Almost lost - this beautiful temple on the sea. I came here once 20 years ago. So different now with the crowds and endless markets but still beautiful. Felt a little saddened watching lovely Balinese Hindus giving their offerings and praying amongst countless noisy people who seem to forget what it's all about. If you can remain quiet and calm...

The only thing nice about this... More

This temple is located on the ocean, there are two smaller temples as well within walking distance. Breathtaking views, and the local market is the cheapest and has the best bargains in all of Bali. One of the highlights of our trip!

Although a bit overcrowded during evenings, this place offers one of the most scenic views in Bali! Highly recommend dropping in a couple minutes before the sunset to reserve a good spot for yourself to capture the splendid views!!

It's a very great experience to watch Kecak show while watching sunset and beautiful ocean view from the top of the hill in Uluwatu. Unforgettable moment!
