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.

  • We visited in April. The weather was sunny. Superb views above the cliffs at the southern end of the island of the gods. See Kecak dance along with the sunset. The audience so much that huddle rooms and nearly filled the dance area. Way back to the hotel a little bogged down because many are heading to the city together after the completion of the show. One of the excellent destinations to visit.

  • Around 25km from center Kuta to the South, you will find this place at the end of the road. The temple is based on the top of a cliff, you can see so many strong waives from the walking wall. A specta...  more »

  • Beauty of sea from the mountain is just awesome. There is a monkey forest too. You can enjoy the amazing sunset in the sea. Very popular place for the visitors. It is difficult to describe the beauty of this place or can nt be represented through camera lens. You can only enjoy the real beauty through your eyes. Recommended
  • Not my favourite spot. But beautiful nonetheless. 30k Rupiah entrance pp and there is parking fee. You get sarongs to wear as you need to have knees covered. Be careful of the monkeys. They throw cellphones off the Cliffside. So just hide your belongings, food, glasses etc. You can walk the edges of the cliff with walkways (they are in direct sun so take sunscreen) and take some nice pics. You can walk on the left or right side of the main temple area. You cannot access the inner courtyard or temple at all but can take some pics from far away. It's quite the walk around the edges, but worth it to see the beauty and the waves crashing down below. Very touristy, so you will need patience to get a good shot without other people in it.
  • Entrance fee: 30k/per person. Everyone have to wear sarong when visit here. Best to go before 3pm. Be careful with the monkeys here. Watch your sunglasses, cameras and phones, earrings, etc.. The incredible view will shock you. Should watch the show, 100k per person but worth it.
  • It's really really cool. Standing highly near the blue ocean. There are many travel guides, so if you come from abroad, you don't need to worry. Comfy yourself. Enjoy the view. Oh, and in the evening, Kecak dance is held there while you can see the sun goes down. In some spots, there are monkeys. Be careful with your belongings.
  • Very beautiful and amazing ocean here. I can't believe i'm still in Indonesia. I looks like another country. If you wear something short clothes, you must wear a fabric for cover your body. And last not the least, there are very many little cute and naughty monkey. You must be carefully, pay attention for your stuffs and your children. Do not give these monkey food. Enjoy your holiday 😁😀👍😎
