The temple is not accessible and it's not possible to see it close. However it's worth to visit to do a beautiful cliff walk and see monkeys.

Spectacular cliffs with the temple perched on the end is what this site is about...and worth the visit. Do walk down to the furthest reaches of the paths (both sides) to get the view back to the temple. If you are tempted to try the sunset viewing it can be pretty busy...so be prepared for that. The monkeys are a pain so make sure loose items are put away or held close.

The temple, the ambience, the view and everything was majestic! Word can't describe how beautiful this place when the sunset is coming.

Anyway, there are a lot of monkeys around the temple so make sure you are careful.

It was beautiful with views to die for.
Unfortunately due to mobility issues we did not get up to temple.
What made me sad was a white monkey all on his own in a cage due to being attacked by all the other monkeys as he is different.
I completely understand why he is isolated as he nearly died from one attack and you can see his broken fingers.
It was just so sad to see him so alone as monkeys are social creatures and would love to see some fund raising to get him a partner, he must be so lonely.
Otherwise well worth a trip. Thanks to our driver Nyoman Witastra, the best driver in 5 visits to Bali .

Worth coming to but expect crowds of people. Very cool cliff views. Lots of monkeys around so be careful of them. Would make a good sunset spot too

Beautiful temple and certainly worth a visit. Our driver came with us and acted as a guide which was great as he explained all about the temple. He also brought his 'long stick' in case we had a 'monkey meeting' Didn't happen but we did follow advice not to wear sunglasses or flashy jewellery and didn't carry any food/drink. Saw lots of moneys but no bother from them. The views are incredible and just breath taking. If you're not into temple viewing you should still take this visit for the views alone. Best time to go is early morning to avoid the crowds. We got there for about 10am and more or less had the place to ourselves. Our advice would be to do the temple in the morning the go off and explore Uluwatu taking a late lunch at Sundays Beach Club (make a reservation) before heading back to the temple to see the fire dance.

I originally wanted to skip this tour but good thing that our tour guide encouraged us. The views were absolutely incredible and watching the waves & the cliff was such a humbling experience.

Unfortunately, we came in early but all the tickets were sold out for the fire dance.

Very delightful visit to this temple
The cliffs are very magnificent. The scenery is out of this world.
The entrance fee and the parking fee are a bit hight (100 000 + 5000 parking), but if the money is used to preserve this place .it's worth it.
The monkeys inside are a plus. Try to avoid having food or glasses one near the monkeys.

We went there in the evening with the intention of catching the sun setting over the horizon and we were not disappointed. The views were really nice. To top it off, a monkey decided to come see what we were doing and decided to survey us as we were trying to watch the setting sun. We were unable to catch the fire dance due to paucity of time but will surely see it next time we are in Bali..
