Uluwatu Temple was the first Temple I went to visit in Bali and it did not disappoint. The sea views views were absolutely incredible and we stayed to watch the Kecak dance during the sun set. An unforgettable experience.

Beautiful Place. Excellent view. We were not allowed to go inside the temple because some religious ceremony was going on. The Kachak Dance show was incredible. This show depicts Few stories of Ramayana.

This place is amazing and the sweeping views of the coastline are stunning. If you there by yourself, allot the time to go on a long hike following the Bali equivalent of the Great Wall along the coast. Not arduous and a lot of fun....More
