We arrived there and could see markets for miles but once you walked through the view out to the ocean and the sunset was worth the trip. A amazing temple built on cliff faces provided unique lookouts.

Biggest temple in Bali I guess. Terribly hot sun so you need an umbrella. Go down to the beach if you wanted to. Very big area for tourists.

A must see. Beautiful temple, beautiful cliffs, beautiful beach, beautiful garden. Sarong not required. Rocks can be slippery, so a good pair of shoes are recommended.

We mad the mistake of going on a feast day. The traffic going and coming was terrible. But the sights of all the people going with their votive offerings more than made up for it. The whole site is fascinating and truly beautiful once you are through the market area! As it was a feast day we could only view... More

When I stepped on, that breeze remind me of my childhood. 1998, quite far from now but that feeling still same. Pls keep it clean and tidy as the old time! Love&Respect 😇

Bali turned out to be such a magnificent treasure house of ancient Hindu temples - with so much history, heritage and culture. Visiting Tanah Lot was a not-to-be-missed experience. Perched on a little rock a few meters from the mainland, the temple is a grand specimen of Balinese architecture and offers a breath-taking view. Only the adventurous brave-hearts waded through...

Tanah Lot Temple. This is a must see when in Bali....worth the drive. Beautiful breathtaking scenery and a spectacular temple built on a rock island. We went early morning to avoid the heat and crowds that mass on sunset and took some amazing photos. Was definitely a highlight on our trip. Will be visiting again in March with family.

Like many places in Bali which once had a magical beauty , Tanah Lot is now a commercial trap and less of a sacred place. The tourists are harassed constantly by hawkers of various things. The temple itself is still quite beautiful but the rest of the area is chaotic .

We were here at high tide so unfortunately couldnt get over to the temple, but that didnt detract at all from the experience. Its stunning to see and if you manage to find a quiet patch of grass it can actuall be very peaceful. The view really is so amazing and its worth all the hype. There are plenty of... More
