Bali is home to literally thousands of pura (temple). Tanah Lot temple is one of the most iconic and unique temple with scenic view especially at sunset. During the low tide, you may see a queue of visitors waiting to take a sip of the holy water from a fresh water outlet at the foot of the temple. Apart from... More

We went mid day to avoid the sunset crowds which we thought can be compensated by going to Ku-de-ta having sunset drinks and dinner. Stunning seaview from the Temple side and it is super nice walk along on the right hand side cliff to have a look. We didn't go through the market to shop for souvenirs. And mainly at... More

Great attraction.. but here are our tips: Firstly, it might be relevant to note that a member of our group who was one of the few of us who had never been to Bali before INSISTED on organising this day-trip (first mistake?). The driver of a bus that he lined up (there was a group of 15 for a birthday)... More

Thousands of people lining up on cliff tops overlooking the ocean and the temples, then when the sun went down millions of tiny bats come out of the caves. Lovely outside restaurant on the cliff top with roving musicians singing to the customers made the whole experience special.

This is my first time to "Tanah Lot", many said should come to see the sunset. We came during daytime, I was marvel by the beautiful scenery here. May be most people come during evening, so it was not so crowded during our visit. We were able to take many pictures in different angles. The temple is on top of... More

Well worth a look, but it can get very busy, especially around sunset. You have to pass a fair few small shops before you get to the temples and even then there are hawkers on the beach. For a donation, you can get cleansed, which means you can go up 8 steps.

We visited the temple around 5 pm ,after looking at photos and reading reviews elsewhere. The temple is on the shore and can be seen closer in the evening when the tide is low. The road leading to it is fairly long and packed with souvenir, clothes and other shops. The temple itself was unimpressive. We could not see much... More

This is a lovely Temple, located on the water. Only fault is that you have to walk thru all the market stalls to get to the temple. We were getting harrassed right down to the ocean with hawkers trying to sell us items

Very pretty, worth visiting, definitely different to other temples. Touristic, so take your time to be able to wait for the right spot for great pics.

We are not so interested to visit the temple. But we were attracted by the sea view! The wave, the sunset is really very nice! I love it.
