Discover Bali's spiritual side by visiting Uluwatu Temple, offering some of the finest ocean views on the island. One of six holiest shrines in Bali, this structure sits on the edge of rocky cliffs rising dramatically over the sea's foaming waves. Much of the current shrine probably dates back to the 11th century, when a Javanese sage expanded and improved a preexisting but much smaller structure. A band of monkeys inhabits the temple--watch out they don't snatch your purse or other belongings. Though non-Hindu visitors cannot enter the inner temple, they're free to hike around the area.

  • Nice walk over the cliff to reach the area of the temple (paid, but not expensive at all)! We can approach the Temple because only for Hindu ceremony! Attention to macaques, because here they are very fond of glasses and caps (a part of the path passes under the branches of the trees) to do, but rather to the opening, because very touristy!

  • incredible view. the whole area of the temple is gorgeous. do make sure you see the kecak fire dance at the sunset. amazing experience. one thing you won't hear people say is that you actually don't get to see the main temple only from two other cliffs on it's left and right but they are not so close. all in all it's worth a visit
