The tranquility of the place is no doubt the best Bali. Its just a few minutea walk from the parking lot to the Temple. Wear a sarong before entering to pay respect. There are wild monkey around so be careful. The view of the sea from here is spectacular.

We have been travelling around Bali for almost 3 weeks now without any hassle. We were told by our legitimate Blue Bird taxi driver that he was only able to drop us off at this particular temple, but he'd wait for us up the road after we were finished. The temple itself isn't anything spectacular when it comes to Indonesian... More

If your stopping in Uluwatu this is worthy of a visit, be sure to abide by local customs on dress and yes you can just roll up and grab a ticket yourself. Its a big site to walk around but unfortunately you cant get near the actual temples which no-one tells you? This is why we dont recommend it if... More

I visited the Uluwatu temple one hot sunny afternoon. It was a pity I could not stay for sunset as I had a plane to catch in the evening. The scenery was great and there were many scenic spots along the path. Will definitely visit during sunset in future.

If you visit Bali, this place must be in your schedule. The combination of breathtaking view of straight cliff and evening sunset sea is just awesome. Must reach there by 1600. To have enough time for a good evening walk and then kecak dance (must watch) starts at 1745.

Whist the location is simply stunning, in our opinion the Kecak Dance is to be avoided. Only reason is the organisers pack far too many people into the auditorium and it became claustrophobic. The exit aisles ended up becoming seating and so too did the dance arena leaving little to no space for the performers. We had our four year... More

You can call it Great Ocean road of Asia, the view from here is exactly same as The Twelve Aopostels of Australia. The Balinese wind here will drive you crazy! A must visit!

We came to see the sunset, and did not expect to experience the temple along with the local monkeys! Although the monkeys are very mischievous and will do just about anything to steal your sunglasses, they made for some very nice sunset-watching companions. We were joined in watching a fiery sunset along the coast with easily 30+ monkeys, including babies!... More

Best attraction in south side of Bali so far! The temple is placed on a cliff that has beautiful view right to the sea. You have to walk down the stairs full of people and somehow it could be a little bit slippery when it's rainy. My friend & I found a secret place to see the sunset away from... More
