Tanah Lot is just a very pleasent place to visit. We took a bike from Ubud to Tanah Lot and ran into many locals trying to navigate our way there.
Upon arrival to Tanah Lot we came across a bat that was there. I just had to take a photo.
Tanah lot can be a bit annoying if you want to get there while tide is down and it isnt. You have a lot of waiting, like we did, so dont get there too early. Unless you want to get photos of the place while in the water.
There is plenty to do to kill time, from shopping, relaxing, walking or eating.
Once the tide is down you can visit the temple (some what) a bit closer.

definitely WORTH THE VISIT... prior to the temple.. theres tons of shops selling clothes at very very cheap prices.. beware! they will first quote u very very high prices eg 40000rp and then u can easily discount to 20000rp . if they say no, walk away! they r sure to offer you 20000rp! also.. make a good visit across e waters to vist the tanah lot temple.. must must must go!

Whether you are an ocean lover or a Hindu devotee, there is no doubt that Tanah Lot has a powerful spiritual draw on anyone lucky enough to lay eyes on this special holy place. While the temple itself is amongst the most beautiful of Bali's pura worship sites, the connection with the turquoise sea is what really sets this place apart. The ocean rolls right up to the base of the temple, waves lapping at her stonework. Unfortunately, it can be a little crowded and over-touristy at times, but no wonder, this is a place not easily forgotten.Recommended for:

What used to be a place of worship and pilgrimage for the locals has turned into somewhat of an overly commercialized hot-spot for tourists to come in trolls and be promised something spectacular by their tour guides, only to find it uneventful. To get in and out of the temples, you'd need to pass through a tourist market twice the size. Don't get me wrong I think its a nice place to visit, however it would do good with a little less tourist gimmicks.Recommended for:

We enjoyed our visit to Tanah Lot Temple mostly because of its magnificent location by the sea. We didnt visit near sunset, a popular time to visit since the tide would recede around that time allowing visitors to climb to the temple and of course the beautiful sunset colors. Even so, we were treated by views of the temple unobstructed by people. Perhaps next time we go at sunset!

Don't understand the fuzz around Tanah Lot Temple, the only thing I can think of is the sunset, but you get it elsewhere as well for example at Kuta Beach. It's overcrowded, you can't even go on the island itself, I understand it's still the #1 tourist attraction in Bali but personally I think it's overrated, there's plenty more to discover in Bali.

A picturesque sunset spot. The temple is on an island accessible by foot at low tide, but visitors are not allowed to enter it. There are a number of scenic vantage points around the coastline though. It can get quite crowded and touristy though.

This place was amazing, even though the day we went it was raining and miserable so I didn't get the kind of photos I wanted. While we were here there was a festival happening with a parade which was pretty cool as well! Only real bad point was there were about 10million other tourists there, and it wasn't even a nice day!

Tanah Lot is a truly one of a kind location located off of Bali's coast about 20 kilometers from Denspar. The Tanah Lot Temple is thought to have been constructed way back in the 15th century, and has much religious and cultural significance in Bali. The complex actually sits upon an offshore rock/island. Views from mainland Bali to this isolated ocean temple are absolutely breathtaking, particularly during sunset. If you find yourself in Bali don't miss out on this iconic attraction.
