whilst I love Bali with a passion this temple was sat amongst a tourist market. When finally getting to the temple it was a little overrated and the tourists have made the section of beach it is on highly unsanitary.

This review is not about Temple itself, it's about the atmosphere.This place is too commercial to stay spiritual, it kills everything. Mobbed even off-season. Best avoid it.

The very best place. I wanted to stay there. The only thing is that there is a lot of garbage..a little cleaning wouldn't be bad.

One of the best memories from our visit to Bali Must see! There is a taste of the ancient culture & amazing views of the island temple by the sea. Also giant snakes & other wildlife you can get up close to see & enjoy. There are also lots of market stalls where you can barter for bargains which are... More

To get good view you have to run through a long gauntlet of pushy shop keepers and cope with a lot of steep steps. We last visited Tanah lot temple some 25 years ago when it was much less commercial and more spiritual.

The place is so beautiful, must visit, and has a beautiful scenery. The distance from parking area until the temple is not close. You have to walk a bit far through the market. I think it is a must visit place especially for your first time visit to Bali. The place is so beautiful and very unique.

In our first visit to Bali sometime back, we didn’t get chance to visit the Tanah Lot. But this time we make it Tanah Lot as one place that we must visit and we managed to visit. This is a beautiful place! We were sitting and watching the high tide. My wife loves the scenery. We paid 20,000 to the... More

Tanah Lot, famous in Bali as the Sunset Temple. See the sunset beyond the black lava towers of the sacred 16th century temple, built on a lava rock 200 meters off shore. Only can access to the temple when low tide. You may need to check with them when is the low tide before you make this visit. If possible... More
