Create an itinerary including Tanah Lot Temple
Built onto a giant offshore rock, Tanah Lot Temple remains one of the more venerated Hindu structures with strong ties to Balinese mythology. One of seven significant sea temples spread across Bali's coastline, this shrine is allegedly the work of Dan Hyang Nirartha, a 16th-century religious figure and traveler who founded the island's Shaivite priesthood. Though you can walk to the rock during low tide, keep in mind that non-Balinese visitors cannot enter the temple itself. The site--one of the most photographed in Bali--draws huge crowds at sunset, when soft light bathes the area and creates a nearly magical atmosphere.

  • We watched a stunning sunset here. The best time to visit is after 5 PM when it's not so hot anymore. Visually the position of the temple depends on the water level.

  • The place that offered the true realization of strong ocean waves thrashing into the rocks and make you realize how much impact they have created over the years, the nice wind making you feel the ocean freshness and relax your mind, the sunset view that calms and disconnects you from rest of the world, the clockwork, discipline and togetherness of millions of bats which will come out of the caves underneath were you stand the moment sun sets. Just an amazing place for spending the evening and doing nothing just soak in the ecosystem around you...
  • Phenomenal experience. A temple on a remote rock of the mainland, reachable only on for during low tide. One cannot get into the temple though, except the locals for their specific worship A temple full of history and myth over the spread of Hinduism. The place is very well maintained and is very tourist friendly Am unforgettable, unmissable experience
  • Beautiful and Amazing. Definitely worth seeing. The locals selling things and requesting donations etc gets a little much though but definitely a must see. Make sure you walk across to both temples though. You can't actually enter either but you might only think there is one but there's actually 2. Plenty of places to take photos and watch the sunset.
  • Pretty damn cool. If I remember hard to get to and far away. Totally worth the effort while you're on Bali. We went earliest in the day so we could return to another part of the island way before sundown and not worry about getting stranded. Awesome photography spot as I'm sure that is apparently. I don't think there were tour guides. We just roughed it and had our own adventure walking around and exploring the coastal area.
  • Amazing and unique place, definitely must visit. The scenery is absolutely gorgeous. The entrance fee is 60k + parking 4k. It’s better to take raincoat or umbrella, because it’s usually raining there. There are a lot of souvenir stores there and cafes. Best time to visit is before the sunset, better to come earlier to see the place (2 hours is enough) and then meet the sunset in the cafe right on the cliff.
