We started driving bike for Uluwatu temple as weather was sunny but not very hot. I had picked this destination first as it was around 35 min from my hotel in South. We reached temple, spent around two hours there in admiring beauty of ocean and Balinese structure. (I will not write much about attractions as all the attractions I visited are very beautiful. Instead, I will talk more about trip which will help you planning).
Uluwatu Temple: Pura Luhur Uluwatu is one among the seven major temples in Bali. The sea temple of Uluwatu is built on the edge (ulu) of a rock (watu), hence the name. Uluwatu temple is believed to have been built in 11th century. Only Hindu worshippers are allowed to enter the temple. The temple is believed to protect Bali from sea evils. You can enjoy the beautiful sunset on the cliff along with the famous Kecak dance performance specially arranged for visitors.
An afternoon excursion to Uluwatu Temple in Bali: The next day I had decided to go for half day sunset tour to Uluwatu temple. From Sanur it takes around 1.5 hours to reach Uluwatu temple, i had started at 3 pm in the afternoon. The entrance to #ULuwatu temple is 30K IDR per person. Sarong is available for free and all are purple in colour. However if you are wearing any dress below the knees, you don't need any sarong. The #ULuwatu temple is built up in the hills; there are long but small steps to be taken to reach up to the temple watching over the roaring sea. This temple is famous for its sunset and Kecak dance show (costs 100K per person for dance show) which is optional. However this temple is always packed with tourists, but without any doubt the sunset is very very beautiful. The sky changing its colour the reflection of it on the water body is spectacular. People patiently wait to see the sunset and it's unforgettable.
In the afternoon head to Uluwatu Temple another famous temple of Bali and watch the world famous Kecak Dance by the ocean during the sunset. You will love the entire atmosphere of the Kecak Dance at the Uluwatu temple in Bali.
Has an entry fee - will provide a wrap around cover to be worn inside temple premise - the day we visited it was extremely crowded with tourists - it houses a lot of monkeys who normally go about their own business if not provoked. All in all this is a beautiful sea temple atop a cliff which is known for some scenic sunset views.
