Built onto a giant offshore rock, Tanah Lot Temple remains one of the more venerated Hindu structures with strong ties to Balinese mythology. One of seven significant sea temples spread across Bali's coastline, this shrine is allegedly the work of Dan Hyang Nirartha, a 16th-century religious figure and traveler who founded the island's Shaivite priesthood. Though you can walk to the rock during low tide, keep in mind that non-Balinese visitors cannot enter the temple itself. The site--one of the most photographed in Bali--draws huge crowds at sunset, when soft light bathes the area and creates a nearly magical atmosphere.

Tanah Lot Temple Reviews
• The best time to visit Tanah Lot is in the evening, an hour before sunset to capture the most magnificent sunset views. • If you wish to avoid crowds, especially during high tourist season, suggest ... more »
Sicuramente il tempio più suggestivo dell'isola di Bali.

Positioned on a steep rock with the waves crashing on the wall facing the sea makes this place truly unique. All the guides advise against going there at sunset due to the crowds of people on the site and traffic on the roads that is generated during the return of tourists to the hotel. My advice: just for this case don't listen to the guides. True everything they say but the game is worth the candle. Matches with serenity and let yourself be enchanted by the sunset views from the cliff. Ultimately you are on vacation and I don't know how many times you happen to be on the island of Bali while the last sunrays radiate out and illuminate the time Tanah Lot temple with its light. A small gem only for those who have read the whole review: when you are in front of the temple go left and climb the opposite cliff. You'll have fewer people around to enjoy the scenery and being you away people are small and not very influential in photographs without compromising the shot. I also add a picture to better understand what I mean.
One of the popular tourist places in Bali. You can find a “pura” or temple. The temple is located on a large offshore rock which very near to the ocean. Before entering the temple area, you may find many souvenirs shops and restaurants. There are also some ATM centers. There are some photographers near the area who offered you to take a good photo. You also can enjoy the view whilst drinking coffee from above hills near the ocean and see the temple from above.
A beautiful place to visit while in Bali. Entry fee is IDR 60000 which is quite high! The complex is good with temple and shops of different kinds. The rocks and water blow is mind blowing! Recommended to visit. Wheelchair access is possible. Good place to pass your idle time by ocean side.
