Your feet might get wet so flip flops are a good idea. There are steep stone steps to a nice cove from the garden area which is nice... More

Tanah Lot is very pretty, and can be viewed from several different locations, on a level, or from above, but it is very, very touristy. I'm not sure that it would be worth coming here for sunset - you'd be better off visiting and then heading to Old Man's.

Tanah lot temple is more of a place to buy cheap bintang tshirts and tourist tat than experience any sort of balinese culture. Some nice photo opportunities but this place was cash in a long time ago.

Pay to see a sacred snake. Pay to get a blessing. Really? Take a look. Snap some pics. Wonder up to it and tick it off. Too crowded in the afternoon so go in the morning.

We were expecting to have a great time there as heard its name so much. It was a chaotic entry as the taxi driver left us on the wrong site of the main entrance. Then, we entred in but NO maps, No sign, NO guide to get info. It was very dirty, even the Main areas of Temple. We thought... More

Arrived around 4.30. Plenty of time to look around the various sites and the tide was low so got to walk out to the main temple and have a blessing from the fresh water spring by the monks. Crowded but bearable. Sit in the little warungs from about 5.45 to get the sun going down on the temple. Bali.

Wish we didn't waste our time going here. There is not much to see. The temple, a few shops and restaurants and vendors is about it. If you see pictures of people actually climbing to the temple, I don't know how they did that because you can't. You just see it from a distance but you can't get very close... More

Every visit I always go here. One of my favourites, so peaceful and beautiful. Find a quite spot and sit and enjoy the view. Markets and food there are great as well.
