Batu Bolong and Tanah Lot is dramatically located on the Tabanan coast. Built on a promontory only accessible at low tide, this temple is one of the most important in Bali. It means “Sea Temple of the Earth”. This stunning religious complex and impressive architectural feat sits on a gigantic jagged rock that rises out of the ocean on Bali’s southern coast. While you’ll have to wait for low tide to reach the temple, adding that snapping a photo of Tanah Lot Temple at sunset is a must. World Monuments Watch lists it as one of the 100 most endangered and historical sites in the world.
People come to watch the sunsets from the park opposite the temple. Another good spot to see the temple is from Pura Batu Bolong, another beautiful temple on the west side. It is part of a magnificent series of temples along the south coast, all dedicated to the protective sea spirits.
Admission is IDR 50.000/person
