|About these ratings|
Most jaws drop at the sight of Tanah Lot Temple. This stunning religious complex sits on a gigantic jagged rock that rises out of the ocean. From Bali's southern coast, you can marvel at this architectural feat, and you'll have to wait for low tide to reach the temple. But, it might not be worth the wait: Non-Balinese are not permitted to enter the temple. Still, snapping a photo of Tanah Lot Temple at sunset is a must. One TripAdvisor user says, "Even though you can walk up to it and be blessed by the monks in low tide, it looks far more spectacular on high tide."
Tanah Lot Temple is a 30 to 40-minute car ride north of Kuta. You'll find a tourist outpost filled with tiny restaurants and shopping stalls on the nearby coast. You can visit the temple from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. each day. Admission to the temple's rocky perch reportedly costs 3,300 IDR ($0.35 USD).
