Very good site, great views off the cliff. However, the monkey scam just sucks the happiness out of what otherwise would be a great experience. Shame!

Cliffhanger of a temple
Sep. 2020
My top favorite in entire Bali trip is this temple of the cliff overlooking the Ocean.
The walk along the cliff to reach the temple is thrilling and amazing. The Kechak performance in the evening is very entertaining too. The epic Ramayana is played in this live entertainment. Watch out for monkeys along the way, doing some monkey business :D

Okay, but Tanah Lot Temple is better.
Nov. 2020
This is one of the top places that you are supposed to go in Bali. I disagree. The temple is okay, there are much prettier ones in Bali. For me, the most beautiful part of this temple is that it stands on top of a cliff with absolutely beautiful views of the beach below with the rolling waves crashing against the cliffs. Now, all that being said, I also know that Uluwatu is supposed to be great at sunset, we were here during the day. However, there are so many places to see sunsets in Bali.

I much prefer Tanah Lot Temple. It is much closer to where most people stay in Canggu and Seminyak.

Beautiful views of the South Bali coast and then some!
Dec. 2019
Perched on the cliffs of South Bali, this cultural site boasts some spectacular views! Stay for the Kecak dance and sunset. You'll be happy you did!
