This temple is incredible, truly breathtaking. Go early in the morning to avoid the mid-day stifling heat! Try and go on a colder day to avoid heat exhaustion.

The temple and the view from there is really amazing. Beware of cheeky monkies in the area, they steal everything they can get their hands on. Especially sunglasses. One lady got her raybands thrown off the cliff by one cheeky monkey.

your typical temple on a cliff overlooking the sea :) Ideal place to get your selfie with the sun setting over the sea. The kecak dance($8) is not for everybody but worth seeing once.

Uluwatu is very special. The views of the sea are amazing and the temples beautiful. Beware of the monkeys we say them steal at least 3 pairs of sunglasses whilst we were walking around. The setting is simply stunning for this temple. We went at...More
