Tanah Lot temple, about 45 minutes from Kuta offers mesmerizing views of temple by the sea with waves hitting the coast, producing beautiful white foam all around. The temple can be accessed by a submerged pathway which is an adventure in itself. There are several lookout points and a beautiful park. I am told by the guide that the place... More

Though Tanah Lot Temple is located quite far from populated areas like Nusa Dua, Kuta, Legian, Seminyak and Benoa but I fully recommend for those who really wanted to capture a fantastic sunset scene on a clear weather evening. You will never regret to travel from Nusa Dua to Tanah Lot Temple going thru heavy traffic.... This is one of... More

I suggest going to the temple at sunset. The sunset makes a beautiful backdrop. On the walk down to the temple there are markets and a small snake park. I suggest taking small change around $10,000 to $20,000 for the "donations" you pay for a "blessing" or to view the natural spring water on the rock and see the snake... More

This was literally our last stop as part of a 3 week tour of South East Asia (we went to the airport immediately after sunset), and I can't think of a better "departing experience" to say goodbye to Indonesia with.

Went here for the sunset. We couldn't get to the temple since it was high tide - but the surrounding is great and has a nice market too.

This is one of Bali's great spiritual and Mythological locations and a visit here is truly worthwhile. Like with all Balinese Temples ensure you are appropriately dressed in a Sarong. You are permitted a Camera and there are some wonderful stone carvings to be seen.

A really beautiful place to see a unique temple. Nice views and photo opportunities. Attracts many tourists. Good for all ages, does involve some walking. Can walk down to water to view temple closer, but can't go inside temple. Can also view a "holy snake" in the cave for a small fee, and pet if you dare. Lots of shopping... More
