What a beautiful mesmerising place, must visit during sunset. I wondered what was all the fuss is about. But once I was there I was lost in the beauty of this place. The beach is magnificent and to watch the sunset was a gift. The place is filled with tourist, unlike what many reviewers had written I was not once... More

It's a place that mustn't me be missed when in Bali. I never get tired visiting it every time I'm in the island. It is Hindu temple, yes, but it is more than that. Legends, myths, history and archaeology entertwine if you try to demystify this place. It is best experienced than explained.

Another must visit in Bali. Come when the tides are low so you can walk to the 'island' temple. I didn't make it there on time. Nice place to be when sunset also. A little bit crowded though.

This was on my list of places to visit though I was not keen on getting up and personal. Managed to snap some mandatory photos of the beautiful sight and left before the crowds started. The view was breathtaking but I feel the area should be protected and preserved, not modernised and commercialised. I guess thats why I don't feel... More

We visited during November when it was a little bit cloudy but just half an hour before sunset the backgroound sky lit up like a huge painting and temple appeared as dark shadow in foreground. Its very unique location in sea with surrounding waves and sun adds to the vibe. We took a 180* walk around the temple to get... More

I visited Tanah Lot 25 years ago. Now with a family, I've returned. I was apprehensive about if the magic was still in this beautiful place. Many tourists, but, at this time of the year not excessive considering where we are to be honest. 'To' took some great pictures of our family, before we went to a cliff top cafe... More

Tanah lot is a temple near the beach/sea. Nice scenery and definetely worth a visit and some photo takings. There is a market near it that sells paintings, handmade souveniers etc. Enjoyed the visitation and the view of nature. There is a snake park too that has many large snakes in it and it was interesting as we experienced the... More

another Bali attraction apart from Uluwatu temple worth a short visit just for the site of the temple sitting out in the ocean with the strong waves bashing all around it. Good for photography with temple as backdrop.
