The Besikah temple, Lovina and Tanahlot are main tourist destinations in Bali. Disadvantage is that you are not alone there unless you visit them early morning are late afternoon. Tanahlot is a "must see" and with low tide in the afternoon you may walk around on the beach below. There are plenty of photos available and you probably will shoot... More

Went to Tanah Lot for sunset. Even though it was kinda cloudy that day, but the views were stunning with high tide. The temples are very nice as well. It was a Sunday and the place was not very crowded. Just that there was a long queue for the holy springs experience.

It is an incredible area but crowded with tourists. It is easy enough. To find a spot for yourself to enjoy the temple, particularly at sunset. Such a spiritual area. A have to visit kind of tourist site.

We went to Tanah Lot Temple in the afternoon and explored the Temple, watched the procession of offerings made by locals, it was amazing but quite busy. A beautiful place.

Went here from Ubud...it's about 90 minutes away. Good view...interesting to watch waves crash. Super crowded...and I may in the minority here...not really worth the long trip. We found most temple sites in Bali to be very redundant and not worth the crazy drive/traffic to get there. However, if you want to go to ONE dramatic site....this would be it...and... More

Set your destination agenda to Tanah Lot, whenever you have time to go vacation in Bali. You will never get disappointed. Every single picture shoot from any side, it will create excellent images in your photo album. The wave is friendly, the mystic smells are very strong, that's what I can call unique selling point.

Tanah lot is a beautiful temple set at the edge of water. During high tides, the temple gets cut off from the main access, so would recommend checking the tide timings before heading out. Though the main temple is off limits for tourists, it is quite nice to walk around and even get your feet wet in the water if... More

A beautiful sea-rock temple which can be be accessed only during the low-tide. Do visit during sunset between 5 to 6pm. The view is amazing!

A must visit place if you are visiting Bali. Visit during sunset. You will love the view. Photographers dont miss the place. But it will be too crowded. You cant avoid the crowd
