Situated on a hill , this temple offers amazing views of the sea . A lovely place to be . Be careful with the monkeys they are always on the brink to snatch your bags or phones . But a beautiful temple overall

Skip the food if you are vegetarian. Sunset is nice. hire a local cab, enjoy the view and if you want decent veg food there are Indian restaurants in the area. A Google search will give you options. Nothing special about... More
We are looking to visit the temple for the one night we are in uluwatu. We should arrive to our hotel around 6, 6:30 and the temple is about 10 minutes away. I know the temple will still be closed, but will it be possible to walk around and take in the view. I know there is a dance the occurs at night that starts at 6, so I am unsure if that would affect this. Thank you!

The place is open till late evening. Temple, tourist and foreigner are not allowed to enter. It's more for the view and kecak dance at sunset this is famous. Be prepared to walk up steep and keep things safe from the monkeys. More
