It was hot and crowded but the temple is beautiful and overlooking the Indian Ocean. The show starts at 6 so get there in time to get a good seat. The show is really worth seeing. The closer you can get the better.

We liked the fact that is was a different temple, special because it is near the ocean. It is simple but a nice experience to have when you are in uluwatu area.

This temple is nothing special, the cliffside view of the sunset is the best part. The kekac fire dance is incredibly hard to understand and follow even with the brochure describing what each act is.

Views are stunning at Uluwatu Temple! Enjoy the beautiful scene especially when you're at the top. Just be careful with the monkeys as we've witnessed one who snatched the eyeglasses of a lady taking pictures.
