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.

The place is of immense beauty. The surroundings, the cliff beaches are exceptionally beautiful. Absolutely loved stunning views from every angle. You have to be careful with monkeys around. They are attracted to flowers and everything they think they can eat. You have a kind of a long walk along the top of the beach cliff. So worth a visit.
Great place. Views are spectacular. Not expensive to enter. Local fire dancing which needs booking separately. Everyone helpful and relaxing to see. Short walk from car park at top. Visit at sunset gives great photos. Toilets here also. Plenty of small shops to get drinks and gifts. Clean and tidy and paths are well maintained. Can get busy near the temples. Lots of staff speak English also and good signs for directions.
