Jumping off a bridge because falling off a cliff is not something you intend to do... jumping off a bridge you wanted to do.

Jumping off a bridge would have to be better because it was a choice where the other was an accident.

I would say jumping off a bridge is better, because you most likely will fall into water, and if it's deep enough you won't hurt yourself that bad.

If you can swim well you'll be to land in no time at all.

Sir, I say falling off a cliff is better for a few reasons.

For one, if you're suicidal, it'll be the best 3 to 20 seconds of your life, depending on how high the cliff is; even better then sex.

Secondly, if you're not suicidal, you have good chances you'll fall into an ocean, and if it's deep enough you won't hurt yourself that bad.

If you can swim well, you'll be at land in no time at all.

But most cliffs are created by land fractures and clashes, and their base is always riddled with rather pointy rocks.

I'm going to refute this for both here and the one above. If you fall for long enough, the force of hitting the water will be the same has hitting concrete.

The terminal velocity for a pencil-diving human is around 300 mph, which equates to around 44 feet per second. That gives you less than 0.15 seconds for you to push a column of water 6 ft by 2 ft (depending on how thin you are, and sort of rounding off the width of shoulders to the thin depth of the body) out of your way.

The impact alone will kill you.

I rather not do any but Jumping off the bridge you will be able to maybe move around so you don't get hurt as much or where you land.
