I wouldn’t recommend this. The water is not deep enough from that height and you will most likely injure yourself. There are several signs saying that you shouldn’t jump from the cliff, and Indonesia is not well-known for advertising danger and put up signs everywhere.
So, I would urge you to take this seriously as it really is dangerous.
