Uluwatu Temple, Pecatu

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. For travelers who use our online itinerary creator, Pecatu holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Uluwatu Temple and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • This place is really good for sunset. In addition to the attractive the, the temple and the statue also add to the appeal of this place. The monkeys also love to roam around this place.

  • The place is of immense beauty. The surroundings, the cliff beaches are exceptionally beautiful. Absolutely loved stunning views from every angle. You have to be careful with monkeys around. They are attracted to flowers and everything they think they can eat. You have a kind of a long walk along the top of the beach cliff. So worth a visit.
  • Great place. Views are spectacular. Not expensive to enter. Local fire dancing which needs booking separately. Everyone helpful and relaxing to see. Short walk from car park at top. Visit at sunset gives great photos. Toilets here also. Plenty of small shops to get drinks and gifts. Clean and tidy and paths are well maintained. Can get busy near the temples. Lots of staff speak English also and good signs for directions.
  • Must visit place in Bali. Good for spend one-two hours there to walk around trample. Nice view and this is very special place for Balinese so be prepare and dress accordingly. Just be careful with monkey as they hunting for the food and beverages from tourist and some time can be quite aggressive. Keep safe your bags from monkey.
  • You can see a fine view. I am satisfied with it. There is no monkey's interference more than I thought. The temple is crowded with people. But it is well worth it. There is a good course to walk along the cliff. If you love nature, make sure to take a cliff walk. Let's invest in something worth more than eat and drink.
  • Nice temple on a cliff. Very warm there. You need good condition. Many monkeys. Take care your belongings. Good view over the ocean
