"Great spot to catch the sunset. The light, the silhouettes, the water below - bring your camera. It is super touristy and can get very crowded, but it's still very much a worthwhile experience. During high tide, it's especially interesting as you can cross through the water to get a blessing. Again very touristy but also a fun experience. "

"Tanah Lot Tample, Located in Tabanan, about 20 kilometres (12 mi) from Denpasar, the temple sits on a large offshore rock which has been shaped continuously over the years by the ocean tide. Tanah Lot is claimed to be the work of the 16th-century Dang Hyang Nirarta. During his travels along the south coast he saw the rock-island's beautiful setting and rested there.  And this place is one of the best place to seeing sunset "

"Tourist rip off. We were utterly unimpressed by the fact that you have to pay an entrance fee to see shops (shitloads of them), two pillars and a stretch of beach that admittedly is quite nice. There was no actual building. There was a prayers room that you couldn't make out because it was situated on a very high rock and, oh, yeh, you are not supposed to go in because, you can guess, you're white. Bottom line: avoid. "

"The Good 1. Saw how hindus do their traditions beach style. 2. They worship the sea 3. Nice views of the temple while the waves are crashing 4. I think sun set here will be nice. Too bad I got here at high noon when the sun is too hot and my pictures cant see the details of the temple. The Bad 1. Lots of people"

"We visited this site with a tour group and made the mistake of going when a celebration was on it took 2.5hours to get into the area and the temple was closed we missed the sunset but was very pretty just dissapointing in the sense we spent all that time and another 2.5hours to get back to hotel after only to get a glimpse of what looks like a really amazing temple"
