Wonderful views of the cliff and the temple. Do see the Kechak dance for sure. Tip: Carry an umbrella, I was told by my driver that monkeys wont bother you if you carry one! It did work for us.

Uluwatu temple sits at the edge of a high cliff looking out over the Bali sea. It's a beautiful place to visit and is even better if you find a spot away from all of the other tourists visiting. Watch out for the monkeys, they'll take anything they can get their hands on! Sunsets are said to be stunning at... More

The views of the water are gorgeous! The temple it self was not so much to see for us, perhaps because we didn't have a guide that could explain about it. My sunglasses got stolen by a monkey. It almost seems like a scam where the monkeys take things from tourists, they get food from some "monkey guy" working or... More

The temple itself is nothing special but the view is amazing. You can walk along the cliff and enjoy the beautiful sight to the ocean. Also there is a little forest with some monkeys.

Great scenery view from afar or near of the temple on top of the hill. Relaxing to heard and see the sea wave rushing inward toward the rocky mountain, the water view is beautiful. Stop at any point along the walking path, view at difference angle of the Rocky Mountain and sea is stunning scenery. Beware of those monkeys which... More

Remember to brig sunglasses and hat plus umbrella. It is quite hot to sit there to watch sunset and the show to... More

Monkeys here are very aggressive. Be careful, we saw them taking purse and sunglasses. Once they got it, it is difficult to get back. The temples are great to visit, with great views.

We got our entrance ticket – Adult Rp.30,000 and Child Rp.20,000. At the back of the tickets, written a brief history of the Uluwatu Temple. Visitors must wear a sarong (whom the skirts or pants not reach knee length) and a sash (whom wearing long pants), as well as appropriate clothes common for all the temple visits. We were given...
