Uluwatu Temple, Pecatu
(4/5 based on 6,000+ reviews on the web)
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. Use our Pecatu travel itinerary planner to arrange your visit to Uluwatu Temple and other attractions in Pecatu.

  • The temple itself is not impressive. They offer a traditional dance show with the music which is ok. The most interesting part of this sight is the view of the temple along the high cliffs. Watching the waves hit the rocks. Best time to visit would be sunset. Very nice view of the ocean. Lots of monkey roam around, so keep your valuables safe, they steal. Sunglasses hats etc.
  • Beautiful breath taking temple. Definite must visit place in Kuta Bali. Make sure you go to see the Kecak dance at 6pm, it is the story of Rama Seetha depicted through traditional Balinese dance
  • It is a good point for the sunset., the fantastic oveview of the sea scenery. we also met a monkey and it keep its eye on us. I am a little afraid of it! it is worthy to vist there.
  • Nice setting to watch the sunset. There are nicer temple out there, but discover the small path leading to a big meadow (without monkeys). Wonderful view over the ocean and down the cliffs! Worth it!
  • Amazing temple with many beautiful angles and spot for taking pics including Kecak dance but not so "thrill" venue for the kids thou. :-D
