice to go on all the best swings first, so I would recommend getting there early as possible for the Ubud swing opening time.
It started getting crowded at 1 pm as the day went on and this caused waiting time for the swings. If you get there as soon as it opens you should have a good 30-minute to enjoy whichever swing you want on the swings. check out the Ubud swing in Bali opening times

Bali Swing Review and Instagram Photography
This is some of the best photography of the swings that we took;
The swing is an amazing jungle setting and this is why it’s one of the most popular things to do in Bali on your visit. The green forestry is stunning and it’s a surreal feeling to be swinging up to the top of the trees.
Interested in travel photography? You should check out the Panasonic Lumix FZ82 review post. Which is my awesome travel camera!
Another awesome place to visit near the swing is the amazing Bali monkey forest. A sacred forest in Ubud that you can meet and feed free-roaming Balinese monkeys!
This amazing tourist point in Bali is a sure way to stop having a boring life and doing something a little different 😀
All these rocks and nests at the Bali swing get very crowded as the day goes on, these pics are awesome but you will have to queue for a quick picture if you visit the swings later in the day!
On the image above, you can see the restaurant at the bottom of the Bali swing adventure park. This is where you have to walk down to grab your buffet lunch.
The guys that work there are very helpful when taking pics, they do have professional photographers taking photos that you can buy. However, if you want a picture on your phone, you can just ask them to take a quick snap and they’re more than happy to that for you.
It’s a very romantic scene and if you’re on a honeymoon to Bali, then you need to come here to get some romantic photos that you can take back home with you.
One of the places best in Bali for Instagram and chilling out is the Jungle Fish Ubud infinity pool. This is also one of the best places to stay in Ubud if you’re on a luxury holiday.
