Create an itinerary including Uluwatu Temple
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.

  • Amazing hindu temple on the cliff overlooking the deep blue sea♡ The view is stunning. You need to wear sarong to get it the temple area. Be careful with your hat, sun glasses, and mobile. Monkeys are naughty. They like to snatch them. Would love to go back again.
  • A beautiful and serene temple built on sea cliff. We visited here in 2019. I recommend visiting the temple in early morning if you don’t like crowds. Amazing views of the sea, surrounding cliffs and trees. You will have to wear a sarong. Some of the worship areas are closed for tourists. There are quite number of monkeys, so don’t bring food.
