Uluwatu temple is a picturesque temple with beautiful landscape. The sea looks tranquil as well as menacing at times. The best part is the Kecak dance, where music is by the sound created by the troupe. With the story taken from Ramayana, it was a great visual treat. The live programme was something no visitor should miss, I advise.

Fantastic scenery! Walk all over the place and enjoy the view. Be very careful from the monkeys, they took our sunglasses! A must see.

Beautiful cliff views. Fun to see the mischievous monkeys. Super hot and crowded so if you plan to see the sunset fire dance go early, pack your own water in to the temple grounds and bring a fan and a LOT of patience for the swarms of Chinese tourists.

Cannot recommend this place enough. It is sacred and so beautiful. You really feel the culture and history around you. We were fortunate enough to be able to watch the traditional dance and wow that was an experience. Enjoyed this place more than I thought I would. Would recommend getting there early in order to buy your ticket. The views... More

Scenic view from the cliff. There is akin pathway along the cliff which would give you magnificent view of the temple. Should be included in the Bali travel list.

Don't miss the sunset there. Go quiet early if you want to see the show. Take the stairs up to the temple to see an inspiring view of the ocean. I rented a motorbike and went there and enjoyed the show.

There isn't much to see besides a nice view of the cliff. The entry fee was 30,000 rp per person. And it was mostly filled with tour grps.
