Pura Uluwatu

Pura Uluwatu is one of Bali’s most famous temples.  It isn’t famous because of the temple itself but rather because it is perched atop an amazing 70 meter cliff above the Indian Ocean.  There are also thieving monkeys all around that tourists enjoy.

How to get there – Go south past the airport taking Jalan Raya Uluwatu.  This road will take you straight to Pura Uluwatu but be aware that it is a slow because of heavy traffic.

What to see – There are monkeys everywhere.  The inner temple is closed to tourists and the rest of the temple isn’t really that impressive.  The best part is walking along the cliffside trail (with railings) in both directions from the temple.  You can walk about 15 minutes in each direction with extraordinary views.

Entrance cost – 20,000 IDR/person

Special requirements – visitors are borrowed a yellow sash to wear – visitors in shorts are borrowed a purple sarong.
