This is a very touristy attraction but the views of the ocean and templs are amazing. Along our trip we purchased item from some vendors. Had a friend take a picture with a large snake, drank from a holy fountain. This place was as amazing as it was sacred for the people of Indonesia.

Well.. short story. 60k rupia entry fee per head incl kids over 13 just for starters at the 3 lame gateway drive through plus the parking fee of course. Walk past the pesty stall owners trying to sell you this and that, the bus loads of Chinese tourists and even more stall's with enormous rip off pricing you may reach... More

What a shame for the Indonesian people to allow such a sacred and beautiful place to be ruined. It is filled with litter. All sorts of bottles, shoes, clothing items, straws, human poo as well! The rocks were filled with filth. There wasn't one centimetre without rubbish. It wasn't a serene or peaceful visit at all. Crowds just before sunset... More

This is probably the most iconic and frequented spot amongst all the tourists in Bali -- as all other reviewers have mentioned in their blogs, this is a beautiful temple complex, kissed by the waves of the Indian Ocean. The actual temple is mostly inaccessible to the common tourist but we did see a few enthusiastic folks wade into the... More

As the other temples, this one has its own attraction, and you have to take your time to walk all around. As it happens with these attractions there's nothing to do that walk, seat down for a minutes and enjoy the view...and that's it. IT LACKS a lot of touristic infraestructure to make tourist stay there more than expecte; take... More

The temple is located on a small ,hill descending towards the sea (Indian Ocean) Due to constant onslaught of... More

Built on an offshore rock, this temple has a mesmerizing view. This temple is a must see when in Bali. Touched by huge waves with sun setting in the background, this temple looked like some movie set up. One has to be there physically to feel the place, can't be explained in words. One thing is be sure not to... More
