We managed to nail the weather on the day which is a must do since nothing is under cover.
We went for sunset which I highly recommend as the temple views are incredible but photos look amazing with the ambience of the coloured sky.
After sunset, everyone piles out pretty quickly which creates lots of traffic getting out and on the roads nearby.
If you have time, sit in the gardens (there is ample lighting) grab a BBQ corn, cold drink or brouse the stores for half hr and you'll have a much easier trip home. Our driver recommended this and it really paid off when we saw the mass exit.
Even though access to the temple is restricted, the entire landscape is still incredible and worth 2hrs of your time.

We chose to visit Tanah Lot, the ancient Hindu temple dedicated to the gods of the sea, in the morning instead of sunset when it is a popular photo spot. It was beautiful with not as many crowds and very peaceful with the floral offerings. The scenery is gorgeous. In the far distance, you can see the construction of Donald Trump's Indonesian resort

A sunset at Tanah lot temple at Bali is an exhilarating experience. The temple stands on a rock just off the shore but was closed for visitors due to high tide, perhaps.
The place around has flat rocks so one can stand in the sea water with the temple in the foreground and the setting sun in the background. It's a sight worth a thousand words.
A small hillock nearby gives another view of the sun sinking into the ocean.

Very beautiful attraction in Bali, it is a must visit! Amazing cliff views, temples and scenery. I highly recommend coming early in the morning (upon opening) or to see the sunset here. Be prepared because it can be very busy.

Viewing the Temple and capturing the sun setting beside it was a great experience. We have visited the Tanah Lot Temple many,many times over the years and watched it change from a Temple on a hill to an incredible work of art displayed beautifully for the public to wonder over. It is now a landscaped vision that leaves the mind lost for comment. Where we once sat on the grass with camp chairs is now a canopied seating area which, unfortunately, has been commercialised but is now a bit more user friendly. The drive to the Temple has changed beyond belief. What was once a drive through the paddy fields is now a solid continuation of shops/houses/businesses the entire way. A great shame but you cannot halt the future. Still worthy of the extra effort needed to visit.

A dazzling and stunning place . One of the top places to visit. It is a Must-See. It is located in the southwest of Bali and not far from Seminyak if you stay there. Don't miss to try touching and putting a python Snake ( poisonless) in your hands and on your shoulder and take a picture- for that you should pay IDR150.000 or you can take your picture with your mobile for IDR 100.000. It will be a memorable moment in your life. Tanah lot is the best place for taking picture and catching the moments. You can also try drinking coconuts and buy some souvenirs. Do not miss it!.

This was one of our stops on our day long tour. Really neat spot and a must see if you're in Bali. We were here at about 11am, which was great because there were no crowds and you can get unobstructed photos, I know everyone wants the sunset photos but getting your own without having to fight crowds and being photo bombed, it was worth it.

We were here for about 45 minutes in total and got all the photos we needed as a family with the temples in the background...again that is largely based on the time of day we visited.
