Bali offers spectacular sunsets against the horizon, painting the skyline a myriad of orange, yellow, pink and purple. Although there are many spots for catching a gorgeous sunset, Uluwatu is our favorite. On the edge of a cliff 825 feet high Uluwatu is a traditional Balinese temple that faces the mighty Indian Ocean. The view of the sunset from here is truly breathtaking.
