Pura Luhur Uluwatu

Magnificent cliff top location

What we say: 4 stars

When the sun sets over the Indian Ocean, the silhouette of the temple perched on the edge of the towering cliffs leaves jaws gaping — it is an absolutely stunning sunset point.

At the same time, a kecak dance performance takes place and is so well done that it is definitely worth the 70,000 rupiah entrance fee and is a must-see — even if you are enjoying it with hundreds of other tourists.

Arrive an hour before the sun sets to secure prime position for the dance, which can get very crowded.

Beware of the monkeys at Uluwatu as they have a reputation for stealing anything that is not nailed down including shiny earrings, sunglasses, water bottles and other items that send primates crazy. If something gets stolen, look for a local man with a big stick and some bananas and pay him to bribe the monkey with a banana in exchange for your gear.
