3.7/5 based on 260+ reviews on the web
Visit Pura Goa Lawah for a chance to see a quivering mass of leathery bats covering the cave's ceiling and walls. Several Hindu shrines and pagodas surround the cave's entrance, built in the typical many-tiered Balinese style. In addition to the colony of fruit bats, locals believe this cave also houses the mythical serpent Naga Basuki. Although you are unlikely to catch a glimpse of him, you may spot a large python feeding on the fruit bats.

  • We were in the middle of some rituals entering the temple. After seeing this and taking some pics we went to left and could see the thousands of bats in the cave. Nice spot, low price. 
  • Goa Lawah is a small temple not far from Padang Bai. Most interesting was actually to check out in the cave inside the temple which is filled with bats-fascinating:-)

  • I was lucky to visit on a day when there were ceremonies. People were first praying in front of the sea. Then moving across to the temple. The bats were also very interesting to see. 
  • This is one of sacred temple in east part of Bali, for Balinese people who wants to go to Lombok they will be stop in here for worshipping before continue their trip. In this place also have a lot of seafood restaurants with cheap price and kindly staff and good taste of food.
  • The bats cave is scary! But worth seeing !!
  • Loved, peaceful
  • This is the temple with the cave full of bats. There was some sort of ceremony going while I was there and was able to see how they conduct their ceremony.
