We went here to catch the fire dance. We got one of the last seats. However, people were still being allowed to enter. They were made sit around the stage, it got to the point where they were sitting so close to the chanters on the stage that they had to be careful not to touch them. See pictures included. The view was nice, though the traffic to get there was pretty bad. Was later told that the fire dance in Ubud was a better show.

Allow an hour to walk around the temple grounds ( sarongs are provided) and beware of monkeys pilfering water bottles and sunglasses. Go promptly at 5pm to buy tickets to the show and fire dance that starts at 6 pm. Seating is not reserved but people wandered in after the performance had started and were squeezed in.
It’s not the greatest thing ever to see and visit but we are glad we made the trip and felt it was atmospheric and very beautiful particularly at sunset.

A lovely temple to see, right by the ocean. Beautiful pictures to be taken. So green and pretty although the naughty little monkeys like to take your personal things and run, hold onto them tight. Walk was okay even in the sticky humid heat. We had a tour guide who was full of wisdom and stories, such a lovely man. Thank you

Great view, heaps of photo opportunities. Easy walk but can get super hot. Careful of monkeys as they can grab your sunnies or hats etc. A monkey came and bite a part of my flip flogs off. Entry fee 30,000. Worth it.

We went mid morning and even though the is a little walking up and down i would highly recommend getting the early or later in the day.

The area you walk through to get to the temple is highly maintained forest with monkeys. You walk on concrete (which was warm by the time we got there).
The view and setting is completely awe inspiring and i definitely will go back for an evening with show and sunset.
Be care of the monkeys with your possessions though. They have learnt of they take your hat, sunglasses phone etc they get food for retrieval of items. If the security isn't around & they are not fed quick enough you tend not to get the items back.

When in Bali, this is a must see place. Ulu Watu Temple is located on a cliff with a beautiful view to the Indian Ocean. Its not wheelchair or stroller friendly and its a long walk by the cliffs with lots of stairs. But if you are able, don't miss this opportunity.
There is an entrance fee at the entrance. And since its a holy place you need cover your lower part with cloth if its exposed. You can get it at the entrance and its free. Just drop it into a basket on the way out for the next. Bring with you a hat and bottles of water. And also a good camera

Becareful, there are very cheeky and aggressive monkeys everywhere. I saw a tourist get her handphone snatched away. Just don't disturb them and keep your valuables in your pocket and move around in groups. Then you will be safe. A lot of tourist disturb them.

Uluwatu is a popular spot for both sunset and the evening fire dance -- that means it will be very crowded in the evening. It will also be very hot, as there is no protection from the sun as is sets in the west, but you can walk out a ways and get a view back at the temple in the light of the setting sun, which is nice. Go early if you have a preference for where you sit to watch the dancing - a view that includes the sunset will be blinding, but dramatic. They PACK the auditorium -- late comers may end up sitting on the concrete floor by the dancers, so don't wait until the last minute. Note that this is a storytelling dance, so it is a theater production as much or more than it is a dance. It's an interesting performance.

I believe this place is one of the most interesting places in Bali that all the tourists must see.

It is about 40 minute drive from Nusa Dua. You can rent a car with driver for RP 250,000 to 300,000.

Ulu Watu Temple is located on a cliff with a beautiful view to the Indian Ocean.

First , you must buy an entrance ticket ( Rp 3000) and cover your lower part with a veil or cloth which are all in a big basket and charge free.

You can bring something to feed monkeys as they are there for welcoming you. Don't panic! They are funny . Just be aware of your belongings.

Then you either go straight to the temple for shooting pictures or to the left side of temple to walk alongside the wall separating you and the ocean .

The best time for visiting this place is before sunset for two main reasons :

1) seeing sunset
2) better weather ( less humidity and warmth).

At 6:30 there is a Kacak dance .

Anyway , don't forget one thing !
Be there two hours before sunset to avoid traffic .

Bring with you hat and bottles of water

The temple is at the edge of cliff and offer greatest sunset view. Best time to visit is at 3pm and you can continue to see Kecak and Fire Dance just next to the temple. The show start at 7pm.
