A sight to see!

Very nice temple and a great stop for your trip in Bali! However, tons of tourists everywhere. Wash your face in the holy water! Cool experience just too many people.

I personally recommend seeing Tanah Lot Temple at high tide to get a better feel for the remote setting of the temple on its own island. If you're there for the sunset, be aware that 2 million Bats live in the caves nearby and come out...just as the sun is setting !!! so much for the awesome sunset photo. Another... More

We last visited Tanah Lot over 15 years ago and found it magical, this time we were sadly really disappointed. It's a long drive to get there (over an hour from Sanur) and I wish we hadn't made the effort. It was overcrowded, over-rated, over-priced and dirty. We've been to Bali more than 30 times, so understand that it's not... More

Iconic Temple, lots of hawkers, but the location and the temple is very beautiful, lots of good spots to watch the sunset. I liked it.

Took quite a bit of driving to get here but it was worth the drive. This is a very picturesque temple on the Bali east coast with surf and stunning views.

It is great to see this enormous places. Lovely place, looks incredible at the sunset. Something to remember! But There are thousands of tourist, so You have to know you won't be alone there (especially in high season). Lot of shops. But nevertheles - it is worth to see it.

You can walk across to Tanah Lot when the tide is out and be blessed by holy men 😃 make sure you bring your camera to capture the beauty of this place. We went just before sunset and enjoyed a meal afterwards on the cliff overlooking Tanah Lot during sunset. The food and atmosphere was lovely.

After exploring around we went to the hotel bar and restaurant on the cliff top to watch the sunset with Tanah Lot in front. Amazing!

once you get past all the little shops that are the classic tourist trap you will really enjoy the views of the temple from ashore. Or climb up on the rock but watch the incredible surf that can get you wet. At low tide you can sort of wade over to the temple (but we didn't do that - there... More

First temple of our Bali tour and it wasn't worth the car journey. Big market selling rubbish on the walk into here and a tiny temple which you have to look at from a distance. Went here for the sunset but didn't bother hanging around for it.
