Pura Tanah Lot –This is an iconic temple of Bali nestled around twenty kilometers from Kuta in the northwest. It sits on rocky terrain with waves crashing on the surroundings.
End of the day 1, we went to see the famous Tanah Lot temple to see the sunset. It is one of the most beautiful temple built on the island. This place is generally crowded at sunset time but you will see a lot of vantage points to see the sunset.
We drove for about an hour from Taman Ayun to witness sunset from Tanah Lot temple. This temple is typically known for amazing sunset view you will ever get to see. This is situated in an ocean, however they will not let you enter temple unless you are there for a prayer. Still, you can spend time on beach, walk to the temple holding your shoes in one and partner's hand in another hand, reach out to stones surrounded by water and feel the breeze of wind and water.I would recommend to go to Tanah Lot in the evening and witness the sunset.The day was little bit tiring, so we went to hotel and ordered Indian food from GRAB just like any food delivery application.
Although we ended up lazing around, one may visit Tanah lot temple (drive of 1.5hrs from Seminyak), the signature location of Bali on Google. It is a Hindu temple in the middle of the water offering mesmerizing sunset view. Entry inside the temple is restricted for tourists but it is said that it is spectacular to catch the nature painting the portrait of ocean and sky kissing!
