Discover Bali's spiritual side by visiting Uluwatu Temple, offering some of the finest ocean views on the island. One of six holiest shrines in Bali, this structure sits on the edge of rocky cliffs rising dramatically over the sea's foaming waves. Much of the current shrine probably dates back to the 11th century, when a Javanese sage expanded and improved a preexisting but much smaller structure. A band of monkeys inhabits the temple--watch out they don't snatch your purse or other belongings. Though non-Hindu visitors cannot enter the inner temple, they're free to hike around the area. For travelers who use our online itinerary creator, Pecatu holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Uluwatu Temple and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

This is one of the most beautiful temples we visited! The view from the cliff is simply stunning. We recommend to be there before 17:00 and get in the row inside for the limited tickets for the dance. It's unique and with the sunset is such a beautiful memory to take back home. Be ware you have to find early a good sit and it can be very warm there while waiting for the event to start, maybe bring an umbrella or wet towel! Oh and something to drink
