The ttraction itself is beautiful! BUT the shops, businesses, etc around it is only annoying and reduces the overall atmosphere.... But still 4 stars for a wonderful location. We drove on our own to Tanah lot, easy, quick - no problems...

A great and cooling place with nice views and sea. A great place to take a picture with water provided you go all the way to the end of the land, nearer to the beach.

Although location of the temple is nice - on an island - it has been made into a real tourist destination with a lot of shops and restaurants surrounding the place. If you want to reach the island, be sure to check the tides, because you cant always go there. I assume it is always crowded.

We ere there in the evening & many people were walking on the link between the temple & the mainland. The waves are impressive in size.

High entrance fee (60,000IDR), and the area is crowded with tourists and touts- but the uniqueness of this sea temple is undeniable, and especially beautiful set against the sunset and crashing waves. There is a daily Kecak dance performance in the evening at 6.30pm (if it isn't raining) within the grounds as well.

Tanah Lot is a rock formation off the Indonesian island of Bali , the temple sits on a large offshore rock which has been shaped continuously over the years by the ocean tide. It's a good point to watch sunset ,but it's a little dirty enviroment, It is the most important temple in Bali island, ,so when travel to Bali,... More

Had a great visit to this different temple. It's on an island and only accessible by wading through water to the island. There are different parts of the temple as one is on the 'island' and another on a cliff on the mainland and another further on. Truly magnificent. Only problem is there were too many people jostling for space.
